Gallery: Manchester United train ahead of Sunderland

by Ben Topliss

After the disappointing loss to Swansea last week, Louis van Gaal will want an immediate response from his players against Sunderland on Saturday.

Manchester United are at home tomorrow which gives van Gaal’s side an advantage given their good form at Old Trafford but as the 1-1 draw at the Stadium of Light earlier this season showed, no game in the Premier League is a guaranteed three points any more.

With Liverpool playing Manchester City and Arsenal playing Everton, it could also be an opportunity for United to gain some ground on other clubs chasing the top four spots, so it is not something United can really afford to not capitalise on.

There were a few games where van Gaal seemingly stopped photographers watching United’s training sessions but it seems he is happy for them to be back at Carrington again.

Here’s a selection of pictures from United in training ahead of the Sunderland game tomorrow:
