Crystal Palace v Man Utd: Red Devils trio in contention to return for Premier League season finale

The trio could feature in Ralf Rangnick’s final game in charge of the club at Selhurst Park on Sunday.

Ralf Rangnick could see the return of Luke Shaw, Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford in Manchester United’s final game of the season, the club confirms.

The Red Devils will travel to Selhurst Park to take on Crystal Palace on Sunday with a win securing them a place in next campaign’s Europa League.

Rangnick’s side, who have won only one of their last five league games, could be bolstered with the return of the previously mentioned trio.

Shaw has been absent since the 2 April clash with Leicester City and was expected to miss the remainder of the season due to surgery on his leg.

Shaw is likely to retain his place in the starting XI next season after missing a number of games due to injury in the current campaign.

The left-back had surgery to remove metal bolts from his leg, but trained with his teammates on Tuesday, leading to him potentially featuring against Palace.

Another member of the squad that could feature on Sunday is Jadon Sancho. The winger has been unavailable due to tonsillitis since the Red Devils defeat to Arsenal on 23 April.

The 21-year-old has been a big miss for United down either flank, with his pace and skill being key elements to the club’s attacking phases of play.

Fellow forward Marcus Rashford is also in contention to play at Selhurst Park. The Red Devils no.10 missed their loss to Brighton & Hove Albion on 7 May due to bronchitis.

Sunday’s game against Palace won’t just be United’s last of the campaign, but Rangnick’s final match in charge of the club.

The German has overseen 23 league fixtures since taking over from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in December, winning 10 of them.

Rangnick won’t be leaving Old Trafford however, with the 63-year-old starting a consultancy role with the Red Devils at the end of the season.

He will be working with incoming manager Erik ten Hag in what is expected to be a busy summer for United, while also taking the charge of the Austrian national team.

Ten Hag was announced as the Red Devils’ new boss on 21 April, with the Dutchman signing a three-year deal, with the option for a further year.

The 52-year-old guided Ajax to their second consecutive Eredivisie title this campaign, the third under him, and will be looking to turn United’s fortunes around next season.
