David Moyes is hoping that his Manchester United squad will reap the rewards of their warm-weather break in the latter stages of the season.

The Red Devils jetted out of the country after last week’s goalless draw at Arsenal to make the most of some rare days off ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash at Crystal Palace.

I’m sure it will benefit the players, having the chance to relax

And Moyes is sure that the Red Devils will feel the benefits of their break ahead of the demanding final months of the campaign.

“It was great that we had some time together with the players – the first time I’ve really had the chance to have a few days with the lads,” said Moyes.

“We trained and had some relaxation time as well, so it was good. You hope you get some benefit from it. I’m sure it will benefit the players, having the chance to relax.

“We’d have rather been in the FA Cup, let me tell you that, but we weren’t so the next thing we had to do was get them ready for the 12 remaining games.”
