Manchester United handed triple boost ahead of Europe-deciding tie
Manchester United have been handed a triple boost ahead of their final game of the 2021/22 Premier League season.
The Red Devils have been without Luke Shaw, Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford for a few weeks now.
However, in a statement put out by Man United on Tuesday, it looks as though all three could be set for a return after being spotted in training:
“Interim manager Ralf Rangnick will take charge of the side for the last time, before handing over the reins to incoming boss Erik ten Hag, and he could be able to call upon Luke Shaw again,” United said.
“The left-back had appeared to be ruled out for the remainder of the campaign when having surgery to remove metal bolts from his leg. However, he was back out on the grass on Tuesday with his colleagues, after being absent since the draw with Leicester City on 2 April.
“Fellow England internationals Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford could also return to the matchday squad after illness.”

Crystal Palace vs Manchester United
Manchester United head into the game knowing they must win to guarantee a spot in next season’s Europa League.
The Red Devils are currently sat 6th in the Premier League. However, West Ham are just two points adrift.
And as West Ham have a 10 better goal difference, even a draw vs Crystal Palace could mean United fall down into the Europa Conference League spot.
As for Crystal Palace, they have little left to play for this season.
