Man United are scheduled for a daunting run of fixtures in the coming weeks across competitions including a meeting with rivals Man City.
The demanding calendar comes amid United's torrid form that has seen them pick just two wins in seven matches.
The Red Devils, who earlier in the season were touted as favourites to win the league were handed a reality check on Saturday, October 16, after they were humbled by Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.
Despite taking an early lead through Mason Greenwood, the hosts staged a dramatic comeback to hunt down United, with Youri Tielemans, Jamie Vardy, Parson Daka and Caglar Soyuncu.

The Norwegian is now facing an uphill task in his bid to steady the ship but could come short tactically if his side's upcoming fixtures are anything to go by.

Ole's wards will then take a trip to London at the end of October to take on Tottenham before heading to Italy for the second leg of their fixture with Atalanta on Tuesday, November 2.
United will follow up the trip with a home match against rivals Man City four days later in a Premier League cracker.
