Pictures: Man United stars in training gearing up for Barcelona away

Erik ten Hag has been putting his Man United stars through their paces in training ahead of the Barcelona game on Thursday.

Manchester United Football Club are preparing for a huge game against FC Barcelona this coming Thursday, with the Red Devils hoping for safe progression into the next round of the Europa League.

The double-header against the Catalan giants is going to be a massive fixture. It’s also a good barometer to see how far this United squad have come under Erik ten Hag thus far.

Anyway, ahead of the game, the gaffer has been putting his players through their paces in training, with the squad set to fly out to Catalonia tomorrow.

The likes of Casemiro, Zidane Iqbal, Marcus Rashford and the rest of the first-team regulars were all spotted in the session.

There was no Antony, Scott McTominay or Anthony Martial out there on the training field, pointing to those guys being absent for the game that takes place this Thursday.

With Ten Hag working with a light squad, particularly in the midfield area, they’ll be little wiggle room for change during the game itself. Lisandro Martinez and Marcel Sabitzer’s suspensions don’t help matters, though having Casemiro back for this European match is a huge plus.

Barcelona themselves are in stunning form, so beating the Catalan side, particularly away from home, is not going to be easy. United will have to have the perfect gameplan drawn up here, to bring any sort of positive result back to Manchester in one weeks’ time.
