Palace Visit Looming

Palace Visit Looming

Although it`s fair to say that the Carling Cup isn`t our main priority this season, it`s also probably fair to say that United are keen to keep on winning and possibly claim a place in the last four.

Reaching the last eight, it`s fair to say that avoiding the big-names was welcomed when the draw was made as it enable Sir Alex Ferguson to dabble with his squad and give a few youngsters a run out. Whether that would have been the case if we were lining up against City, Arsenal, Chelsea or Liverpool is a debatable subject.

But we shouldn`t, on the eve of the fixture, write off Crystal Palace. The South London club, managed by Dougie Freedman; have started their Championship season well and will be arriving at Old Trafford keen to spring a shock, with Freedman commenting in the media about their impending visit,

"If you look at the teams still left in the competition - Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and United - it shows it isn`t low on the list of priorities."

"For myself it`s a priority for us to win every match and we`ll approach the United game in exactly the same way that we always do."

"We`ve got to go up there a professional manner and make the fans proud of us."

"We want to stay in the competition, it doesn`t matter who you get in the quarter-final."

"It will be a big day for the fans and the club."

"It`s been a long time since we`ve been to a Premier League ground and when it comes along, we`ll give it our best shot."


It has all the makings of a Carling Cup classic don`t you think!
