Introduction to this article:
Manchester United suffered a humiliating defeat in a recent training ground friendly, according to reports. This comes as the team prepares for an upcoming FA Cup clash with League Two Newport County.

Manchester United’s Preparations

Many of Erik ten Hag’s stars enjoyed a break in Dubai as they looked to recharge their batteries following a busy Christmas period. They are now all back at Carrington, preparing for this weekend’s FA Cup clash with League Two Newport County. In a bid to get back in the swing of things, it’s claimed that a training ground friendly with Burnley, who themselves have not played since January 12, was organised. According to Man Utd expert Fredrik Filtvedt, the Clarets beat the Red Devils 3-1.

Fan Reactions

Fans were left dismayed by the result, with some expressing their frustration on social media. Burnley’s position in the Premier League and Newport’s standing in League Two also came under scrutiny.

FA Cup Preparations

Burnley are 19th in the Premier League, having won just three of their 21 games so far this term. Man Utd’s FA Cup opponents Newport, meanwhile, sit 14th in League Two. Graham Coughlan’s side booked their place in round four by beating non-league Eastleigh 3-1 in a replay. Tickets for Newport’s clash with Man Utd sold out within just half an hour on Monday morning.

Ticket Controversy

The fourth-tier side were forced to sell the final tickets for the game online after angry confrontations between supporters and staff at their ticket office last week. This reveals the high level of interest and excitement surrounding the upcoming match.
