Manchester United fans managed to postpone Sunday’s Premier League game against Liverpool.

The fans stormed Old Trafford more than two hours before kick-off and breached security.

The teams didn’t even make it to the ground, and while the police finally managed to disperse the supporters, the game was abandoned.

Thousands of fans took part in the largely peaceful protest. We rounded up 40 pictures from the afternoon.

Supporters release torches inside and outside of Old Trafford, mixing green and gold with red.

Fans traveled from across the country to attend the protests. Fans were frustrated with the Glazer property, which has spiraled the club into debt since 2005.

Later in the day there were some arguments between police and supporters as officers tried to disperse the large crowd.

Postponing the game was a statement that made news around the world. United v Liverpool was a game that was meant to be broadcast worldwide.
