#OYINBOTORCHLIGHT – LIVERPOOL, MAN UNITED WARN FANS AHEAD OF LEAGUE CLASH
Liverpool and Manchester United have warned fans that they will be removed from Anfield and could face criminal charges if found engaging in “offensive or discriminatory behaviour” in Monday’s Premier League clash.
The English clubs were fined by UEFA earlier this year over a variety of charges, including illicit chanting, during their Europa League last-16 tie in March. The clubs were fined 40,000 euros (£36723.84) each for the chants by their fans.
Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp expects Monday’s clash to be a thriller because of the typically fevered atmosphere during the encounters. Liverpool knocked United out of the Europa League last season but have not beaten them in domestic competition since March 2014.
Liverpool, who sit fourth in the league standings, are three points ahead of United.
