On Sunday Man Utd were suppose to host Liverpool in the Premier League, however, the match had to be postponed over inadequate security.

This comes after over 200 Man Utd fans gained access to the stadium and demanded that the club owner, the Glazer family should be removed.

This single action from the protesters could see Man Utd lose 3 points to Liverpool, according to the Mirror UK.

According to the FA’s rulebook in section 8.3.4, it states that Manchester United could be found to have been at fault for the match not going ahead and see Liverpool awarded three points.

It reads: “In the event of a match being abandoned due to the conduct of one Club or its members or supporters the Board has the power to order that the match is not replayed and to award either one or three points to the Club not at fault.

”It cannot levy a financial penalty due to the conduct of a Club.”

The report, however, added that due to the fact that the police were among those who took the decision that the match could not go on, the Premier League would state that the decision was not up to the Red Devils.
