Manchester United can be deducted for points after the Liverpool clash broke off

A few hundred home fans were given access to the stadium’s pitch and the match was eventually canceled – a joint decision by both Liverpool, the Red Devils and the GM police.

Daily Mail report United could get a points deduction after the clash could not be played as planned.
