Manchester United’s players made their way to The Cliff on Wednesday morning for a final training session ahead of the Manchester derby.
United abandoned their Carrington training ground after a litany of bad performance and are practising at their old training ground as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer tries to underscore what he expects from his players ahead of tonight’s derby.
Sir Alex Ferguson moulded his great sides of 1994 and 1999 at The Cliff before United moved to Carrington in 2000.
Solskjaer hopes that training where so many United greats were formed will inspire his players after their recent dismal run of form.
United have lost six of their last eight games in all competitions, going out of the FA Cup and Champions League in the process.
Jesse Lingard and David de Gea acknowledged fans outside the hotel with thumbs-up gestures while Romelu Lukaku and Ashley Young made their way onto the team bus listening to music.
Solskjaer confirmed in an interview with Sky Sports on Tuesday that he will make changes to the team that was hammered by Everton on Easter Sunday.
“Of course there will be consequences,” the Norwegian responded when asked by Gary Neville how he will go about picking his side for the derby.
He added: “We’re not going to see the same team.
“We had a plan before the (Everton) game how we’re going to look against City anyway and some decisions would have to wait.
“We had a plan anyway and those two plans (Everton and City) weren’t the same.”
