(AFP) - Manchester United and Liverpool have both been charged by Uefa following crowd trouble at their Europa League clash at Old Trafford, the governing body announced on Friday.
Five men were reportedly arrested following the disturbances on Thursday which saw rival fans fighting in the stands and flares and objects thrown.
United have been charged over crowd disturbances, the throwing of objects and stairways being blocked. Liverpool have been charged over illicit chants, setting off fireworks, throwing of objects, crowd disturbances and arriving late for kick-off.
Liverpool knocked Manchester United out of the second-tier European competition after their last-16 second leg ended 1-1. That gave Liverpool a 3-1 victory on aggregate and a place in Friday's quarter-final draw.
