Manchester United’s supporters have returned to the streets on Thursday evening, in a bid to make their voices heard once more.
Red Devils vs Reds
Thursday’s marquee fixture is of course due to play out at Old Trafford shortly.
The matchup in question will (hopefully) see Manchester United play host to Liverpool, in a Premier League showdown.
Proceedings between the historic rivals were rearranged to take place tonight, after intense protests at Old Trafford two weeks ago eventually resulted in the fixture being postponed.
It is visitors Liverpool who, ahead of the clash, have it all to play for, with Jurgen Klopp’s men still in the thick of the Premier League’s battle for European football.
Hosts United, on the other hand, have already locked up a Champions League spot for next season, sitting pretty in 2nd in the English top-flight.
Reds held up
And, if the latest actions on the part of the Red Devils’ faithful are anything to go by, it appears fears are not exactly high regarding the possibility of their side failing to add to their advantage over 3rd-placed Chelsea.
This comes with photos and videos having spread across social media this evening, highlighting the pre-match scenes in and around Old Trafford.
Many United supporters have taken to the Theatre of Dreams itself, to make clear once again their disgust with the club’s Glazer owners, following their role in the proposed European Super League breakaway:

Others, though, have thrown tonight’s action, as a whole, somewhat up in the air.
The Liverpool team coach headed for Old Trafford has been blocked, with the vehicle’s tyres having even been deflated:
