Manchester United’s Premier League game against Liverpool has been formally postponed.
The game, which was initially set for a 4.30pm kick off on Sunday afternoon, was delayed after the protests by United fans outside Old Trafford and at the Lowry Hotel where the team are based before home matches.
Anti-Glazer protests were planned for before the game outside the ground, with an estimated 10,000 turning up and displaying placards, banners and chanting against the club’s American owners.
Some fans gained access to the stadium and even invaded the pitch, as the vast majority of the protests went peacefully, until some clashes with police forced the authorities to clear the area around Old Trafford.
There were then discussions over whether to move the kick off time to later on Sunday evening, or to postpone for another day — the latter of which was confirmed at around 5.40pm on Sunday.
