Why isn’t Manchester United vs Leeds on TV? Rearranged fixture to be played this week in Premier League double-header opener
Manchester United host Leeds at Old Trafford on Wednesday in the first game of their Premier League double-header this week.
It will be the first meeting between the two teams this season before the reverse game at Elland Road this weekend.
Man United were due to face Leeds in September last year but the match was postponed following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
After months of waiting for the game to be given another date, it was finally due to take place this week on February 8.
Why isn’t Man United vs Leeds on TV?
The game will not air on TV this week as the original match was not chosen to air in the UK.
If a match that is not chosen for broadcast is rescheduled, the rearranged match still cannot be shown on television.
Although the game may not be available to watch, talkSPORT will bring you EXCLUSIVE live commentary on Wednesday.
Adrian Durham will present the Old Trafford cover while commentary will come from Sam Matterface and former England defender Micky Gray.

The game will be Leeds’ first without manager Jesse Marsch who was relieved of his duties on Monday afternoon.
Marsch was sacked after Los Blancos were beaten by Nottingham Forest at the weekend leaving them just one spot outside the relegation zone.
In his place, Chris Armas, Michael Skubala and Paco Gallardo will be in the dugout on Wednesday.
talkSPORT understands West Brom manager Carlos Corberan is being considered as a potential replacement but is unlikely to take over before facing Man United.
Managerless Leeds will face Erik ten Hag as they look to capitalize on recent defeats to Man City and Arsenal and place themselves firmly in the Premier League title chase.
