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.

United will feel frustrated at the inconvenience and the rescheduling is a boost for Liverpool and their top four hunt.
