Manchester United face a crunch trip to Turin to take on Juventus in the Champions League.

The Red Devils are perhaps fortunate to be occupying second place in their group with just four points from their opening three fixtures.

But with a tough trip to the Old Lady - and a visit to Valencia still to come - Jose Mourinho’s side face a difficult task to qualify from Group H.

But spirits are high at Old Trafford right now.

In the league, they’re unbeaten in four matches having beaten Newcastle, Everton and Bournemouth, and achieved a draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

That has lifted them to seventh in the table, just four points off the Champions League qualification places.

And you can just tell the mood around the club has improved.

That much could be seen during Sky Sports’ Vinny O’Connor’s live report from the training group ahead of their trip to Italy.

The Sky Sports reporter was doing his usual 'piece to camera' at Carrington when Marcus Rashford attempted to ping a ball 30-yards towards him.

And following his last-minute winner against Bournemouth at the weekend, Rashford hit the target once again, striking O’Connor on the back.

It was an outrageously cheeky shot - and a pretty impressive one at that.

What a hit, Marcus.

Fortunately, it struck O’Connor’s back, rather than his head.

But the United players certainly saw the funny side of it with the cameras catching them chuckling at what Rashford had just done.

Mourinho will just be hoping he can emulate that kind of accuracy against Juventus on Wednesday night.
