Manchester United's home game against Liverpool was marred due to the protestors who turned out in huge numbers for a protest against Glazers. Now, ahead of their EPL 2021 game against Leicester, the Red Devils have reportedly built a huge steel fence in order to keep the protestors away. Security has also been beefed up at Old Trafford. As per a report, the Red Devils have built 10 feet wall of steel at the southeast corner of the stadium. This is the area from where the protestors erupted in the stadium. The fans were quite agitated with Manchester United's participation in the European Super League.

A similar setup has been placed in front of the Sir Alex Ferguson Stand. Additional barriers have been placed and as mentioned above the security had been tightened. The protestors couldn't make way to the locker rooms but they did make way to the pitch. Thankfully the protests began way before the game and the peaceful protests turned out into a wild one.
Here is the picture of the current scenario at Old Trafford:
