Manchester United's pre-season preparations continued on Monday as the Reds travelled from Norway to Sweden, where they'll face Barcelona in Gothenburg on Wednesday night.

After checking in to the hotel they'll call home for the next three days, the players grabbed a bite to eat, had an afternoon rest and then hit the training pitch for another tough pre-season session.

It wasn't a case of all work and no play, though, as our pictures taken by club photographers John and Matt Peters show illustrate. There were plenty of smiles, too.
