Last Sunday's scheduled clash between the two most decorated sides in English football was called off after United fans protesting the ownership of the Glazer family prevented their players from leaving the Lowry Hotel pre-match and also stormed the stadium.

The limited wriggle room left in the schedule means the game will now come after United travel to Aston Villa on May 9 and host Leicester City on May 11.

Liverpool could argue they have been dealt a similarly punishing hand, with three games in six days – all of which are away from home – as they battle to snatch a top-four spot.

The Premier League has moved its penultimate round of fixtures to midweek slots on May 18 and 19 to allow fans to attend, in line with the next stage of coronavirus restrictions being lifted.

Manchester United remaining fixtures 2020-21
Roma (a) - Europa League, May 6
Aston Villa (a) - Premier League, May 9
Leicester (h) - Premier League, May 11
Liverpool (h) - Premier League, May 13
Fulham (h) - Premier League, May 18
Wolves (a) - Premier League, May 23
Possible Europa League final, May 26

Liverpool remaining fixtures 2020-21
Southampton (h) – Premier League, May 8
Man Utd (a) – Premier League, May 13
West Brom (a) – Premier League, May 16
Burnley (a) – Premier League, May 19
Crystal Palace (h) – Premier League, May 23
