United players certainly looked in good spirits throughout, although one moment, in particular, led team leader Bruno Fernandes to hand out what appeared to be a timely reminder of the occasion.
The Portuguese midfielder watched on as Fred and Alex Telles performed some kind of Brazilian martial arts routine on the pitch, but he was having none of it.
After having a quick word, the pair looked at Fernandes - like a kid would after being told off by a parent - before resuming their normal training duties. The look on their faces is priceless.

A report in the Times about Fernandes from earlier this year proves exactly the kind of winning mentality United need to push on and claim more silverware.
After arriving at Carrington on the day he signed, Fernandes went through medical tests, signed his deal and then did a promotional shoot. He then turned to Solskjaer and asked "Can I train now?" before doing a session.
In fact, he could have chosen to spend the time celebrating his daughter's third birthday but instead wanted to 'get up to speed' ahead of his debut.
He continued to impress the next day when his new teammates joined him for training with one source telling the newspaper that the midfielder's desire to be at the heart of everything and demanding the ball from teammates 'gave everyone a lift.'

The impact Fernandes has had on this United team is undeniable. Can they lift the Europa League trophy on Wednesday night?
