“The club reiterates that the safety and security of our fans is paramount and, after considering all available options, we are supportive of the decision that was made in conjunction with the relevant authorities. Please note, tickets already purchased for the game will remain valid for the new match date and we will contact ticket holders directly with further information when it is available.

“We appreciate the disappointment and inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your understanding and continued support. The fixture will now be rescheduled and updated details will follow in due course.”

United’s Europa League trip to Moldova against Sheriff Tiraspol will go ahead as planned. But United and the Premier League will now need to find a time to reschedule matches against Crystal Palace and Leeds later in the season.

It’s highly unlikely the two league matches will be played before the season breaks up for the World Cup with United playing 13 matches in just six weeks after the international break.
