MANCHESTER UNITED'S preparations for tonight's clash against Everton were disrupted after fire engines rushed to the Lowry Hotel.
Emergency services arrived just minutes after the Red Devils' team coaches arrived and the players had entered their usual team hotel.
United's squad had pulled up just before 1pm with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Bruno Fernandes and Harry Maguire all snapped at the Lowry.
But just one minute later two fire engines had raced around the corner with firemen in full gear following in after the players.

United stay at the Lowry prior to all home fixtures with Solskjaer even living at the Salford base when he was the club's temporary manager.
He only decided to move out once Ed Woodward confirmed he had the job permanently.

Yet the fixture was moved due to Tuesday's FA Cup fixture against West Ham.
