LIVERPOOL COULD HAVE ASKED FOR WALKOVER AGAINST MANCHESTER UNITED

Liverpool will not ask the FA to award them the game, after their visit to Old Trafford last Sunday was called off due to safety worries.

Mirror quoting  the rules,  remarked that the governing body CAN declare the fixture will not be replayed at a later date, and instead award the three points to the Reds, if they decide it was “abandoned due to the conduct of one Club or its supporters”.

But the Anfield club have no interest in pursuing such an outcome, and instead will work with Manchester United  to find a date for the fixture to be completed.

That will prove tricky, with the Manchester club involved in a Europa League semi final this week. They also have the following two midweek slots taken up with Premier League fixtures against Leicester and Fulham.

But United do have a free date on the weekend of May 15, when Liverpool are due to play West Brom on the 16th.
