Thousands of Manchester United supporters came out enmasse to protest against the ownership of the Glazers family ahead of the game against Liverpool.

The protest took a different turn as some protesters gained entrance into the Old Trafford pitch, and there was also reported incident of face off between some supporters and the police.

Reports now claim that six police officers were injured from the incident, and one arrest was made.

“Six police officer injuries have been reported so far with one officer receiving a fractured eye socket, requiring medical treatment, and another sustained a wound to his face, following bottles and cans being thrown from the crowd,” a GMP statement reads.

“A third officer was dragged and kicked. The officer who attended hospital has since been discharged.

“A 28-year old man has been arrested as a consequence of this investigation and all available evidence is being urgently reviewed to identify both the organisers of this protest and those responsible for the officer assaults.”
