Man Utd vs Liverpool canceled: new dates and potential penalties


Manchester United’s game against Liverpool has been postponed following the security breach at Old Trafford.

Thousands of people were lined up outside Old Trafford and at the Lowry Hotel where Manchester United players were staying, with the Premier League announcing the game would not be played after the initially delayed kick-off.

It is a collective decision of the police, the two clubs, the Premier League and the local authorities.

As stated in the Premier League press release, a new match date has yet to be decided.

Manchester United are of course in action Thursday night against AS Roma in the return leg of their Europa League semi-final.

The next two midweek spots are also occupied by Premier League games against Leicester City and Fulham, before the final day on May 23.

It would be completely unprecedented for the Premier League to directly punish Manchester United because of the behavior of their supporters and, therefore, sanctions are extremely unlikely.
