supporters have insisted that further action is planned after their protests and storming of Old Trafford on Sunday caused the Premier League match against Liverpool to be postponed. 

The protests were targeted at the unpopular American owners, the Glazers, and organisers have emphasised Sunday's events were the beginning of a sustained long-term campaign to pressure the owners into leaving the club.

Fans stated they felt 'sidelined and ignored' after United were criticised for their role in trying to launch the reviled European Super League, although fan opposition to the Glazers has long predated the breakaway competition.

The Red Devils have stepped up their security protocols at the stadium after around 200 demonstrators burst into Old Trafford, lit flares, threw bottles and clashed with police in controversial scenes, although much of the protest was peaceful.

There are legitimate fears of more protests in upcoming home fixtures, for example against Leicester on May 12 and Fulham a week later, plus the rearranged clash with fierce rivals Liverpool, and it is understood planning for further action is underway.
