With the Bindippers visiting on Sunday it seems to be fitting that vermin have infested Old Trafford. But to avoid any Tom and Jerry style jumping on seats this Sunday the club is trying to sort out the problem

A club spokesman said: "Like any other public venue, we have had incidents from time to time when mice have been spotted here.

"But it is certainly not a major problem and this is the first time anyone has referred to them being on the pitch during a match.

"We have our own property services department to deal with any problems like this.

"They will take whatever steps are necessary before Sunday’s home game with Liverpool."
