Pictures: Man United stars in training ahead of SL Benfica clash

Manchester United Football Club has a huge opportunity, with a win tonight, they can ensure progression into the last sixteen of the Champions League.

Jose Mourinho’s men have been perfect in European competition so far, looking pretty good in the process.

Ahead of the showdown against SL Benfica tonight, Mourinho has been putting his stars through their paces in what looks like a rather fun training session, judging by the pictures below, that were posted by the official Twitter account.

The snaps included backup shot-stopper Sergio Romero, youngster Scott McTominay and even Luke Shaw, who we haven’t seen an awful lot of this season despite the fact he’s back fit and ready to play.

After our absence from Europe’s premier competition last term, it has been great hearing that music back at the Theatre of Dreams this term. The manner in which we’ve blown away our opponents has been equally pleasing, and we’re certainly looking good for topping our group.

As we’ve seen in the past, finishing at the top of the pile can be essential if you harbour hopes of winning the whole thing. More often than not, we’ll be handed a better luck of the draw, giving us a much better chance.
