Manchester United will face an investigation from the FA over their failure to manage Sunday's anti-Glazer protest, despite knowing about the event for nine days.

Before the scheduled game against Liverpool, thousands of United fans flocked to Old Trafford to voice their frustration towards the club's owners, the Glazers, with some even managing to break into the stadium to protest on the pitch, and after a few hours of chaos it was decided that the Liverpool fixture could not be played.

Footage also emerged appearing to show a police officer punching a Manchester United fan while they lay on the ground being arrested.

United's Europa League semi-final with Roma means it cannot be played this week, while Premier League matches mean the Red Devils are booked up both at the weekend and on May 12 as well.

The Premier League are now in the unenviable position of trying to reschedule the fixture.

While United were obviously powerless to prevent that sort of behaviour, The Telegraph note that they will still face questions over their handling of the event as a whole as club officials had nine days to prepare an adequate response.

Thousands of fans swarmed the Emirates recently, and there are concerns that United should have expected that level of unrest in a protest which had been publicly planned for over a week.
