But, before the game at Old Trafford, fans stormed the stadium.
Supporters were protesting over the Glazers’ running of the club, with the Americans under fire in the wake of their failed European Super League plot.

Some made their way onto the turf, with images and clips from social media showing large numbers inside the ground.
The stadium was then placed in lockdown – not for the first time this year.
And it’s now been confirmed the match has been officially postponed.
There was a meeting that took place behind the scenes and, with fans also taking to the Lowry Hotel to vent their feelings, it’s been put on hold.
It emerged before the fixture that United were worried about team buses being targeted, while also fearing a rescheduling of the match.
And United legend Roy Keane believes things are now at a ‘tipping point’, saying: “It’s got to a tipping point now for Man United fans.
“It was peaceful, I think they threw one or two bottles and a couple of flares – I think that was towards Jamie, to be fair, but I think they’ve had enough.
“Enough is enough for these United fans now.
