Crystal Palace boss Allardyce warns Mourinho's Man Utd: Expect a battle!


Crystal Palace boss Sam Allardyce says they’ll play to win on Sunday against Manchester United.

United manager Jose Mourinho has joked that he would appreciate Allardyce telling his players to ‘go soft’ on Sunday.

But the Palace boss stated: “We will play the fittest team we’ve got but I think there will be no Andros Townsend because he’s been playing with an Achilles problem.

Yohan Cabaye is still feeling his foot but it looks like James Tomkins is OK. There will be some changes to the team but my team want to play at Old Trafford, they don’t want me to leave them out.

“My lads want to go there and finish the season off in one of the best venues in the world of football. And whether Jose plays a weakened side or not, it will always be a difficult task because even if they are younger players at Manchester United, they are definitely very talented. We have a job to do and hopefully we can go there and do it.

“There will be some changes to our side but the players are really looking forward to performing on one of the biggest stages in football.”
