Manchester United could face a points deduction from the Premier League after fans’ protests spilt into the stadium and onto the pitch, causing the highly-anticipated clash with Liverpool to be postponed.

According to the Daily Mail, both the Premier League and the Football Association are investigating the mass protests around Old Trafford last weekend and are speaking with United and local police to ascertain exactly what happened and who was responsible.

Under Premier League rules, points can be deducted from a team when a club fails to ensure the safety of its players and staff, including entry and exit from the stadium.

Should Manchester United be found responsible for failing to contain the mass protests, they could suffer a deduction from the Premier League.

The FA can also impose big fines and compensation for Liverpool for its costs during the day, and in extreme circumstances implement ground closures and suspensions from competitions – although neither are expected to be considered on this occasion.

The protests against the ownership of the club were exacerbated recently by the Glazers’ decision to take part in the formation of the European Super League and the protests were organised for outside the ground on Sunday ahead of the clash with Liverpool.

However, with the protests becoming unmanageable, the players were held back in their hotels by police as representatives of both United and Liverpool came together and decided that for safety reasons, the game could not go ahead.

Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel called out the protesters as “idiots and troublemakers” as he defended the Glazers over their ownership of the club.

He told CBS Sports: “I don’t think the die-hard fans were the ones inside the stadium. I think they are idiots, troublemakers. None of them will remember the good times. Some of them weren’t even born when the Glazers took over the club.

“The die-hard fans, the true fans, keep voicing your opinions, but keep it at a proper level. Don’t be stupid about it. Don’t demand something which is unrealistic. Keep up the pressure, keep up the ideas.

“What we’ve learned from the last two weeks is, if we stand together and we show our opposition to ideas that we don’t agree with, as a massive group, it does have an effect. I think football, not Manchester United, is at a crossroads now.

“There is this incredible opportunity now to change direction. Something that I think it has needed for a long, long, long time.”
