Manchester United have jetted down to England's south coast as they prepare to take on Brighton and Hove Albion under the Friday night lights.
Jose Mourinho's side are aiming to secure second spot behind Manchester City in the Premier League table and gain momentum for the FA Cup final against Chelsea that could provide the only silverware of their season.
Wearing club issue tracksuits, they boarded a private jet and made the short flight down to Brighton well in advance of Friday evening's match at the Amex Stadium.

It is United's first-ever visit to the stadium and they face a Seagulls side pretty much assured of a second campaign in the Premier League.
One of those who didn't make the trip is striker Romelu Lukaku, but Mourinho, speaking on Thursday, is upbeat about his chances of being fit for the FA Cup final on May 19.
Lukaku, who has scored 27 goals for United this season, limped out of their 2-1 win over Arsenal on Sunday with an ankle complaint and has been recovering back home in Belgium, where he was filmed moving freely in a medicine ball exercise on Thursday.
Mourinho confirmed the 24-year-old forward's injury isn't as bad as first feared and said he should be available for the showdown at Wembley.
