Fire engines called to Man Utd team hotel ahead of Everton fixture

Manchester United's preparations for tonight's crunch clash against Everton were disrupted after fire engines were called to the Lowry Hotel.

The United team coaches arrived just before 1pm with all the players disembarking and entering their usual team hotel.

Mirror Sport understands that just one minute later two fire engines raced round the corner and pulled up outside the hotel.

Firemen piled off the trucks in full gear and into the hotel but it seems it was only a false alarm.

Moments later the firemen returned to their trucks with everything seemingly fine.

Unconfirmed reports suggest that the false alarm may have come from the kitchen.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was among those who arrived at the Lowry Hotel with the players.

Bruno Fernandes, Nemanja Matic and Harry Maguire were also all snapped entering the 5-star hotel.

It's less than ideal preparation for United who take on seventh-placed Everton at 8pm.

United's fixture was moved from Monday due to Tuesday's FA Cup fixture against West Ham.

Speaking ahead of the tie, Solskjaer said: "Consistency, of course, is vital.

"We've done well away from home, we’ve bounced back after the Sheffield United defeat and feel ready to kick on again and move on, hopefully we can get some momentum.

"We know it’s not going to be easy because we play every two days, or three or four days. But if we can get the consistency, the morale and confidence up, who knows?"
