Spot the difference

There should, clearly, be no resemblance at all between the two. But the piles of uncut grass routinely being left on the city’s football pitches, often making them unplayable until young players and their parents get to work with rakes, has led to comparisons being made. So, for a bit of fun, we thought we would play a game of spot the difference. Can you tell which is the pitch which is supposed to be fit for playing football and which is the famous painting? We’ve got three pairs of images for you to tell apart - and, honestly, it is far harder than it should be.
