Manchester's United's Jesse Lingard, Luke Shaw and Diogo Dalot in Dubai for winter training

Arsenal and Chelsea players, including Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Mason Mount, are also in the UAE to work on their fitness

Instead of putting their feet up for a rest during the Premier League winter break, a host of Premier players have flown to Dubai for warm weather training.

Manchester United's Jesse Lingard, Luke Shaw and Diogo Dalot were all seen at the Nad Al Sheba Sports Complex in a bid to help get United's season back on track after a difficult campaign so far. Young defender Brandon Williams is also in Dubai.

Portuguese full-back Dalat posted on social media showing him hard at work alongside teammate Lingard, with the message "Hard work + heat".

Dalot has also found some time to pay a trip to Abu Dhabi where he visited the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.

While Arsenal's squad are due to arrive in Dubai on February 7 for a four-day training camp, some of their squad are already in the UAE.

Midfielder Lucas Torreira showed himself enjoying time on the beach with Bluewaters Island in the background.

Striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang showed off his method of transport as he took a private jet to the UAE.

Nicolas Pepe, Arsenal's record signing, showed himself sat on the bonnet of a Rolls Royce on the Palm Jumeirah.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta had earlier said that he would use the club's winter break in Dubai as an opportunity to get his ideas across as well as provide players the chance to rest and recharge.

"We have to improve quality-wise. We're very far in terms of what I want in sustaining attacks and being unpredictable in our play, but that's a process," Arteta told Sky Sports after his side's goal-less draw with Burnley at the weekend.

Arsenal, who are 10th with 31 points from 25 matches, return to league action against Newcastle United on February 16.

"In the next two weeks, we have longer periods for training and I'll use them. We need some players back from injury and try our best to improve the team."

Meanwhile, Chelsea's, Mason Mount and Ross Barkley are also using the Nad Al Sheba Complex facilities and Callum Hudson-Odoi has been pictured in Dubai.
