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.

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 defeat saw Ole Gunnar Solskjaer come under sharp criticism once again, with a number of fans demanding his sacking.
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.
United are scheduled to take on Atalanta at Old Trafford in their Group F meeting on Wednesday, October 20, before hosting rivals Liverpool in the EPL four days later.
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.
All five matches are expected to have a bearing on Ole's future at Old Trafford even as he looks to win his first title as United boss.
