Gallery: Man United squad training ahead of Chelsea trip

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United’s squad were hard in training yesterday ahead of this weekend’s trip to London for the game against Chelsea.

With Michael Carrick, Daley Blind, Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones absent from training due to injuries, Man United’s squad was relatively thin on numbers in comparison to normal.

That being said, it was good to see Luke Shaw back in full swing and also for Robin van Persie to now be taking part in full training ahead of his return having been sidelined since injuring himself against Swansea.

When it came to his team selection in recent weeks, United’s excellent form made it very easy for van Gaal to keep the same starting XI but injuries means he’ll be forced into multiple changes for the Chelsea game.

Angel di Maria also trained (as shown by Man United’s official video) so is in contention to return to the team.

Here’s a selection of pictures from United’s training session before they travel down to London:
