The Premier League faces a logistical nightmare to squeeze the postponed Manchester United versus Liverpool into the schedule during the final weeks of the season.

Sunday's match at Old Trafford became the first Premier League fixture to be called off because of fan protests after United supporters angry at the club's American owners stormed the pitch and clashed with police.

Liverpool are not in action during the following midweek but United have a home game against Leicester City scheduled for 6pm on Wednesday May 12.It's then United who have a blank weekend but Liverpool travel to West Bromwich Albion on Sunday May 16.United's game against Leicester cannot be moved to that weekend in order to free up a midweek slot because the Foxes are playing Chelsea in the FA Cup final on Saturday May 15.One solution could be to move Liverpool's trip to West Brom to the previous midweek and rearrange the fixture for either May 15 or 16.The following midweek sees both teams in action in what is the penultimate set of Premier League games.

Although the precise dates and times haven't yet been confirmed, United host Fulham while Liverpool travel to Burnley.

United head to Wolves as Liverpool host Crystal Palace.

The United vs Liverpool fixture won't be able to rescheduled for the following midweek if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side make it to the UEFA Europa League final on Wednesday May 26.This seems likely given their 6-2 lead over Roma from the first leg at Old Trafford last Thursday and they will meet either Arsenal or Villarreal in the Polish city of Gdansk.

Such a late finish will have a knock-on effect with the United and Liverpool players due to report to their national teams for friendly matches ahead of Euro 2020.For example, England are set to play Austria in a friendly match at the Riverside Stadium in Middlesbrough on Wednesday June 2.Playing the rearranged game so late would eliminate any chance of rest for the likes of Harry Maguire, Marcus Rashford and Jordan Henderson before the Euros.
