"So Sad", Reason Why United vs Villa Match Won't be Shown Live on TV Despite Being an Early Kick-Off

Man United will host Aston Villa on Saturday 2:30 East African Time in a hotly contested English Premier League match. The two clubs spent heavily on new signings in the recently concluded summer window which saw Man City splash a British record fee for the Villa captain Jack Grealish. This facilitated incomings of Leon Bailey, Emi Buendia, Ashley Young and Danny Ings. United have Ronaldo, Sancho amd Varane.

Big blow for United fans as their match against Villa wont be shown live on TV in the United Kingdom deapite the match being an early kick off. Solskjaer men will get down into business at 12:30 BST. This becomes the second consecutive home fixture that is not screened live. Confusion came in as the time for the fixture was switched and instead BT Sport are covering Chelsea vs Man City match live from Stamford Bridge.

However the reason for the switch is due to a music concert taking place at the Old Trafford cricket ground on Saturday. Trafford Council's Safety Advisory Group made a request to move United's clash as communicated earlier this month.
