Man Utd vs Liverpool LIVE: United fans INVADE PITCH and block team hotel in anti-Glazer protests – latest updates

MANCHESTER UNITED are supposed to be taking on Liverpool today needing to avoid defeat to prevent rivals Man City winning the title.

But the game has been put into doubt by ferocious protests from the Red Devils faithful against owners the Glazer family.

United fans were seen storming the Old Trafford pitch and blocking the team bus at the hotel ahead of the derby match.

The Glazers, who were already unpopular, invoked fury among the Old Trafford faithful by signing the club up to the doomed European Super League project.

Should the game be played, Liverpool need a victory to boost their hopes of Champions League football next season.

    IN JEOPARDY

    MANCHESTER UNITED's Premier League clash with bitter Liverpool is in doubt after furious Red Devils fans STORMED Old Trafford this afternoon.

    Furious fans turned up to the Theatre of Dreams in their droves to protest the Glazers' ownership of the club, which once again came under scrutiny after the club's attempt to join the European Super League last month.

    And somehow, they managed to get past security and make their way on to the Turf.

    Hundreds of the Old Trafford faithful stormed the pitch and set off flares, some of which were thrown into the stand.

    There's currently no sign of security or police moving on the angry mob any time soon.

    By the looks of it, this afternoon's game against the Reds will likely be called off.
