Fire engines called to Manchester United team hotel ahead of Everton clash

Manchester United v Southampton: Match in pictures

Manchester United’s preparations for their Premier League showdown with Everton were thrown into chaos when fire engines turned up at the Lowry Hotel, just minutes after the players. The team coach rocked up at the venue at around 1pm. But The Mirror say just moments later the emergency services turned up. 

Two fire engines turned up to the Lowry, which is one of the finest establishments in Manchester.

Firemen piled off the trucks in full gear and into the hotel but it seems it was only a false alarm, much to the relief of people nearby.

The publication states the alarm may have gone off from inside the kitchen, which is why they turned up.

It all happened just a minute after United players had disembarked, with the likes of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Bruno Fernandes, Nemanja Matic and Harry Maguire all snapped arriving.

And, now, attentions will turn to the match against Everton – with three points needed.

United won their last top flight match 9-0 against Southampton, running riot on a sensational night of football under the lights at Old Trafford. 

And they’ll be looking to beat Everton for a third time this season. 

They won the Premier League match at Goodison Park in November, with Fernandes scoring twice in a 3-1 win that day.

And they also got the better of the Toffees when they locked horns in the Carabao Cup the following month, winning 2-0 courtesy of goals from Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial.

The match against Everton falls on the 63rd anniversary of the Munich Air Disaster. 

“It’s important for us to keep the memory alive of the Busby Babes,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports News.

“They’re such a big part of the tradition and history of the club.

“They pioneered our European football contribution and they paid the ultimate price.

“For me to put out a team with quite a few academy players is going to be a proud moment – when you see Marcus (Rashford), Scott (McTominay), Paul (Pogba), Axel (Tuanzebe), all those boys go out there and represent Manchester United in the proper way.

“I hope we can honour them by putting on a proper Manchester United performance out there.

“To show that we can look after the game and say ‘yeah, they’d be proud of us’.”

He also lauded Edinson Cavani ahead of the match, saying: “It reminds me of when Henrik Larsson came over here.

“You know you’ve just got to enjoy the time that he’s here and you’ve got to learn and take bits off his game.

“His movement and attitude, but also his preparation for the game. Everything about him just shines. He’s the ultimate professional and a winner.

“It’s still only halfway through the season and of course, the better we play, the better he plays and the better he feels.

“Hopefully we can make sure he stays on and scores many more goals for us.”
