Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool should get points if Man Utd protests cause postponement



Manchester United fan protest – Old Trafford

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes any repeat of the Manchester United supporters’ protest which forced their match at Old Trafford to be postponed to 2021 should result in his side being awarded three points.

Thousands of United supporters marched on the ground ahead of last year’s May 2 fixture – which was to be played behind closed doors under Covid protocols – to protest Glazer family ownership.

But when some entered the stadium, the game was postponed and had to be played later in the month.

With further anti-Glazer protests expected ahead of Monday’s match between the two arch-rivals, Klopp said he did not expect to face the same problems but that if for some reason the match does not go ahead , he wanted to win.
