After a brief hiatus due to international duties, Manchester United will be gearing up to meet Sheffield United this Saturday at Bramall Lane. The Red Devils’ recent form was highlighted by a thrilling 2-1 victory against Brentford, courtesy of two last-minute goals from the substitute, Scott McTominay.
Given their rocky start, where they recorded their poorest commencement in 37 seasons, the win was paramount for the team’s spirit. Now, with Sheffield United languishing at the bottom of the Premier League standings with a mere point, the forthcoming match provides a stellar chance for United to claim successive league wins.

In preparation for this crucial match-up, Manchester United has been diligent in their training regime at Carrington. From what Manchester Evening News captured during the Thursday training, here are the five things that was spotted from the training session.
