The Manchester United team jet off to a training camp in Qatar for four days ahead of their FA Cup clash against Fulham.

The Manchester United squad have flown to Qatar for a four-day training camp following their draw with Tottenham Hotspur.

The Red Devils, who sit five points clear of Manchester City in the Premier League table, will 'recuperate' in the sun after their 1-1 draw with Spurs at White Hart Lane yesterday.

Midfielder Michael Carrick told MUTV: "I think it will be an important break for us. We can get the sun cream out hopefully and get out on the beach and relax a bit.

"It's a busy season and there are busy times ahead. It's about recuperating and getting ready for the next game."

United will turn their attentions to the FA Cup when they return as they are due to face Fulham on Saturday in the fourth round of the competition.
