Two fire engines raced to Manchester United’s team hotel hours before scheduled Premier League fixture against Everton at Old Trafford on Saturday.
Fire engines piled up outside the Lowry Hotel in Manchester, which is used by the Red Devils prior to all home matches at Old Trafford.
The United team coach arrived, as usual, just before 1pm with the full squad disembarking and entering the premises to take to their rooms.
It is reported by the Mirror that just one minute later two fire engines raced round the corner and then pulled up outside the main entrance of the hotel.
A series of firefighters are said to have swiftly exited the vehicles in full protective gear, before it emerged that the incident only appeared to be a false alarm.
Unconfirmed reports have since suggested that the alarm may have come from the kitchen of the plush, five-star hotel, causing the alarm to be raised.
Earlier, photographers had captured the likes of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Marcus Rashford and club talisman Bruno Fernandes making their way inside the building.
United face Everton at 8pm on Saturday night and had been planning, as is traditional, to use the hotel’s comfortable facilities to put the final touches to their match plans.
The game is a huge one for Solskjaer’s side, given that title rivals Manchester City and Liverpool face each other at Anfield on Sunday.
Victory over the Toffees would not only once again boost United’s chances, but also peg back an Everton side who have aspirations to penetrate the top four this season.
