The Premier League are reportedly now in the unenviable position of trying to reschedule the fixture.
No official decision has been made, but if you look at the calendar, there are very few dates on which this game could be safely played.
United’s Europa League semi-final with Roma means it cannot be played this week, while Premier League matches mean the Red Devils are booked up both at the weekend and on May 12 as well. The weekend of May 15 is also out the window as Liverpool are scheduled to face West Brom.
Both teams are then in action on May 19 and May 23 to bring the season to a close, and United are also expected to feature in the Europa League final on May 26 (assuming Roma cannot overturn a 6-2 deficit). With the European Championship starting early in June, there may not be time to play it after the season ends either.
