Manchester United will conduct a review into the security operation for Sunday's protest at Old Trafford which ended with the postponement of the game against Liverpool.

Fans twice broke into the ground and got onto the pitch, while violent clashes outside between the 1,000-strong demonstration and police left two officers injured.

United and the security company they employ, Controlled Group Solutions, face questions over their handling of the situation considering up to 10,000 demonstrators were expected.

United declined to comment on whether a review will take place, but it's understood the club will look into what happened and how it got out of hand.

Club sources say it was the intention to be non-confrontational, in keeping with a peaceful protest, and that installing barricades and more heavily armoured police from the start would only have risked inflaming the situation.

A United statement read: 'Following discussion between the police, the Premier League, Trafford Council and the clubs, our match against Liverpool has been postponed due to safety and security considerations around the protest.

'Our fans are passionate about Manchester United, and we completely acknowledge the right to free expression and peaceful protest.
