UEFA may move Manchester United-Liverpool Europa kickoff time

UEFA is considering Trafford Council's request to move the St Patrick's Day Europa League clash between Manchester United and Liverpool back from its scheduled 6 p.m. kick-off.

Last week's round-of-16 draw threw up a mouthwatering clash between the bitter rivals -- the first time they have faced one another in continental competition.

The first leg takes place at Anfield at 8.05 p.m. on March 10, but the return fixture, on March 17, is slated for an earlier start.

Rivals Manchester United and Liverpool have never faced each other in Europe before.

It is understood that the scheduled timing of the St Patrick's Day fixture has led Trafford Council's safety advisory board to contact UEFA with a request that it be put back.

UEFA told Press Association Sport it had received the council's letter on the matter and was currently evaluating the situation.

United are also reportedly in favour of moving the tie from 6pm, and Trafford Council is expected to make a statement on Wednesday afternoon.
