The two teams emerge from a spacious Old Trafford tunnel with the Stone Roses ringing in their ears. Ian Brown and co. have been the only ones singing at the so-called Theatre of Dreams lately with Manchester United not having won in front of their own fans in the league since September. Another failure today and they can surely say goodbye to any feint hopes of a title challenge.
