Both sets of fans gathered outside Elland Road.

Leeds United's fixture against Liverpool on Monday night was highly anticipated, but not because of the football - more because of the shocking plans for the Premier League's 'Big Six' to join the European Super League.

The news sparked protests outside Elland Road before kick-off, with both sets of fans joining in to show their disgust at the potential breakaway league.

Following the protests, YEP posted photos of the crowds gathered outside the stadium.

Trevor Harper - "It's not the players or managers doing this so why are they shouting at them?"
