Liverpool football club has released a statement on liverpoolfc.com expressing its support for the decision to postpone the tie with Manchester United.

The clash had initially been delayed beyond the 4:30 PM kickoff, with a postponement later announced following the demonstrations that occurred at Old Trafford.

Liverpool Football Club was in full agreement with the decision to postpone today’s fixture as a result of ongoing events at Old Trafford and the surrounding area,” the club said.

It’s as of yet unclear whether the meeting between the two Premier League outfits will be moved to the near future.

With a great deal hanging in the balance, as Manchester City could have been crowned champions had Liverpool secured all three points in Manchester, there will undoubtedly be a certain degree of keenness to get the fixture underway as soon as possible.

Considering the impending nature of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side’s second-leg clash with Roma in the Europa League, however, it’s difficult to see the match being moved to the 4th or 5th if a slot can’t be arranged for tomorrow.

As such, we wouldn’t be surprised to see the tie delayed till mid-May potentially, particularly given the Red Devils’ congested fixture schedule.
