Crystal Palace vs Manchester United LIVE: News, lineups and more tonight

Building something – Erik ten Hag pleads for patience from Man Utd fans

Crystal Palace host Manchester United at Selhurst Park tonight in a Premier League contest that could have serious ramifications for United manager Erik ten Hag, whose side are locked in a tight race for the remaining European places.

Wins for Newcastle and Chelsea saw the Red Devils drop to eighth in the table, where they now sit outside the automatic places for next season’s European campaigns. Victory tonight will send them back into sixth place and keep them in control of their own destiny.

With games against Arsenal and Newcastle on the horizon next week, United cannot afford to drop any points tonight and how they finish this season could play a crucial role in whether the Ten Hag keeps his job in the summer .

Elsewhere, a run of three wins and a draw has lifted Oliver Glasner’s Crystal Palace out of any relegation trouble, with the club now looking to push on and finish as high as possible in the league.

Jadon Sancho still holds ‘great value’ to Man Utd, claims Erik ten Hag

Sancho, who cost United £73m, has not played for them since August and was training with the youth team before being loaned to Dortmund in January.

The England international had a row with Ten Hag, who claimed Sancho had not trained well when explaining his omission from the squad for September’s defeat to Arsenal. This prompted the 24-year-old to write a post on social media which inferred the manager had lied, with the Ten Hag then wanting an apology before picking Sancho again and none forthcoming.

While Sancho’s loan move to Dortmund could bring United up to €7.5m, one of the most expensive signings in their history has played 77 minutes of football for them this season and United could face with much of their large investment.

Bruno Fernandes ‘happy’ at Manchester United as Erik ten Hag hits back at transfer speculation

But the Ten Hag are keen to keep hold of the 29-year-old, who is United’s top scorer with 15 goals this season, as he said the midfielder’s comments had been misconstrued.

“I know he’s very happy to be here,” he said, adding that he “absolutely” wanted Fernandes to stay. He has a contract until 2026, with the club having the option to extend it for another season.

Bruno Fernandes is a doubt for Manchester United and fellow midfielder Scott McTominay is to be similarly assessed. Marcus Rashford remains absent, although Jonny Evans and Anthony Martial are back in training.
