Manchester United’s game against Liverpool has now been postponed.

Fans protesting against the Glazers accessed the stadium at 2pm and made it onto the pitch and into the stands.

The match was due to kick off at 4.30pm.

An official United statement read: “Following discussion between the 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.”

There is no word just yet on whether the game will be moved, or if United will forfeit the fixture.

The Premier League published teamsheets just before 4pm, but the players did not even make it to the stadium.

United’s players are due to travel to Italy this week for a Europa League semi-final second leg against Roma.
