“The safety, it seems really well organised. Like you said, we all got tested before we came in, so everyone in the changing room has a negative test,” Maguire said.

“There are a lot fewer people at the training ground. Today I was in a group of four, working with one coach, so not many people.

“It’s the first step. We’re in phase one, let’s get through this phase without any troubles. It’s only the first day, but it’s been a good start for me.”

Manchester United currently occupy the fifth place in the Premier League table with 45 points in 29 matches. Liverpool lead the race with 82 points, followed by Manchester City (57), Leicester City (53) and Chelsea (48).
