Manchester United are facing a pivotal few weeks that will see them take on the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and PSG during February and March 2019.
The Red Devils learned their fate this morning after they were drawn to face Paris Saint-Germain in the last-16 of the Champions League having qualified for the knockout stages by finishing second in their group.
United will entertain the French champions in the first leg on Tuesday 12th February – three days after their trip to Fulham and four days before their huge Premier League clash with Liverpool at Old Trafford.
Jose Mourinho’s men then take on Crystal Palace and Southampton before the crucial Champions League second leg against PSG. The game at the Parc des Princes will take place on the 6th March just days before Man Utd take on Arsenal at the Emirates.
The following week, Manchester United will then entertain rivals Manchester City at Old Trafford in the Manchester Derby on the 16th March so they face a nightmare four-and-a-half-week spell during February and March that will define their season.

A run of good results could see United reach the quarter finals of the Champions League and boost their hopes of finishing in the top four, but if they come unstuck then the pressure will be firmly on Mourinho’s shoulders – assuming he’s still in charge at that point.
Mourinho’s position at Old Trafford has come under fresh scrutiny following their 3-1 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday which has left them 19 points off top spot and 11 adrift of fourth-placed Chelsea after just 17 games.
Some fans are calling for Mourinho’s head and he could be given the chop if the poor results continue during Christmas and in to the New Year ahead of that pivotal few weeks in February and March.
