The match will be held at Old Trafford and the club has issued a statement for the attendees.

The management has also kept in mind the norms of social distancing amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Any reckless or anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated. As one might recall, a few days ago, people had turned out in numbers to protest against the Glazers, the owners of the club. The protest was against Manchester United's participation in the European Super League, which is a breakaway tournament for Champions League. The fans had entered the pitch at Old Trafford and the game between Manchester United and Liverpool had to be rescheduled.
We’re looking forward to welcoming a limited number of supporters back to Old Trafford tomorrow.
