Norwich City's penultimate home game of the Premier League season has been moved to an earlier kick-off after being selected for live television coverage.
Manchester United's visit to Carrow Road has been switched to a 12.45pm kick-off but remains on the same date, on Saturday, May 7.
The clash with the Red Devils will be screened on BT Sport, following hot on the heels of two other televised matches for the Canaries.
BT Sport are also screening City's home clash with Sunderland at 12.45pm on Saturday, April 16 and Sky Sports are showing Alex Neil's team's away fixture at Arsenal at 5.30pm on Saturday, April 30.
Louis van Gaal's team, who are still chasing Champions League qualification despite a disappointing season, will be looking to avenge a 2-1 loss to Norwich in December – when goals from Cameron Jerome and Alex Tettey earned City's first win at Old Trafford in over 26 years.
The match will be followed by Watford's visit to Carrow Road on Wednesday, May 11 (7.45pm), before the Canaries complete their campaign at Everton on Saturday, May 15 (3pm).
• City will be showing live coverage of Saturday's crucial Premier League clash at Crystal Palace in two different lounges at Carrow Road.

Having quickly sold out their allocation of tickets for the big game at Selhurst Park, the Canaries decided to arrange a video beam-back of the fixture.
City supporters snapped up all available seats in the Gunn Club early in the week and more fans will now be able to watch the game in the Russell Allison Lounge.
Tickets cost £5 and include a free pie and pint. Doors will open at noon, with fans also having the opportunity to watch the live Sky game between West Ham United and Arsenal at Upton Park (kick-off 12.45pm).
