Manchester United and West Brom played out two 60-minute friendlies at Old Trafford on Friday afternoon as both sides step up their respective preparations for the return of competitive football next week.

 

Albion host Birmingham City at The Hawthorns on next Saturday, while United head to the capital to tackle Tottenham Hotspur – promotion to the Premier League and qualification for the Champions League are the respective ambitions of the Baggies and the Red Devils.

Ahead of those returns to action, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Slaven Bilic organised a double header to help the fitness levels of all the players before those meetings, believed to be an hour long apiece.
