Man United vs Liverpool kick-off to be delayed as video emerges of fan smashing camera on Old Trafford pitch

Man United vs Liverpool kick-off to be delayed as video emerges of fan smashing camera on Old Trafford pitch

Man United vs Liverpool

This weekend’s marquee Premier League is set to play out on Sunday evening.

Manchester United will play host to Liverpool, in a huge game for the latter.

United begin the weekend’s action sitting 2nd, with a 12-point advantage over 5th – meaning their spot in next season’s Champions League is already all but secured.

Liverpool, on the other hand, have it all to play for, and cannot afford to drop any points across their final five league outings this term.

At present, the Reds sit 6th in the English top-flight, four points adrift of 4th-placed Chelsea. Jurgen Klopp’s side failed to win either of their previous two Premier League games, though, with the form of Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino becoming a real concern.

This evening’s clash, however, will not be going ahead as scheduled.

This comes after a large group of Man United fans, as part of a protest against their owners, somehow made their way onto the Old Trafford pitch, as the two squads remain in their team hotels:

In turn, as confirmed a short time ago, kick-off will be delayed on Sunday, with a new time yet to be provided:

The first group of fans to have made their way onto the Old Trafford pitch did eventually disperse.

However, a second set of supporters then came flooding in.

And, unfortunately, the protests have since taken something of a violent turn, with one man having been spotted inside Old Trafford smashing up a camera:

A flare was also thrown at police:

The stadium is now said to be on lockdown, less than an hour prior to the game’s original kick-off time of 4:30 PM UK time:
