Manchester United may force Liverpool to wait for planning
Posted On May 3, 2021
Liverpool may be forced to wait for their Premier League match against Manchester United at Old Trafford to be rescheduled.
Due to fan protests against the club’s ownership, the match was canceled before the players left their hotels.
The problem with rearranging the fixture is United’s busy calendar for the next few weeks.
As the Red Devils are still competing in the Europa League, their potential slots are already occupied by Roma in the middle of the week and the final in Gdansk – the latter of which is in pencil.

That means United have two games a week until the end of the Premier League season, posing a reshuffle problem.
The first window of opportunity could be tomorrow (May 3) – but it will remove one of Manc’s rest days ahead of their semi-final second leg with Roma and must be organized quickly.
Another opportunity comes between the last two league games of the season (May 21), but that only means a rest day for both sides ahead of the final game week.
And finally, the clash could be played after the “end” of the season, but that presents a different topic, as the final matches this period are scheduled to host fans for the first time since December.
