Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United squad have been pictured departing Carrington for their Community Shield fixture against Leicester City.

Both sides will kick-off at Wembley Stadium tomorrow evening in Mourinho’s first competitive fixture in charge at the club.

New signings Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan were also in the squad with Anthony Martial, who was not spotted in training with the rest of the 23-man squad.

Here are some pictures of the players leaving for London.

It’s a brilliant opportunity for Mourinho to win his first piece of silverware at the club as Ibrahimovic has also recently revealed he has only set his eyes on winning.

It’ll be great to see Mourinho’s side in action after an underwhelming pre-season showing, it’s hard to take anything from the pre-season games but it would have been a great time for players to become acquainted with their new team-mates.

Mourinho will be putting a strong side, but most of his efforts will be targeting the club’s opening Premier League fixture against Bournemouth on August 14.
