The supporters, who were in their hundreds prevented their squad from leaving the Lowry Hotel ahead of the tie.

United faithful had initially gathered en masse outside Old Trafford before they forced their way into the facility.

Footages from the protests showed the protesters on the pitch where they lit off flares and they eventually gained entrance unto the pitch.

According to Mirror, Liverpool players were able to gain entrance into the facility without being detected. The outlet wrote:
