(Photos) Man United stars love a car park warm-up as Jose Mourinho prepares his troops for Liverpool

Not content with seeing his Man United players warm up in a car park prior to their EFL Cup game with Northampton last month, Jose Mourinho is at it again.

Just hours before his side take on Liverpool in a huge showdown at Anfield on Monday night, the United squad were seen laughing and joking during a light warm-up in the car park of their hotel.

Given that United went on to beat Northampton 3-1 last month, perhaps he’s a superstitious man and believes that it will bring them luck against their bitter rivals.

However, it’s more likely that it’s just a simple workout to keep them on their toes and to stay sharp with some light stretching and exercises before the big game.

Many of the players seemed to be enjoying it, as seen in the images below, but ultimately they will have to deliver against an in-form Liverpool side who are expected to win.

United have won just one of their last four Premier League games, which has left them in seventh place in the table, six points adrift of leaders Manchester City.

Defeat to Liverpool would be a blow both in terms of losing to their old foes and for their chances of closing the gap, and although it’s in no way a decisive showdown, it is certainly a very important one.
