Matteo Darmian looked delighted to be spending his Christmas Day at home with his girlfriend Francesca as Manchester United prepared for their Boxing Day clash against Sunderland.

The Italian defender made the most of some rare time off during the Christmas period to spend some time with his fiancee at home.
