Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been putting his Man United side through their paces in their final training session before Istanbul Basaksehir away.
The lads would take to the field at a rainy AON Training Complex yesterday, ahead of their flight to the Turkish capital last night.
Tonight’s game against Basaksehir offers United the chance to make it three wins from three and in doing so, the Reds would all-but secure their passage into the knockout phase.
That’s easier said than done, mind. Istanbul Basaksehir are in the Champions League for a reason. They’re a good side with some quality footballers on their books. The last thing we’d want to do is underestimate them.
Anyway, ahead of the fixture, the lads were putting in the work, trying to impress the manager and force their way into the starting line-up. Check out our predicted team here.
The whole squad, including Edinson Cavani, Axel Tuanzebe and Anthony Martial were pictured enjoying the session. Cheers to the official @ManUtd Twitter account for the snaps.
Have a look of the photos of the United squad in training ahead of Istanbul Basaksehir away:
You look at the photos and you see quality everywhere. Although it wasn’t the most overwhelming transfer window, United certainly got deeper at a number of key positions.
The likes of Andreas Pereira is now out on loan rather than regularly starting games. He has been replaced by the likes of Donny van de Beek on the substitutes bench. It just offers Solskjaer many options all over the park, which is key to winning trophies.
Obviously, our domestic season hasn’t started too well, though in Europe we’ve been brilliant. Let’s hope we see another top display this evening. Once again, I’m keenly looking forward to seeing more of Donny van de Beek. Hopefully, we’ll see a first start for Cavani, too…
