Manchester United and Leeds fans fight ahead of Premier League opener

Fans are back in the Premier League.

Manchester United and Leeds United fans were filmed fighting in Manchester city centre ahead of their teams’ Premier League opener on Saturday.

In the video below, taken from inside a cafe on Deansgate, scores of men can be seen running around a corner with some throwing objects and punches.

One man can be seen attacking somebody with a bin while another throws a chair.

There was just one cop attempting to prevent the mass brawl, although sirens could be heard in the background.

In another video, a group of Leeds fans can be seen trying to force their way into the Piccadilly Tavern.

Cops quickly arrived on the scene and the group dispersed.

Five people were arrested on suspicion of public order offences.
