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.”
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.
Jurgen Klopp believes Liverpool should be given the points should their clash against Manchester United at Old Trafford be postponed by protests from fans.

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.
