The title-chasing trioplayed with 2011 Masters winner Charl Schwartzel as they looked to get the better of the likes of Ian Poulter, Henrik Stenson and Danny Willett.

But while the defender relaxes in the Middle East, his Red Devils team-mates Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard have been working hard on their fitness.

The pair did weight training at a luxury sports complex, while they also honed in on their skills on a perfectly manicured pitch.
