Furious fans flock to Man Utd, Chelsea and Prem Big Six stadiums for second day of protests over European Super League
PLANS to create a new European Super League involving only the game's richest clubs led to a second day of furious fan protests.
Premier League teams involved in the proposals have faced a huge backlash from their own faithful.
On Tuesday, a number of supporters turned up on their club's doorstep to demand they backtrack from the controversial plot.
Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Tottenham, Arsenal and Liverpool have signed up to the ESL alongside three Spanish and three Italian teams.
The proposals will take clubs out of the Champions League and into a new closed-shop setup, where teams qualify regardless of their performance.
Uefa, Fifa, the UK Government and the Premier League are among the bodies to threaten the plotters with significant punishment, including throwing them out of this year's competitions.
While European football's governing body and 14 other top-flight English clubs met on Tuesday, protests continued.
Outside Liverpool's home of Anfield, banners reading 'FSG OUT' and 'SUPER GREED' were hung up to condemn the club's owners.
The Reds' home will no longer feature fan banners across the empty seats after supporters' groups demanded they be removed.
Blues fans are set to appear en masse outside their home to demonstrate before Tuesday's clash with Brighton, echoing Monday's display before Leeds' draw with Liverpool.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, supporters have been largely unable to make their feelings known in person with games played behind closed doors.
The statue of Thierry Henry at Emirates Stadium was handed a cardboard message that read: "Give us our Arsenal back."

At Old Trafford, Manchester United fans put up a banner stating: "We adored you and you sold our souls. RIP MUFC 1878-2021."
One placard attached to the gates at Manchester City's Etihad Stadium simply read 'Shame on you' alongside two club scarves.
The protests were not limited to England with a message from Barcelona fans posted onto the Camp Nou.
Their statement read: "FCB is our life, not your toy. Super League, NO."
