Manchester United’s squad was hard in training today ahead of this weekend’s tricky fixture against Crystal Palace.
Going into the game off the back of three consecutive defeats against Chelsea, Everton and West Brom, Louis van Gaal will be keen for his squad to respond with a victory but Selhurst Park is not an easy ground.
Palace have already taken points off the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool at Selhurst Park this season and United are under pressure to return to form.
United go into the game knowing that three points and a Chelsea win over Liverpool will secure their top four spot.
Conversely, a loss against Palace matched with a Liverpool win would close the gap to one point ahead of Arsenal’s visit to Old Trafford, so Van Gaal will be desperate to avoid that situation.
All in all, it’s a very important fixture which has the potential to finish United’s season or blow it wide open.
Here’s some pictures of the players in training ahead of tomorrow’s crucial game:
