Manchester United fans dramatically broke into Old Trafford and invaded the pitch in protest against the Glazer family, leaving their Premier League match against Liverpool in doubt.
The Red Devils were among 12 clubs that signed up for the breakaway European Super League, which collapsed within 48 hours due to huge, unrelenting pressure.
Those plans brought anger against the already despised Glazer family to a new level, with fans congregating at Old Trafford to demand change ahead of Sunday’s Premier League match against rivals Liverpool.
Should the match go ahead, United’s title hopes are all but over as they sit second, 10 points behind Man City - but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would love to deal a hammer blow to Liverpool’s Champions League hopes with a result on Sunday.
Date, kick-off time and venue
Manchester United vs Liverpool had been scheduled for a 4:30pm BST kick-off today, though that was delayed following the fans’ protest on the Old Trafford pitch.

Man Utd vs Liverpoool prediction
United are likely to finish second and the pressure is off them somewhat, but Liverpool desperately need a win to keep their hopes of Champions League qualification alive.
The result largely depends on which United turn up - the sloppy first-half imposters, or the thrilling second-half comeback kings. If they get the usual mix of both, a home win is on the cards - but Liverpool have the quality to leave with all three points.
