|Man Utd vs Liverpool: When can the rearranged game be played?|
Sunday's Premier League clash between Manchester United and Liverpool has been postponed after United fans invaded the Old Trafford pitch in a demonstration against the team owners, the Glazer family.
Now, When will Manchester United vs Liverpool be played following Sunday's postponement due to large-scale protests by United fans against the Glazer family?
Latest Update: The Premier League has confirmed 'the rearrangement of the fixture will be communicated in due course'.
Man United and Liverpool both confirmed that discussions will take place to find a revised date for the game. Both Liverpool and United are also already scheduled to play in the final midweek of the Premier League following the league's announcement that the penultimate round of fixtures would take place across Wednesday, May 18 and Thursday, May 19 so that all clubs can have one game with fans before the end of the season.
But Sunday's postponement poses a considerable scheduling challenge given that United are already due to play every midweek between now and the final day of the Premier League, Sunday, May 23.
The run-in is tight - particularly with United set to play the second leg of their Europa League semi-final against AS Roma in Rome. United, barring a remarkable result in the second leg of their semi-final against Roma, will then end their campaign with the Europa League final on Wednesday, May 26.
Both Liverpool and United are also already scheduled to play in the final midweek of the Premier League following the league's announcement that the penultimate round of fixtures would take place across Wednesday, May 18 and Thursday, May 19 so that all clubs can have one game with fans before the end of the season

Sunday May 23 - Liverpool vs Crystal Palace and Wolves vs Man Utd
Both teams must play their final games of the season on May 23 at 4pm, with that kick-off time set in stone with the rest of the top-flight fixtures that day. United and Liverpool are also both in action on May 19, and games on 8th/9th May respectively make those dates difficult.
Realistically, without moving other fixtures or playing a day before/after another games, four dates - May 3rd, 4th, 14th and 21st - stand out in the current fixture schedule.
Failure to fulfill the fixture Man United vs Liverpool?
The match was initially scheduled to kick off at 4.30pm on Sunday, but demonstrations against Man United's owners the Glazers forced that to be pushed back, and the match was officially called off more than an hour after it was due to begin.
Man United supporters broke into Old Trafford to protest on the pitch, while they also gathered outside the Lowry Hotel where the players are staying, preventing them from getting to the game.
United's only options to play the match therefore appear to be either a hastily-rearranged game on Monday, May 3, or between May 12 and May 19.
However, Liverpool are due to face West Bromwich Albion on Sunday, May 16, meaning that their match against the Baggies would also need to be switched to the preceding midweek in order to fit the Man United vs. Liverpool game in that weekend.
Failure to fulfill the fixture could see Liverpool awarded the victory and three points, which could prove vital in the race for Champions League football next season.
