Manchester United produced an assured and effective performance in the 3-1 win over Bournemouth last time out and Louis van Gaal may be tempted to leave things as they are for the FA Cup final this weekend.
It was a good dress rehearsal for the main event on Saturday and the same side could well line up at Wembley:
Antonio Valencia and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson were solid in the full-back positions, Rooney showed an excellent range of passing in midfield while Anthony Martial and Rashford were in a dangerous mood going forward.
Of course, the final at Wembley will represent a completely different kettle of fish for United but if they produced a similar performance they can be confident of seeing off Crystal Palace.
Supporters are desperate to end the season on a high note following what has been a largely disappointing campaign and an FA Cup victory could prove to be a turning point for United’s fortunes in the future.
