‘It’s worth a reminder that successful prosecution can lead to a two-year football banning order.’

Officers will remain in the city for the rest of Saturday to keep disruption to a minimum, the force added.

Today is the first time in 17 months that the Theatre of Dreams will be at full capacity, hosting some 75,000 fans.

But scenes of brawls have put a dampener on the otherwise celebratory return of the Premier League. 

It comes after police on Friday pleaded with fans to behave responsibly, announcing that 200 officers would be on duty across Manchester.    

Chief superintendent Stuart Ellison, Greater Manchester Police’s gold commander for public order operations, said: ‘It feels like a long time since we last had capacity crowds, but we have worked on hundreds of events in the past and our priority this weekend remains the same. 

‘The Premier League starts with Manchester hosting the biggest game of the weekend, 70,000 fans returning to Old Trafford to see Manchester United hosting Leeds United.

‘That’s just one of four matches on our patch on Saturday afternoon.

‘Our officers are working extended hours this weekend to help keep the public safe. All that we ask is that you behave responsibly so everyone can enjoy themselves.’
