Manchester United have defended their ticket pricing policy ahead of this weekend's FA Cup fourth-round tie against Fulham at Old Trafford.

The London club have complained to the Football Association after discovering that some United fans have been able to purchase seats equivalent to those on offer to Fulham supporters £5 cheaper.

As is common practice for FA Cup games, the clubs had agreed a standard price of £45 for home and away fans but United members have been able to purchase them at a discounted rate of £40. United say that is an offer available only to members under a long-standing scheme and it should not have come as a surprise.
