March date set for crunch fixture


The postponed league clash between Chelsea and Manchester United has been provisionally rescheduled for March 1.

The original match, due to take place on December 19, was called off after heavy snow in west London and there has been much conjecture over a new date, with European and domestic games to work around.

The new date is also pencilled in at present as it could change, should either team be involved in an FA Cup fifth-round replay.

If both the Blues and Utd are knocked out before March 1, then the crunch Premier League game at Stamford Bridge could be moved to a previous cup weekend.
