United v Liverpool: Will now kick-off at the later time of 8:05pm

The second leg of Manchester United’s Europa League last-16 tie against Liverpool on March 17 will kick off at the later time of 8:05pm, UEFA has confirmed.

Both United and Trafford Council had asked UEFA to consider moving the game from its original time slot of 6pm, citing safety fears.

Large crowds are expected in and around the city for the St Patrick’s Day clash between the north-west rivals.

The first leg at Anfield on March 10 will also kick off at 8:05pm, as was originally scheduled.
