Manchester City and Manchester United will clash at Wembley Stadium on Saturday April 16 after City's Europa League run came to an end.

The game will kick off at 5.15pm with Bolton Wanderers facing Stoke City at 4pm on the Sunday. Both games will be staged at Wembley Stadium.

The game would have been staged on Sunday April 17 if City had continued their involvement in the Europa League, but a 2-1 aggregate defeat to Dynamo Kiev in the last 16 on Thursday ended that prospect.

A Sunday meeting would have been a major headache for the Metropolitan Police with Arsenal due to host Liverpool in the Premier League and the London Marathon taking place on the same day, but that has now been averted.

Goal of the month: February
