Manchester Utd vs Liverpool rescheduled fixture announced

Manchester United have confirmed their match against Liverpool, originally scheduled for Sunday, has been rearranged for May 13.

The match was postponed after angry fans stormed Old Trafford in protest of the Glazer family’s continued ownership and their plans to involve the team in the now-aborted Super League.

With the fixture moved to May 13, United will now face the prospect of three league games within five days.

United were originally scheduled to face Leicester City on May 12 but in order to accommodate the rearranged match against Liverpool, the game against the Foxes was moved back to May 11.

That still leaves United facing the prospect of two league matches in a span of three days.

Combined with matches this Thursday against Roma and Sunday against Aston Villa, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will have four matches in the span of one week.

For the Red Devils, it will be the first time in 29 years they will face three league games in five days.

Fans turned up at Old Trafford well ahead of kick-off on Sunday to protest against the Glazer family.

Some protesters managed to push down barriers to force their way into the ground and made their way onto the pitch.

Police struggled to gain control of the situation before the crowds were eventually dispersed.

Kick-off of the game was originally delayed before United released a statement saying: “Following discussion between police, the Premier League, Trafford Council and the clubs, our match against Liverpool has been postponed due to safety and security considerations around the protest today.”
