Tottenham will return to Premier League action against Manchester United at home on Friday, June 19th, it has been confirmed.
Spurs’ crunch clash with United – which could have a significant bearing on Champions League qualification for both clubs – is set to be the second game to take place on the first weekend of the Premier League’s return. Kick-off is scheduled for 8:15pm, just over two hours after Norwich City face Southampton.

The match will be broadcast on Sky Sports, but won’t be free-to-air like some other games picked up by Sky.
Two games – Aston Villa vs Sheffield United and Manchester City vs Arsenal – will take place in the midweek slots before Tottenham play United. Those fixtures were re-scheduled because Aston Villa and Manchester City were involved in the Carabao Cup Final.
Tottenham fans have been reacting to the schedule confirmation on Twitter. The Londoners face two more difficult matches, against West Ham United and Sheffield United, after the Manchester United game, and some supporters are clearly worried about a tough restart.
Others are more optimistic, while many are just excited to have football back. Check out some of the best reactions below.
