Manchester United kick off the season on a Monday night, after our game against Everton has been moved so it can be shown live on television.
Paul Scholes, who this time last year was planning what he was going to do in retirement, has said it’s frustrating having to wait to start the season.
“It’s happened in the past sometimes,” Scholes told MUTV. “Everton away is a big game and it’s one TV will want to televise live. It’s just the way it is. It’s a bit frustrating as you want to get going as fast as you can with a Saturday game and get some points under your belt. But we’ll have to wait until Monday night and hopefully we can win the game.”
