Man United in trouble over fixtures

Manchester United could face a fixture pile-up as the title race reaches its conclusion as the FA have announced the league leaders will travel to Wigan Athletic on Wednesday, May 13

In addition, if the Premier League leaders reach the semi-finals of the Champions League, it will result in five games in fourteen vital days as they seek to retain their league and European crown.

Sir Alex Ferguson, the United manager, caused a storm by refusing to talk to Sky Sports after their 4-1 humiliation to Liverpool – angry at his side having to play at 12.45pm on a Saturday following a Wednesday night Champions League tie against Inter Milan. United will now play Manchester City at home, Wigan away and Arsenal at home in a critical seven-day period.

The match at the JJB Stadium was originally scheduled for April 18 but had to be postponed because of their FA Cup semi-final clash with Everton at Wembley that weekend.
