Training highlights: De Gea save, Garner worldie and more
Have you watched Tuesday’s training wrap from St Andrews yet?
If not, you might be missing the following five highlights, packed into just a minute of action…
DE GEA’S ONE-HANDED SAVE (00:08)
David only returned to United training this week after his post-Euros summer break, but he is already looking sharp, as can be seen early in the video when he makes one of his trademark close-range stops.
A NEW LOOK FOR RETURNING MARTIAL (00:12)
We’re looking forward to seeing Anthony back in action after the knee injury he suffered in March and it certainly seems like he means business! The Frenchman has brought back the shaved head he initially adopted after the first lockdown in 2020 and he’s not alone, with Luke Shaw also seemingly having made a summer trip to the barbers…
GARNER’S WORLDIE (00:16)
The 20-year-old midfielder has enjoyed a fruitful pre-season with the first-team squad, having been part of the southern camp too. He showed what he was capable of in Tuesday’s session, beating De Gea with two similar curling efforts with his right foot – and you can see one in the wrap above!
JESSE GIVES IT ‘THE EYES’ (00:24)
I spoke to Lingard on Tuesday afternoon and he was keen to mention how fit and confident he’s feeling ahead of the new season. That was evident here as he latched on to a loose ball and slipped it into the far corner, using his less favoured left foot.
BRUNO VOLLEYS HOME (00:49)
Fernandes is always great value to watch in training and there are some nifty bits of skill in the video if you keep your eyes peeled. This volley against young keeper Matej Kovar is unstoppable, though!
