Cape Town - A new date for the postponed Manchester derby between Manchester United and Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium has been confirmed by the Premier League.

Manchester City will host United on Thursday, April 27 after the original fixture was postponed due to United's participation in the EFL Cup final against Southampton.

English Premiership fixtures hardly take place on a Thursday with the unconventional decision possibly in light of an attempt by the FA to accommodate the two teams as much as possible.

This comes after Mourinho hit out at officials who compile the fixture list saying that "they don't give a s**t" about teams competing in Europe and that his team has "many enemies".

Kick is at 22:00.
