The dates for United's home league games with Wigan and Fulham have now been confirmed.

The Reds will entertain Steve Bruce's men on Wednesday 14 January, kick-off 20:00 GMT. The game has been moved due to United's participation in the Club World Cup in Japan later this month.

However, should either club be involved in an FA Cup 3rd round replay, then a new date will need to be found for the game.

Fulham will now travel to Old Trafford on Tuesday 17 February, kick-off 20:00 GMT. The Cottagers had been due in Manchester at the end of August, but United's involvement in the UEFA Super Cup saw the match postponed.

United's fixture list for early 2009 has been amended again today following the selection of two games for live TV coverage.

Close on the heels of Fulham and Wigan being rearranged, there's a new date for West Ham away and a new kick-off time for Blackburn at home.

West Ham v United, originally Saturday 7 February will now be played on Sunday 8 February at 16:00 GMT. The match will be shown live on Sky.

United v Blackburn will still be played on Saturday 21 February but it kicks off at 17:30 GMT for broadcast by Setanta.

The previous fixture news tidied up two postponements caused by this month's Club World Cup in Japan and last August's excursion to Monaco for the Super Cup. Wigan come to Old Trafford on Wednesday 14 January and Fulham follow on Tuesday 17 February.

So while the Christmas Day league table will show two games in hand for United, these games will have been played by mid-February, making the state of the title race much clearer.
