MANCHESTER UNITED'S postponed clash with Liverpool will be played on Thursday May 13. And it means United will now have to play twice in just 48 hours - and THREE times in just five days. Last Sunday's clash between Man Utd and Liverpool was postponed in the 11th hour after furious protests against club owners the Glazers outside the Lowry Hotel and at Old Trafford. It had been thought Liverpool ’s trip to West Brom would be brought forward to allow the Old Trafford clash of the North-West giants to go back to its initial Sunday afternoon slot on May 16. Instead, United’s game with Leicester has been shunted forward 24 hours to Tuesday May 11 with a 6pm kick-off. And the match with Liverpool will now start at 8.15pm on May 13. United will feel frustrated at the inconvenience and the rescheduling is a boost for Liverpool and their top four hunt.
