Manchester United players in good spirits ahead of FA Cup visit to Yeovil Town

Manchester United’s first team squad were in good spirits as they prepared to face Yeovil Town in the FA Cup fourth round on Friday night.

Jose Mourinho confirmed at a press conference on Thursday that Alexis Sanchez, who arrived at the club on Monday, would be part of the travelling squad ahead of his long-awaited debut.

Man United’s last visit to Huish Park came in the third round back in 2015, with Ander Herrera and Angel Di Maria sealing a 2-0 win.

And United’s players have been videoed in good spirits during their final training session before heading to the West Country.

Romelu Lukaku, who has 17 goals this season, was on hand to net the winner in what is fast emerging as a hotly contested practice game at the end of each session, firing a superb free-kick into the bottom corner.

Victor Lindelof, Joel Pereira, Scott McTominay, Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic and Anthony Martial were also part of the “winning team”, and Lukaku was quick to point out that Jesse Lingard, once again, had ended up on the losing side.

Matic, who has recently joined Instagram, took things even further by giving a gracious-in-victory interview to Lindelof back in the dressing.

And here is Eric Bailly just being Eric Bailly as he draws closer to fully recovering from an ankle operation in December.
