Manchester United train ahead of their Premier League clash with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday

Robin van Persie and Juan Mata appeared to be in good spirits as Manchester United trained ahead of their Premier League clash with Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The Red Devils are looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League after slumping to three straight defeats in the top flight in recent weeks.

Louis van Gaal’s side were put through their paces at United’s Carrington training base on Friday as the Red Devils aim to take a step closer to Champions League qualification with victory at Selhurst Park against Alan Pardew’s men.

Also pictured in action were the likes of Radamel Falcao and Wayne Rooney as United prepared to travel down to London to take on the Eagles.

United head into Saturday’s clash in fourth place in the Premier League table and four points ahead of fifth-placed Liverpool heading into their final three games of the campaign.

Here are some of the best pictures from Friday morning’s training session at Carrington.
