Pictures: Man United stars in training ahead with some key players returning

Manchester United’s biggest game of the season is just hours away. Jose Mourinho’s men lead Celta Vigo by a slender 1-0 margin going into the match at Old Trafford. Right now, we’re in the driver’s seat but the tie is far from over.

Ahead of the match, Mourinho and his coaching staff have been putting the players through their paces. The full squad was involved, and it included plenty of players who were allowed some time off over the weekend against Arsenal; Antonio Valencia, Eric Bailly, Daley Blind and Paul Pogba can all be spotted on the images below.

Have a look at the photos below:

Although we’re without a few players for the rest of the campaign, our squad is looking a whole lot better thanks to the return of Juan Mata, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones. It just gives the manager those extra options when it comes to rotating his side – and that can only benefit the squad as more of our stars will be allowed to rest.

Onto the game, then. It definitely won’t be easy, and there is absolutely no way that Celta will play as badly as they did in the first leg. They are a very talented team and I fully expect them to bounce back strong here, so our guys will have to keep their concentration up throughout the match.
