Fans hail Man Utd supporter as picture of food in stands goes viral | The Sun

FOOTBALL supporters have praised a Manchester United fan after he was spotted eating his dinner in the stands at Old Trafford.

The image of a supporter enjoying his meal on a plate during what is understood to have been the Red Devils' Europa League clash with Sevilla went viral on social media.

He appeared to be eating some chicken and chips, with a couple of pots of additional grub thrown in for good measure.

And those online showed their appreciation for the fan's antics.

One said: "Incredible effort — this behaviour must be applauded.??"

Another jovially joked: "Good effort that. Managed to keep that plate in tact all the way from London."

A third replied: "More to the point how has he managed to get that in a stadium when we’re not even allowed bottle caps? ?"

And a fourth responded: "Chicken dippers and mum's homemade chips. F*****g love to see it ?."

While the Man Utd fan was supposedly tucking into his food, Erik ten Hag's side raced into a two-goal lead after 21 minutes in their Europa League quarter-final first leg against Sevilla.

But things began to unravel for the Premier League giants at half-time when Raphael Varane was removed due to an injury.

Tyrell Malacia then turned into his own goal with six minutes remaining as the visitors reduced the deficit.

And Ten Hag lost his other centre-back moments later when Lisandro Martinez went down unchallenged with a metatarsal problem that has subsequently seen him ruled out for the rest of the season.

But as Man Utd had made their five changes, they were forced to play the end of the game with 10 men.

And Sevilla's pressure told in stoppage-time when Youssef En-Nesyri's header cannoned off Harry Maguire and into the back of the net.

Man Utd will now need to beat Sevilla in Spain next week to secure a spot in the Europa League semi-finals.
