MANCHESTER UNITED will need to readjust their focus on chasing a Premier League top four spot when they entertain Crystal Palace THIS SATURDAY.
The Red Devils comfortably booked their spot in the Carabao Cup final after thumping Nottingham Forest 5-0 on aggregate.
And it now means that Erik Ten Hag could potentially guide United to their first trophy since 2017 in less than a season in charge.
However, the Dutchman will be determined for his side to get back on track in the league after they suffered a damming 3-2 defeat to high-flying Arsenal last time out.
But Michael Olise’s stunning stoppage time free-kick proved that Palace are willing to fight until the bitter end.

Is Man Utd vs Crystal Palace on TV?

What is the team news?
Erik Ten Hag would have been gutted to hear that Christian Eriksen is set to be out until April due to an ankle injury.
Donny van de Beek and Scott McTominay have also been ruled out of the Palace clash.
However, Jadon Sancho and Anthony Martial both made returns to the squad against Nottingham Forest after lengthy spells out.
And January signing Marcel Sabitzer is in line to make his debut for the Red Devils.
Elsewhere, Patrick Vieira received a huge blow as talisman Wilfried Zaha could be facing up to six weeks out with a hamstring injury.
James McArthur (groin) and Nathan Ferguson (foot) are set to miss out too, but Arsenal loanee Albert Sambi-Lokonga could make his first start in a Eagles shirt.
