5 Things I Observed From Manchester United Training Sessions Today

Manchester United already had training sessions as they prepare for their opening Champions League fixture against Young Boys. Here are five things I observed from Manchester United training today.

1. Manchester United's youth forward Anthony Elanga trained with the first team. The Swedes international replaced Edinson Cavani who's currently out of the squad to face Young Boys today. Anthony Elanga could be on his way to make Champions League debut for Manchester United today, he's already having a brilliant season with the youth team. Ole Gunnar Solskjær gave him his Premier League debut last season, he could do the same in the Champions League.

2. Fred trained with the squad today after he was excluded from the squad to face Newcastle United. Ole Gunnar Solskjær made Fred his favourite player in the center midfield position, he was absent against Newcastle United because he might be unfit. Fred was named in the travelling squad to face Young Boys and will definitely be available.

3. Tom Heaton trained with the squad ahead of the match against Young Boys. He'll be David de gea's second choice goalkeeper if anything eventually goes wrong against Young Boys. Tom Heaton is still yet to make an appearance for Manchester United this season, David de gea has been the trusted goalkeeper in goal. There's still more matches to be played this season, David de gea can't feature in all competitions.


Cristiano Ronaldo showing off his Juggling skills to Eric Bailly and Raphael Varane. The Portuguese forward is already looking forward to the match against young boys today. He's the most successful player in the history of the Champions League, hopefully he shows that at Manchester United this season.

5. Eric Bailly trained extensively today, with hopes of making it to the lineup against Young Boys. Raphael Varane already took his place in Manchester United first team, he initially battled with Victor Lindelof for the first place but now there's no spot to battle.
