UEFA officials are currently checking the pitch

Manchester United’s game against Galatasaray is at risk of being postponed.

Erik ten Hag’s side have a huge Group A contest at Rams Park in their bid to reach the round of 16 and need to win to keep their hopes alive.

However heavy rainfall has landed in the area and with forecast saying that it will continue until tomorrow, the game could be called off.

The UEFA Youth League game between the two sides was played on an extremely waterlogged pitch earlier in the day.

UEFA officials were spotted checking the condition of the pitch and a decision on whether the game can go ahead or not will have to be made soon, with kick off set to take place at 17:45 British time.

United need to win to keep their slim hopes of qualifying for the knockout stages alive after losing three of their previous four games this campaign.

Marcus Rashford is unavailable for the Red Devils due to suspension after he was sent off in the 4-3 defeat to Copenhagen for catching the ankle of an opposition defender.
