Here, we take a look back at some of the best images from a memorable tour Down Under to Perth and Sydney for the Whites.

Leeds United began their centenary season with a long-haul trip Down Under to Perth and Sydney to take on Manchester United and Western Sydney Wanderers.
Over 3,000 fans turned out in Perth to watch Leeds United take part in an open training session - what incredible support thousands of miles away.

Leeds were put through their paces in front of their supporters - answers on a postcard for what Patrick Bamford finds amusing!
Kalvin Phillips and the rest of his Leeds United team-mates spent time with fans following the session - posing for photos and handing out free shirts.
What a photo... the Whites showpiece fixture of the tour was a clash against Manchester United in Perth at the Optus stadium - the first meeting for nearly eight years between the two.
Smile, lads!
As someone said... the best midfielder in the world and Paul Pogba. Unfortunately Leeds fell to a 4-0 defeat though the scoreline perhaps failed to reflect the fixture.
55,274 to be exact - an experience fans won't forget in a hurry.
A serious contingent of fans travelled from all across the world for the fixture - and the players once again showed thanks with pictures, shirts and autographs.
And club captain Liam Cooper was on media duty ahead of the official unveiling of the Bankwest stadium, where Leeds took on A-League side Western Sydney Wanderers.
A night where history was made... and Leeds United would cap off the tour to Australia with a last-gasp 2-1 victory over the Wanderers.
Youngster Mateusz Bogusz starred for Leeds and made headlines with a stunning goal with a curling effort off the underside of the bar - a piece of history too bagging the first strike in the Bankwest.
Marcelo Bielsa's bucket made it out to Australia as did the Argentine as he flew in late. He initially remained back at Thorp Arch to work with the rest of his squad.
He may have forgotten his shooting boots on the plane but United did sign off with a victory. If you don't laugh, you'll cry - a number of chances missed but all it takes is one to get going.
And what an image... Pablo doing Pablo things. A stunning goal in the dying seconds ensured Leeds signed off with a victory. An individual moment of brilliant from the Spaniard.
A fitting end to a trip that fans and players won't forget anytime soon - more free shirts!
