Liverpool Football Club have released a statement on liverpoolfc.com expressing its support for the decision to suspend ties with Manchester United.
The collision had originally been delayed beyond the kickoff at. 16.30, with a later postponement after the demonstrations at Old Trafford.
““Liverpool Football Club fully agreed with the decision to postpone today’s match due to ongoing events at Old Trafford and the surrounding area.” said the club.
“It is our position that public safety should be the most important factor in such a decision, as the ability to create a safe environment for participants, staff and officials is a particular priority.
“It was clearly not possible for this to be guaranteed today due to a situation that was escalating rapidly.
“We will continue to have a dialogue with Manchester United, the Premier League and the local authorities to find a suitable date to restructure.
“As soon as we have this information, we will update our followers accordingly.”

It is still unclear whether the meeting between the two Premier League clothes will be moved to the near future.
With quite a bit hanging in balance, as Manchester City could have been crowned champions if Liverpool had secured all three points in Manchester, there will undoubtedly be some degree of openness to get the match started as soon as possible.
However, given the impending nature of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s second match with Roma in the Europa League, it is difficult to see the match being moved to 4th or 5th if a place cannot be arranged for tomorrow.
As such, we would not be surprised to see a draw delayed until mid-May potentially, especially given the Red Devils’ congested schedule.
