In the fourth round of FA cup on Friday, January 25 United will face the Gunners.
The tie at the Emirates Stadium, surely the pick of the round, will kick off at 7.55pm on Friday, January 25, and will be screened live on BBC One.
The results claim that within 30 minutes of the fixture being switched, the last train out of London Euston to Manchester Picadilly, an 11 pm service, had sold out.
That would leave fans travelling by train having to get the 9.15pm service, meaning that they’d miss a large portion of the second half.
United are likely to put on special travel services to help fans, but the decision to switch the game has been met with anger by supporters.
Fans displayed their anger via tweets:

Due to the sudden face off announcement fans roared up. The facility of travel services are sold out and the remaining left will miss a large portion of the game so fans are left with no choice and all they can do is burst out with anger.
