Pictures: Man United players in training, preparing for game vs Crysal Palace

Manchester United return this weekend, after a fortnight hiatus due to the pain that is the international break.

Jose Mourinho will be keen to put the poor derby day result behind him, with a game against Crystal Palace taking place at Old Trafford this weekend.

This certainly is a winnable fixture. In fact, it’s matches like these that can shape your season. United simply have to make the Theatre of Dreams a fortress once again, particularly if they harbour any hopes of finishing in the top four this year.

Anyway, before the big encounter, the players have been put through their paces in training, as the squad reunited following the international period.

Thankfully, it looks as though Diogo Dalot, Anthony Martial and Marcos Rojo are all fit and ready to play.

In particular, I’m hoping that Dalot gets his opportunity to play in the first-team. The young right-back has spent the majority of his debut campaign injured so far, but in the two games that he has played, it’s clear that he’s a talented young man with the footballing world at his feet.

As for Martial, he was injured and unfortunately he had to pull out of playing for his country. Thankfully, though, it seems as though that was a precaution rather than anything serious.
