When will Manchester United v Liverpool be played after Sunday’s postponement due to United fan’s large-scale protests against the Glazer family?
The Premier League have confirmed that “ the rearrangement of the match will be communicated in due course ”.
But Sunday’s postponement poses a considerable scheduling challenge given that United already have to play every midweek by the last day of the Premier League on Sunday 23 May.
United, barring a remarkable result in their semi-final second leg against Roma, will then end their campaign with the Europa League final on Wednesday 26 May.
Liverpool and United are also already scheduled to play in the Premier League’s final midweek following the league’s announcement that the penultimate round of matches will take place on Wednesday May 18 and Thursday May 19 so that all clubs can have a match with fans before the end of the season.
