Klopp Wants Three Points If Man Utd Protests Cause Fixture Cancellation. Jurgen Klopp wants Liverpool to be given three points if their game against Manchester United is called off due to fan demonstrations on Monday at Old Trafford.

This week, the United Supporter Group ‘The 1958’ declared intentions to protest the “evil ownership” and show the Glazer family that “this time it will not blow over.”

The meeting between the two clubs was postponed due to supporter protests prior to the game in May 2021, when people obtained entrance to the stadium despite the game being planned behind closed doors pursuant to COVID-19 rules, with Liverpool winning the rescheduled fixture 4-2 a week and a half later.

When asked at a press conference on Friday if the team had planned for a similar circumstance on Monday, Klopp responded, “Yeah, we will get on the bus and go home.”

“I really hope it doesn’t happen but if it happens I think we should get the points. We have nothing to do with the situation. If that happens the supporters want the game to not happen then we cannot just rearrange the game again and fit it in somewhere in an incredibly busy [calendar].
“I don’t think and really hope this will not happen. I have no idea what could happen, I don’t think about it. Hopefully, we are fine, we go there, play the game and go home. But if, and I think always in this situation like this, the other team should get the points because they have nothing to do with it. They have prepared for it.”

After two games, neither team has won a game this season, with Liverpool drawing twice and United losing both. Questions have already been raised over whether new Red Devils manager Erik ten Hag will be able to effectively implement his pressing style, and Klopp refused to comment on whether United’s squad will be capable of adapting.

He did, however, provide some insight into his own situation when he came to Liverpool in October 2015, mentioning his first game in charge – a goalless draw against Tottenham – as an example.

“I loved our first game,” he reminisced. “We had two days. It was a Saturday game so the players came back from internationals on Wednesday, and we had Thursday, and Friday, not really to train, to recover and then to have one session.
“For the first impression of an idea, it was outstanding. I still can see Adam Lallana flying around and pressing everybody who had a different shirt, so that was really cool. A cool first sign for me, yeah, but that’s it.”
