Talks were ongoing following the decision to postpone the Old Trafford tie due to protests that moved from outside into the stadium, with violent scenes unfolding in Manchester.
Safety concerns, along with COVID-19 protocols, forced the match to be rearranged, with Liverpool returning to Merseyside from their team hotel as representatives held discussions.
The Premier League and local authorities were also involved, with the fixture list both domestic and in Europe under consideration along with the likelihood of further protests on a rescheduled date.
Liverpool and United have now agreed to play the fixture on Thursday, May 13, with kickoff set for 8.15pm at Old Trafford.
Liverpool’s remaining fixtures:
- Southampton (H) – Sat, 8 May, 8.15pm
- Man United (A) – Thurs, 13 May, 8.15pm
- West Brom (A) – Sun, 16 May, 4.30pm
- Burnley (A) – Weds, 19 May, 8.15pm
- Crystal Palace (H) – Sun, 23 May, 4pm
Neither side will see this rearranged date as ideal, but with just three weeks remaining in the English top flight, a compromise was required.
