Simon Moore isn't surprised to see the Blades have hit the ground running at the beginning of pre-season.
Speaking from the Marbella Training Centre after United's first session of their five-night trip to Spain, the Blades number one admits it's business as usual after overcoming a minor illness prior to the Stocksbridge friendly.
Moore remarked: "For me personally it's nice to be out there after missing the first week with tonsillitis and the standards in training have been very high and very intense.
"It's a fantastic facility here in Marbella, although it would be easier training in the rain back home!"
The goalkeeper added: "Trips like this help the new boys bed in, but to be honest we've just carried on from last season. The lads that have come in over the summer have settled straight into the group.
"We're looking forward to the Malaga game, we were sharp and ruthless at Stocksbridge, but Friday will be a much tougher test for us."
