Manchester United’s preparations for tonight’s Premier League game against Newcastle United

have been severely hampered when their planned travel plans were revised at the last minute. The Red Devils’ squad had arrived at Manchester Airport,

ready to fly to the north east for this evening’s televised encounter, only to discover that their flight had been cancelled, as first reported by the Manchester Evening News.

 

The planned flight was canceled due to a combination of frigid conditions and technological difficulties, forcing the club to make a last-minute

change of plans. The group has instead boarded a coach to the north east and will now make the three-hour drive up the motorway to Newcastle’s St James’ Park.

 

The team is still scheduled to arrive well before of the 8 p.m. kick-off, but rather than arriving early in the city and taking a planned rest before

the game, those arrangements have had to be modified.

Freezing conditions have gripped the country, with a weather warning predicting temperatures below freezing tonight, with snow flurries possible during the game.

 

Tonight’s encounter pairs Eddie Howe’s Mags, who are seventh in the table, against Erik ten Haag’s men,

who are one point and one spot above them, with Newcastle looking for their second win of the season.

 

The temperature in Newcastle is expected to drop to zero degrees by the time the match begins.

Fans taking the Metro to the game have been advised to exercise extreme caution.

 

“The severe cold has caused a high number of train failures,” a Nexus representative said.

“Our message to fans heading to the Newcastle match is to allow plenty of extra time to get there.

” If you are taking the Metro, it is preferable to arrive in the city center sooner.”
