Liverpool's Team Bus Blocked And Tyres Punctured Ahead Of Manchester United Game

Liverpool's official team bus has been blocked from arriving at Old Trafford.

Ahead of tonight's rearranged game against Manchester United, fans are once again protesting and showing their disdain for the Glazer family.

Protests caused the initial fixture to be called off after fans stormed into the stadium and onto the pitch. And there are fears the same could happen again tonight.

Although security and police presence has been ramped up, pictures have emerged showing cars blocking the Liverpool coach on a side street near the hotel they have been based at.

Daniel Taylor from The Athletic was at the scene and said the tyres on the vehicle were punctured by protesting United supporters.

After the stoppage, it was reported that police were present and ensured that cars were moved and the road was cleared.

Eventually, with the tyre problem fixed, the coach started moving again. Jurgen Klopp and his side were not on this boss and arrived safely at the ground ahead of the 8.15pm kick-off.

United went to great lengths to ensure they avoided a repeat scenario from 2 May, with the players arriving at the stadium SIX hours early and driving their own cars as opposed to being transported from the Lowry Hotel.

A decoy bus was also deployed in an attempt to dupe fans hoping to disrupt the fixture for a second time.
