As Manchester United prepare to face Manchester City in a crucial game in the title race and the battle for top four, the heavens have opened.
While it’s unclear who the torrential downpour is a bad omen for, it’s certainly going to be bad luck for a few fans at Old Trafford.
An apparent broken part of the roof has caused a waterfall of rain to pour down onto one unfortunate section of the stands.

Old Trafford stewards have congregated around the stands, apparently powerless to stop the cascading water, and probably hoping the problem doesn’t become worse.
It seems unlikely fans will be able to sit in the affected section unless something can be done before kick off.
Fans outside the stadium have been pictured braving the elements as the Manchester derby counts down to kick off.
The crowd can probably expect to hear a few rain related songs over the speaker system before and after the match.
