United's usual pre-match routine was changed ahead of the rearranged Premier League game to ensure the match could kick-off on time at 8:15pm. The original fixture on Sunday, May 2, was postponed due to 'safety concerns' after mass protests outside Old Trafford against the Glazer family's ownership of the club. Thousands of fans descended upon Old Trafford for the largely peaceful protest, though there were some clashes with the police.

"Difficult game," Fernandes added when asked what he expected from the match. "As we know it's always a good fight [between] these two clubs. We know what this game means for them and we know also what this game means for us. "We want to win the game for ourselves, for the fans, for everyone. So it'll be a big game like always and I hope everyone can enjoy it, but at the end us more than them."
