A video clip has surfaced on social media channels of Manchester United and Everton fans brawling just hours before their teams met in today's FA Cup semi-final at Wembley.

The images show two men fighting in the car park of a service station, which is believed to be Cannock Services, located on the M6 in Staffordshire.


After a flurry of punches between two men, a fan wearing a blue shirt is knocked to the ground and appears to be unconscious. The video is unclear but it may be the blow to the injured fan comes from a third man, not involved in the opening exchange of punches.

The fighting soon breaks up as a crowd of onlookers gather to check on the downed supporter while another fan throws a blue smoke bomb at what seems to be the individual who landed the final blow.

Staffordshire Police did not make any immediate arrests.
