Photos: Jose Mourinho manages a smile as Man United train ahead of West Ham clash

The Manchester United manager watches over his squad during their training session on Monday following West Ham stalemate

Jose Mourinho appeared to be in an upbeat mood on Monday afternoon as his Manchester United squad trained ahead of their League Cup quarter-final against West Ham United on Wednesday night.

The Red Devils will take on the Hammers at Old Trafford for the second time in four days after Manchester United were forced to settle for a point in their Premier League clash on Sunday night.

Senegal international Diafra Sakho broke the deadlock in the second minute to give the east London side an unlikely lead before Zlatan Ibrahimovic levelled midway through the first half.

However, the hosts couldn’t find a winner as Manchester United’s stuttering Premier League form continued after one victory in their last five games in all competitions.

Mourinho and his Manchester United squad made a swift return to the training ground on Monday as the Red Devils look to book their place in the League Cup last four.

Here are some of the best photos from Monday’s session as the under-pressure manager watched his club captain Wayne Rooney, veteran midfielder Michael Carrick and Ibrahimovic trained at Carrington.
