Manchester United’s quest to make it three Premier League wins out of three, with victory over their upcoming opponents Leicester City, as they rocked up to training on Monday.
After back-to-back 4-0 triumphs over West Ham and Swansea, the Red Devils began their preparation for the visit of the Foxes on Saturday with a session at their Aon Complex base.
And before it could begin the United squad greeted fans who waited patiently for them at the club’s training ground entrance.
De Gea’s Spanish compatriot Juan Mata was also present at the club’s training session

Ander Herrera and new signing Victor Lindelof were among the table-toppers’ contingent who signed autographs and posed for photos alongside some supporters.
Playmaker Juan Mata was another popular player among the fans – as he had a queue of them lined up next to his Mercedes.
Key personnel David de Gea and Antonio Valencia were also spotted driving into training on Monday, while Matteo Darmian and Anthony Martial arrived via taxis – the latter pulling up in an Uber.
Martial scored United’s fourth in Saturday’s win at Swansea and the France forward believes his team-mate Paul Pogba is set for a stellar season at Old Trafford hailing him as ‘probably the best midfield player in the world’, who could become a Ballon d’Or winner within five years.

As did Anthony Martial (back) who has praised his United team-mate Paul Pogba
‘Paul is very mentally strong and he is very sure of himself,’ he told MUTV ahead of an upcoming documentary about Pogba.
‘He is a big guy, he is very technical on the ball and he has lots of endurance.
‘I would say he is probably the best midfield player in the world. He is still young, too, so he has a lot to work on and he can get even better.
‘As a person you can see he is always the same. He is funny, always smiling, he doesn’t take himself too seriously, I always see him laughing and he is a good friend of mine. He is the same person on and off the pitch, and he’ll continue to be like this.
‘We want to win a lot of trophies together at United, and we also want to win the World Cup with France.
‘If he continues to play and improve like he is doing then I think he is also going to win the Ballon d’Or award in the next five years.’
