Manchester United are preparing to welcome a Premier League opponent to Old Trafford for the final time this season as Newcastle visit the North West.

The Theatre of Dreams became the stuff of nightmares not for the first time this campaign on Sunday following the defeat to Arsenal.

Sky Sports and other broadcasters showed footage of the heavy rain in Manchester causing flooding in the stands, the away dressing room and a waterfall where the East Stand meets the Sir Alex Ferguson end.

The floods raised questions regarding Old Trafford's future with Sir Jim Ratcliffe committing to finding a solution. The INEOS founder is leaning towards building a new stadium next door to the current ground and has launched a taskforce to weigh up the best course of action.
