Paul Scholes was a notable absentee from Manchester United training on Wednesday, as the club stepped up their Europa League preparations.
The Red Devils will welcome Athletic Bilbao to Old Trafford on Thursday for the first leg of their last 16 showdown.
Scholes looks set to miss that encounter after sitting out training, but he was expected to be rested anyway after being involved in Sunday's Premier League victory over Tottenham.
Fellow midfielder Tom Cleverley was in attendance at Carrington, hinting at a potential comeback after his recent ankle injury.
Chris Smalling also seemed to have recovered from the cut head he sustained on England duty last week.
There was no sign of Michael Owen and Antonio Valencia trained on his own as he continues his recovery from a hamstring strain.
Meanwhile, youngster Paul Pogba was training with the reserves who were not involved in last night's second-string encounter with West Brom, further fuelling reports he has agreed to join Juventus in the summer.
