"Whether that is possible or not, whether the teams can actually get in here, whether they can get away from their hotels to get to the ground, is another matter.” He then added: “What incredible scenes already here at Old Trafford this afternoon, where several hundred protesters have stormed inside the stadium and made their protests felt against the Glazers and their ownership of Manchester United after the European Super League protests of a couple of weeks ago collapsed in spectacular fashion.

The Premier League are saying that the game is still planned to go ahead at 4:30 this afternoon.”
