Manchester United’s players were pictured training on Wednesday as the team stepped up preparations for this weekend’s game at Everton.
There was a new face in the mix too, as Alejandro Garnacho was spotted training with the first team.
Garnacho was not included in any of the official training pictures released on the club’s website or made available to the press, with United keen to keep his involvement under wraps.
However, Garnacho was seen in a training video posted by United, and he could be seen jogging alongside Bruno Fernandes.
Hannibal and Ronaldo feature
It was important to see Cristiano Ronaldo back in training after missing Manchester United’s match at home to Leicester at the weekend.
United lacked a focal point up front and it is important he is back to lead the line away at Everton this weekend.
Ronaldo would be making his first appearance for United since sealing World Cup qualification, and he is looking to add to his 18 goals for United this season.

Tunisia international Hannibal was also involved. He has been training with the first team regularly this season although is yet to make an appearance.
With the season ticking down, there is an increased chance the midfielder gets a chance as United look to freshen up their options.
It is encouraging to see Hannibal mixing in with the first team, and Alejandro Garnacho stepping up is another important step.
The youngster has scored 15 goals for United’s academy sides this season and recently earned a surprise international call-up with Argentina’s senior team.
