Manchester United fans broke into Old Trafford and protested on the pitch

Manchester United fans have broken into Old Trafford and are protesting on the pitch after resuming their fight against the Glazer family’s ownership ahead of Sunday’s clash with Liverpool.

Hundreds of fans got into the stadium ahead of the behind-closed-doors Premier League contest, shown live on Sky Sports Premier League.

Fans also gathered outside the team’s hotel – The Lowry Hotel in Manchester, where the United team are staying before the game – ahead of Sunday’s match at Old Trafford, where 10,000 are expected to congregate.

It is understood the United squad have not left the hotel amid ongoing fan protests, while match referee Michael Oliver has been turned away from the stadium.

The Premier League are still planning on the game going ahead as planned, despite the disruption caused by the demonstrations, with the coronavirus bubble still intact as fans have not accessed the dressing rooms.

There will, however, have to be a sweep of the stadium once the situation is under control.

Many United supporters are still angry and upset over their club’s role as one of the founder members of the proposed breakaway European Super League.

The plans added to years of discontent and protests from supporters following the controversial takeover by the Glazers in 2005.

United’s game against Liverpool is scheduled to start at 4.30pm, live on Sky Sports. If United lose the match then Manchester City will be crowned champions with four games to go.
