The break will be staggered over a two-week period. There will be only five matches on one weekend, with the other five games from that round taking place the following weekend, ensuring that each team gets one week off.
Immediately on the first matchday, there will be one of the biggest matches of the season between Solskjaer’s Manchester United and Chelsea.
