It also sparked a wave of “We want Glazers out, we want Glazers out” chants aimed at United’s owners.

With food and drink likely already at the stadium and the technical fault possibly related to card payments, Neville called upon United to give away refreshments for free.

“Give it away free?” the former United captain wrote on Twitter with the shrugging emoji.

It was not only fans at the ground who were left furious by the announcement, with many United supporters on social media taking aim at the Premier League giants.

“Our club is getting more embarrassing by the day, can’t even get a pie at half time,” added another.

“Just when you think our club can’t get any worse….we can’t even supply the fans food and drink at half time Jesus christ man lol,” added a third.

Jadon Sancho’s goal was all United had to show for the first-half dominance

“No food and drink at half time? No wonder they were booing,” a fourth user fumed.

“Biggest club in the world and can’t even get food and drink at half time #GlazersOut” a fifth said.

Sancho put United well on their way to reaching the fifth-round of the competition with his first-half strike.

United had been dominant in the opening period, with Cristiano Ronaldo missing a penalty after Paul Pogba had been brought down in the box.
