There's A Theory Behind Old Trafford's "Injury Plagued" Surface And It Stinks

There's A Theory Behind Old Trafford's "Injury Plagued" Surface And It Stinks

It certainly won't go down in history as a classic, but one of the biggest talking points from Old Trafford this afternoon was the incredibly unfortunate amount of injuries.

Manchester United used all three substitutions before half-time, while Liverpool's Roberto Firmino was replaced by Daniel Sturridge after rolling his ankle.

It was a nightmare first 45 minutes for both sides.

For the first time since 2009 there was four first half substitutions, and many pointed the finger at Old Trafford's "slippy" surface.

Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that 48 hours before kick-off, Manchester United's groundstaff sprayed Garlic to ensure a smoother surface.

That's right. It is believed that Garlic keeps parasites from damaging the grass.

They, along with many other Premier League sides, have been doing this for years.

But many fans continued to blame the spread of Garlic for the sheer amount of injuries sustained.
