(Photos) Loads of Man Utd fans react to awful playing surface for Tranmere FA Cup tie

The main talking point surrounding Manchester United’s FA Cup fourth round tie against Tranmere this afternoon is the state of the Prenton Park playing surface.

Tranmere’s pitch, also shared by Liverpool Women, is in horrendous condition and there have been sand and rollers used before kick off in an attempt to improve the swamped surface.

While there should be no excuses for a Manchester United side boasting plenty of quality this afternoon, the Reds are certainly at a disadvantage with these conditions.

League One strugglers Tranmere beat Watford at home on Thursday evening in similar conditions to set up this clash.

There are concerns among supporters that the pitch puts United players at risk of injury this afternoon.

Sergio Romero, Diogo Dalot, Victor Lindelof, Jesse Lingard, Mason Greenwood and Luke Shaw all return to first-team action in what appears to be a five-at-the-back set up.

Anthony Martial will again start in attack will Angel Gomes left out of the squad entirely.
