Manchester United and Liverpool were due to face each other at Old Trafford on Sunday evening, with a 4:30 pm kick-off. However, the game didn’t go as planned, as a large number of supporters stormed the stadium to protest against the ownership of the club, as they targeted their frustration at the Glazers.
The FA may be faced with a challenge for a new date for the rescheduled fixture, as Manchester United will have a busy schedule until the end of the season.
This midweek is gone due to Manchester United’s involvement in the Europa League. United and Liverpool both have Premier League games against Aston Villa and Southampton respectively, on the weekend of May 8th and 9th.
Afterwards, Manchester United have a midweek Premier League game against Leicester City on May 12, while Liverpool are busy on the weekend of May 15 and 16th, with an away game against West Brom.
United and Liverpool are both due to be in action the following midweek, against Fulham and Burnley respectively.
The FA will be forced to find a suitable date for the clash, and it will have to come before May 23, the final day of the season, as all final games will be played concurrently.
The best option could be for Liverpool to visit West Brom on Wednesday May 12 – four days earlier than currently planned – and then the clash with United can be played on Sunday May 16.
