Manchester United managerOle Gunnar Solskjaer prepared his squad ahead of their away leg of their last-16 tie against LASK Linz in Austria with the news that the match will be played in front of no fans.

First-team players including Bruno Fernandes, Harry Maguire and David de Gea all took part in the training session at United's Aon Training Complex on Wednesday ahead of Thursday's match.
