MANCHESTER UNITED fans are up in arms as they face travel chaos in the run-up to Christmas thanks to fixture rearrangements.
All three of United’s away games in December have been moved so they finish AFTER the last trains back to Manchester.
The Red Devils travel to Norwich, Brentford and Newcastle as they gear up for the busy festive fixture schedule.
Their clash with the newly-acquired Magpies has been shifted from Boxing Day to December 27th and now kicks off at 8pm.
The last direct train from Newcastle to Manchester departs at 8.06pm.
Supporters were left to fume on social media as they accused the Premier League of ignoring fans attending matches in favour of TV audiences.
User ‘redlynton’ wrote on Twitter: “A joke! And moving home games to 12:30pm kick off too…I long for the days of Saturday at 3pm.”
Fan ‘devilsred11’ added: “They don't care one bit, as long as the telly fans (who do most of the abusive s**** on here) are happy then it's OK, us the followers? Tough”

And ‘jah4milton’ wrote: “Terrible state of affairs. Every TV fan wants supporters back in the stadium but doesn’t care how much it costs us, how we get there and how we get home.”
United play a whopping eight times in December following a stacked November which sees them take on Man City and Chelsea.
Before facing Newcastle they first meet Norwich in a 5.30pm kick-off before travelling to Brentford three days later for a 7.30pm start.
Spare a thought for Brighton fans going the other way though – they travel to Old Trafford from the south coast on December 18th for a 12.30pm kick-off.
