Manchester United’s game with Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon may be delayed after some individuals broke into the stadium and entered the pitch, with the team coach also being delayed from leaving the Lowry Hotel in the city centre.
At just past 2pm around 200 individual are believed to have made their way into the stadium, some carrying flares, with a corner flag being taken from the pitch and paraded outside. Images and videos of the protest also showed one person hanging off the crossbar of a goal.
Supporter unrest at the Glazers’ ownership has been further heightened after the club’s planned membership of the now defunct European Super League.
Pictures showed the coach due to take Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his squad to Old Trafford halted outside the Lowry with banks of uniformed police surrounding it. They still had not left 90 minutes before the 4.30pm kick-off in line with Premier League protocols, with Liverpool’s squad also remaining at their hotel after advice from the police.https://5c7754ed8e3e400ebde33d04cedaa09e.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-38/html/container.html?n=0

If United lose to Liverpool then Manchester City will be crowned champions after their victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday.
