Twitter: Manchester United duo in positive spirits ahead of Champions League opener

Manchester United duo Bastian Schweinsteiger and Ashley Young appeared to be in buoyant mood ahead of the club’s return to the UEFA Champions League group stage.

The Red Devils are the visitors to the Phillps Stadion on Tuesday night as they entertain defending Eredivisie champions PSV Eindhoven and will be hoping to pick up from where they left off at the weekend against bitter rivals Liverpool.

Goals in the second half from makeshift centre-back Daley Blind, midfielder Ander Herrera and debutant Anthony Martial handed United a 3-1 victory at Old Trafford and secured a third straight win in recent meetings against the Merseyside outfit.

Schweinsteiger started the match on Saturday evening and he posted a image on his official Twitter account of him and teammate Ashley Young as they prepared to make the journey to the Netherlands.
