Man Utd supporters threaten boycott of Liverpool clash at Old Trafford

Manchester United supporters are threatening to boycott the clash with Liverpool at Old Trafford.

The August 22 meeting looks poised to be a difficult match for United following their opening match home defeat to Brighton.

The hashtag #EmptyOldTrafford has been circulating on social media as supporters look to protest against the Glazers.

Supporters are trying to plan a boycott which will see Old Trafford seats left empty for the crunch home clash against rivals Liverpool.

One wrote: "Enough is enough. #EmptyOldTrafford #GlazersOut #GlazersSellUnited"

Another said: "If you love Manchester United then stay out of Old Trafford. It is worth it lads #GlazersSellManUtd #EmptyOldTrafford"

The news comes just 15 months after the match between the two at the Theatre of Dreams was abandoned.
