Chris Smalling and Luke Shaw both looked to be in good spirits as they posed for a picture en route to Los Angeles for Manchester United’s pre-season tour.

The pair were not called up to the England squad for this summer’s World Cup in Russia and so they have reported back to Carrington to begin their pre-season preparations.

Shaw and Smalling will both be hoping to prove themselves to Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho in the coming weeks as they bid to earn a regular spot in the first team next season.

And the English duo seemed to be in high spirits as they posed for a picture on the plane ahead of their flight to the US.

Smalling posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “LA Bound ✈️🇺🇸 #mufc.”

Manchester United will be looking to at least be able to challenge for the Premier League title next season after they ended up second and without a trophy last term.

The Red Devils have not lifted the Premier League trophy since their famous final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2013.

They reached the FA Cup final last season but ended up being beaten by Chelsea FC at Wembley back in May.
