Manchester United are facing a points deduction, as Premier League and FA rules contradict one another on postponements, the UK Mirror reports.
The Red Devils were set to play Liverpool by 4.30pm this Sunday, but the match was cancelled after shocking scenes at Old Trafford.
Over 200 supporters invaded the pitch after attacking policemen outside the stadium.
With no assurances over safety regarding driving the team bus to the stadium, for United or Liverpool, a decision was made to call the game off.
The Premier League have begun an investigation into the incident and are questioning how over 200 fans got into the stadium.
According to the FA’s rulebook in section 8.3.4, it states that United could be found to have been at fault for the match not going ahead and see Liverpool awarded three points.
It reads: “In the event of a match being abandoned due to the conduct of one Club or its members or supporters the Board has the power to order that the match is not replayed and to award either one or three points to the Club not at fault.
“It cannot levy a financial penalty due to the conduct of a Club.”
However, due to the fact that the police were among those to decide that the game could not go on, the Premier League would state that the decision was not up to United.
