Four things spotted in Man Utd training ahead of Crystal Palace clash as two academy stars called up

Four things spotted in Man Utd training ahead of Crystal Palace clash as two academy stars called up

Here are four things we spotted in training.

Manchester United take on Crystal Palace in the Carabao Cup third round on Tuesday night. Here are four things spotted in training ahead of the encounter.

United, who are the competition holders, take on Palace fresh from having edged past Burnley 1-0 on Saturday night, ending a three-game losing streak in the process.

They will face Roy Hodgson’s injury-hit Palace outfit, who are tenth in the Premier League table, a point and a place below United, but without the likes of Michael Olise, Matheus França and potentially Jefferson Lerma for the cup clash.

While United received a bye for the opening round, Palace came from behind to dispatch Plymouth 4-2, courtesy of a Jean-Philippe Mateta hat-trick.

Despite their poor early season form, United will surely be a tougher test for the Hodgson’s men. Here are four things that have been spotted at Carrington ahead of the match.

Mason Mount returns to training

Mason Mount could be in line for a return to action this week, having trained with the United squad ahead of Tuesday's Carabao Cup tie with Palace.

Mount had been sidelined through injury since a defeat at Tottenham Hotspur in the club’s second Premier League match of the season.

But the England international appears to be stepping up his recovery ahead of the Carabao Cup tie.

Harry Maguire returns to training

Harry Maguire has also been pictured going through his paces at Carrington.

The centre-back missed United’s Champions League 4-3 defeat to Bayern Munich alongside the weekend win at Burnley, with 35-year-old Jonny Evans coming in instead.

Altay Bayindir set to make debut?

Altay Bayindir has been spotted in training and could be set to make his first appearance for United if Erik ten Hag opts to rotate his goalkeepers in the Carabao Cup.

United signed the Turkey international from Fenerbahce for £4.3million on Transfer Deadline Day, with the 25-year-old joining on a four-year contract.

Dan Gore and James Nolan in first-team training

Dan Gore and James Nolan were among several youngsters included in first-team training ahead of the game.

The academy prospects could be selected in Ten Hag's squad for the cup competitions.
