Manchester United stuck in London traffic, clash with Tottenham delayed

Tottenham's Premier League clash with Manchester United at White Hart Lane was delayed after the visitors' bus got stuck in traffic.

The match had been due to start at 4 p.m. on Sunday but kickoff was put back after Louis van Gaal's men found their preparations disrupted by a late arrival.

Tottenham posted on their official Twitter account: "Kick-off is DELAYED until 4.15pm as the @ManUtd team bus is stuck in traffic.''

United's bus finally arrived at 3.45 p.m., more than an hour late given opposition teams routinely drive into White Hart Lane an hour and 20 minutes before kickoff.

While Spurs warmed up as usual before the game, United's half of the pitch remained empty until 4.10 p.m. when the players finally emerged 20 minutes before the match was scheduled to start.

The preparation was far from ideal for the Red Devils, who sat fifth in the table, four points behind Manchester City with a game in hand.
