Newcastle United's home game against Manchester United has been brought forward 24 hours for live broadcast.

The Premier League match, originally scheduled for January 13, will now be played on Wednesday, January 12 (7.45pm kick-off) so it can be screened by BT Sport.

Newcastle held Louis van Gaal's side to a goalless draw at Old Trafford early this season in a televised game.

Sky Sports have not chosen to screen any United games in January.
