LONDON: Manchester United will have to play three Premier League games in five days after being rescheduled to face Liverpool on May 13.
United had previously awaited Liverpool’s visit on Sunday, but had to postpone it when hundreds of fans stormed Old Trafford in protest against the club’s owner, the Glazer family.
Fans, furious over Glazer’s involvement in the now -buried European Super League (ESL), acted to damage the Old Trafford pitch, in addition to lighting flares as police blocked them outside the stadium.
The match was rescheduled for May 13 after United traveled to Aston Villa on May 9 and home action against third -placed Leicester on May 11.
United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is certainly not happy with the rescheduling as the season draws to a close.
“Every three of our remaining games at Old Trafford, against Leicester City, Liverpool and Fulham, have been rescheduled, with the first two disrupted due to delays on Sunday,” United said on their website.
