Manchester United players arrive for training on Christmas Day – pictures

Manchester United players arrived bright and early for a Christmas Day training session this morning.

They reportedly planned to train for around 90 minutes in preparation for tomorrow’s crucial fixture against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.

The winners of Boxing Day’s big match will take the second spot in the Premier League table, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team come to it in good form after their demolition of Leeds United on Sunday and their Carabao Cup victory at Everton on Wednesday.

Jesse Lingard and Lee Grant both got into the Christmas spirit and were pictured wearing festive outfits as they arrived at the Carrington training complex today.
