Manchester United v Leeds was once described as “the most intense and inexplicable rivalry in English football”.
And the neutrals will sit back and enjoy every nerve in the feud after the two clubs faced each other twice in the Premier League in just a few days this week.
United were due to host rivals West Yorkshire at Old Trafford on September 18.
However, the game was one of three Premier League clashes to be postponed due to a lack of police resources ahead of Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral.
The game has now been rearranged for Wednesday February 8 and will be live exclusively on talkSPORT.

The reverse fixture between United and Leeds at Elland Road was still scheduled for Sunday February 12, four days later.
In a statement, the Premier League said it was “giving supporters as much notice as possible by announcing this potential match date” ahead of FA Cup fourth round matches.
The statement continued: “The League also recognizes the unique circumstances of teams who have played each other twice in the same week, with Leeds United v Manchester United scheduled for Sunday February 12.
“This is to avoid potential fixture congestion later in the season.”
