Leeds United trip to Manchester United could be postponed - Stan Collymore

There is a chance that Manchester United against Leeds United on Sunday (18 September) could be postponed, according to Stan Collymore.

The Whites have already had their home game against Nottingham Forest, due to be played on Monday (12 September) postponed in the wake of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

But with her funeral now scheduled for 19 September, there are fears that policing is in short supply across the country which could jeopardise the biggest games of the weekend.

The Red Devils against the Whites is certainly one of those that would require a big police presence but Collymore has said via Twitter that “United v Leeds likely to be postponed.”

That was backed up by Daily Mail journalist Mike Keegan who said: “No final decision but not hearing great things about the chances for Manchester United v Leeds,” on his Twitter account.


In a year where the Qatar World Cup is already causing havoc for the scheduling of league matches in England and around the world, this is the last thing that any Premier League side needs.

Some things are, understandably, out of the control of the FA, Premier League and the clubs but every effort has to be made to ensure the games go ahead to avoid absolute chaos in terms of rearranged games later in the season.

Manchester United could potentially have European games to play after the turn of the year and they will quickly run out of midweeks to be able to play games that have been called off.

Every team now has one more to find room for already and even more could end up causing mass panic and the potential need for three games in a week.

It is now in the hands of Manchester police and only they can really say if the game can go ahead or not now.
