Man Utd player involved in 'furious' bust-up with teammate spotted in training ahead of Crystal Palace clash
| Last updated
A young Manchester United player previously involved in an ugly training ground bust-up might be about to get his chance to make amends.
United, who won the competition last season, enter the game fresh from a crucial 1-0 victory over Burnley.
Indeed, Erik ten Hag’s side, who had lost the previous three games, are languishing in ninth in the Premier League.
Roy Hodgson’s men came from behind to beat Plymouth 4-2 in the second round of the competition courtesy of an Odsonne Édouard goal and Jean-Philippe Mateta hat-trick.
After their tepid 0-0 draw with Fulham on Saturday Hodgson complained about a lack of resources ahead of Tuesday's match, with the club affected by a spate of injuries.
United too have had to contend with several injuries at the start of the campaign but will be bolstered by Mason Mount and Harry Maguire’s return to training.
Meanwhile, United youngster Dan Gore was among those spotted training at Carrington, and the under-18 England international could be set to feature in Tuesday’s cup tie.
Gore, an attacking midfielder, impressed Ten Hag in pre-season but at present is best known for a historical training ground bust-up with Anthony Martial.
Last November, with large swathes of Ten Hag’s squad at the World Cup, the United starlet was invited to train with the first team. Things, however, did not go particularly smoothly.
As per the Mirror, the 18-year-old clattered Martial with a crunching challenge despite tackles on established first-team stars having been forbidden.
Tempers then boiled over with the French "furious" star lashing out before the pair were pulled apart.
Martial apologised shortly after with peace then being restored at Carrington.
