Most midweek Premier League games start at 7.45pm or 8pm.

And fans were left scrambling to make it to the ground in time after the city centre ground to a halt.

According to reports in Manchester, commuters rushed out of the office early in a bid to get to the ground - or even back home to fire up their Amazon Prime account.

Transport for Greater Manchester warned of major delays in key areas of the city - both inbound and outbound.

Taking to Twitter, they wrote: "Traffic generally much heavier on many routes as football traffic heading for Old Trafford is mingling with rush hour traffic.

"Motorways are a bit stuffed too."

Incredibly, fans on Twitter complained about the journey from Salford Central to Chapel Street - a 0.1 mile journey - taking an HOUR.

One wrote: "For reference it took the 100 bus I'm on over an hour to get from Shudehill to past those lights today.

"As soon as we got past them on Chapel Street we've been moving a lot faster."

Another replied: "Same here, just taken 45 minutes to get from Salford central to the bus lane on chapel street.

"People won’t use busses when they get stuck like this everyday!"
