The Manchester side were one of six Premier League clubs to announce they were joining a break-away European Super League last Sunday evening but the plans soon fell flat on their face after almost universal condemnation.

Around 20 Red Devils fans then breached security and entered the club's Carrington training ground on Thursday to unfurl banners protesting about the club's Glazer family ownership.

Those protests then continued shortly before Sunday's clash against the Whites as a plane flew over Elland Road with the message '2BN STOLEN #GLAZERSOUT'.
