Manchester United fans have broken into Old Trafford to protest against their owners -the Glazer family - before their Premier League game with Liverpool.

They also blocked the team's bus from leaving their hotel, The Lowry Hotel in Manchester.

The game is expected to kick-off at 4.30pm and if Liverpool win Manchester City will be this season's champions.

Many United supporters are still angry and upset over their club's role as one of the founder members of the proposed breakaway European Super League last month.

United owner Joel Glazer, who was a Super League vice-chairman when the announcement was made, apologised in an open letter to the club's fans after they were forced to abandon their plans.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said during the week that fans have a right to voice their anger.

It's estimated 10,000 in total turned up to the planned protest outside Old Trafford on Sunday.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, former United captain Gary Neville says it's time for the Glazer family to go. 

"This stadium [Old Trafford], if you go behind the scenes, it's rusting and rotting.

"If you look at the training ground, it's probably now not even in the top five in this country.

"They haven't got to a Champions League semi-final for 10 years and we haven't won a league here at manchester United for eight years."
