Man Utd Vs Liverpool Cancelled: Potential New Dates And Sanctions

Manchester United vs. Liverpool game was postponed following the security breach at Old Trafford.

Thousands were lined up outside Old Trafford and at the Lowry Hotel where Manchester United players were staying, with the Premier League announcing the game would not be played after initially delayed kick-off.

This is a collective decision from the police, both clubs, the Premier League and local authorities.

As said in the Premier League statement, a new fixture date is yet to be decided.

Manchester United are, of course, in action on Thursday night against AS Roma in the second leg of their Europa League semi-final.

Their following two midweek slots are also taken up with Premier League matches against Leicester City and Fulham, ahead of the final day on May 23.

It would be completely unprecedented for the Premier League to directly punish Manchester United as a result of behaviour from their supporters and, therefore, sanctions are extremely unlikely.
