    FAN RAGE

    Manchester United's game with Liverpool has been DELAYED after fuming fans stormed locked-down Old Trafford in a security breach.

    A planned protest against the Red Devils' owners, the Glazers, led to a stand-off with police at the entrance to the hotel just hours before the game.

    Supporters chanted and lit flares next to the team bus as it waited for the squad.

    And a demonstration featuring a large number of fans outside Old Trafford led to hundreds rushing onto the pitch.

    Footage emerged online of fans chanting towards the Sky Sports television studio and cameras set up in the main stand.

    One clip even showed a flare being hurled in the direction of the gantry, while protestors were also seen carrying the United corner flags.

    Authorities managed to usher the crowds off the pitch but amid the chaos the match has been pushed back, but no revised kick-off time has been confirmed.

    NOT ON THE VIRG

    Jurgen Klopp has claimed Holland would be risking Virgil van Dijk's career by rushing him back for the Euros.

    The Dutch defender was ruled out for the season after a horror challenge from Everton's Jordan Pickford ruptured his cruciate knee ligament last October.

    The Liverpool manager said: "I don't want to hold Virgil back but you can't force it as well.

    "You are all long enough in the business to know that if you want to play you have to train before – and proper football training.

    "It takes weeks. Not a week before. You cannot be 10 or 11 months out, train for one week and then play football. That is not possible, it should not be possible.

    "No one is holding Virgil back – I can promise all the people in Holland that we cannot force it, and we will not."

    POCH LUCK

    Mauricio Pochettino's son Maurizio has made his senior debut after featuring in Watford's 2-0 defeat against Brentford.

    The 20-year-old – who joined the Hornets on a permanent deal from Tottenham in January – has impressed since linking up with the academy.

    He scored a sublime left-footed strike on his debut for the Under-23's in a 3-2 win against Ipswich.

    And he then found the back of the net in the victories against Millwall and Swansea.

    His stellar form earned him a place on the bench for the Championship clash against Wycombe in March, where he was an unused substitute.

    But he was rewarded with a first-team debut on Saturday as he replaced Dan Gosling with five minutes remaining at the Brentford Community Stadium.

    LIV-ID

    The race is on to qualify for next season's Champions League with a host of teams scuffling over the few remaining places.

    Manchester City are already in the hat with Manchester United soon to secure their spot, leaving potentially three more spaces in the competition.

    Typically, the top-four of the Premier League all reach the group stage with Leicester and Chelsea well set as things stand.

    The Blues hold a six-point advantage over fifth-placed West Ham and Liverpool are a point further back, with both clubs yet to play this weekend.

    Tottenham and Everton are also in the picture although the Toffees' defeat to Aston Villa left them nine points behind with only five games to go.

    But, as these clubs fight over fourth place, there is still a possibility that it still will not be enough.

    KAI OH MY

    Kai Havertz pleaded with Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel to let him loose on Real Madrid.

    The German scored twice to leave Fulham on the brink of relegation and stake his claim to start Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final second leg against the Spanish giants.

    Havertz hit the target in each half and was unlucky not to grab a hat trick in a performance that a delighted Tuchel hailed as ‘perfect’.

    Havertz said: "I scored very early so it gave me a little bit of confidence, it is always good to score and I'm happy to help the team. I hope I can continue like this on Wednesday.

    "I'm always desperate to start games, I play football. But I know we have a lot of quality players in the team and the other players play well as well. I keep going, train hard and give my best."

    Chelsea emerged with no injuries and a clean sheet from a game which puts them six points clear in the all-important fourth spot.

    SOUMA SIGNING

    Arsenal are reportedly confident of fending off competition from other clubs to prise Yves Bissouma away from Brighton for £30million.

    The North London giants are known to be admirers of the Mali international, who is understood to be a 'huge fan' of the Gunners.

    It was reported in March that Mikel Arteta's side asked to be 'kept informed' of the 24-year-old's situation at the Amex Stadium ahead of a potential summer swoop.

    Liverpool have also been heavily linked with the ex-Lille midfielder as a potential replacement for Barcelona target Georginio Wijnaldum.

    Reds legend John Barnes has urged his former employers to nab Bissouma, who has also attracted interest from Manchester United.

    And according to the Daily Star, Tottenham, Everton and West Ham have all made inquiries to Brighton over a potential move for the player.

    But they state that it is Arsenal that are winning the race to sign Bissouma with the FA Cup holders confident of securing his services.

    MANE MEN

    Jurgen Klopp may be forced to break up the band to kick-start a bid for new success next season.

    The Liverpool boss relied on his Fab Three of Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane to get the goals that brought Champions League glory then a first top-flight title in 30 years.

    Salah, 28, whose deal also expires in two years, has raised doubts about his future. He revealed there has been no discussion on extending his stay beyond that.

    The winger hinted that he was disgruntled earlier this season and he admits: "No one is talking to me about anything, so I can’t say much about that."

    But he insists his focus is still at Anfield, adding: "I said before that I want to win the Premier League again — and I want to win the Champions League again.

    "It’s a great thing to win, I’m just trying to win it again and again and again because part of our job is we need to."

    HAYES HOPE

    Emma Hayes is dreaming of Chelsea sealing a historic Champions League double by becoming kings and queens of club football in Europe.

    And the Kingsmeadow chief hailed Thomas Tuchel, 47, for buying into the winning mentality being encouraged by the Blues.

    Hayes, 44, said: "I had a lovely encounter with Thomas Tuchel, he’s a fantastic guy, really open-minded and progressive coach.

    "There’s a reason why the men’s team are performing like they are and to mirror that success, side by side, how fantastic that would be.

    "I’ve always said this about Chelsea, we always talk about winning in this place, that’s what comes with the territory.

    "We don’t mind the pressure, the expectations, the tags, the titles, whatever comes with it, we just know we’re a club that wants to be in winning positions.

    "It’s great to think that both the men’s and women’s teams have reached these stages.

    "But as I’ll always say we’re about winning things, not just getting here."

    TIM TO SHINE

    Timo Werner became the first Chelsea star in eight years to reach double figures for goals and assists in a debut season.

    A perfectly-weighted through ball to Kai Havertz helped make it 2-0 against Fulham on Saturday as the Blues strengthened their grip on a top-four place.

    It meant a tenth assist on the season for Werner, 25, to go with his 11 goals in all competitions.

    Despite attracting criticism for his slow start at Stamford Bridge, he has become the first Chelsea player to reach the double-figure mark for both feats since Eden Hazard in 2012-13.

    And only four Premier League players had achieved the same so far this season; Son Heung-min, Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes and Harry Kane.

    EURO GLORY

    Kelly Smith is backing Chelsea to steal Arsenal’s limelight by ending their spell of being the only women’s football club from England to conquer Europe.

    And the Gunners’ icon believes 'energiser' Hayes will have her players 'riled up' to knock Bayern Munich out of the Champions League.

    Smith told SunSport: "Emma was a young coach and still learning the trade when she was at Arsenal.

    "But you could see she was hungry, passionate and a real energiser coach who really loved being out on the field.

    "She got massive amounts of experience coaching in America after leaving the club and really developed Chelsea’s game. They are very lucky to have her.

    "I hope they can perform, get to the final and try and take away Arsenal's mantle of being the only team to lift the trophy.

    "And I'm sure Emma's going to get them riled up and ready.

    "It's a huge opportunity for them to get to the final and they're going to believe that they can do it being at home with that home advantage."
