Manchester United managed to share points with Crystal Palace last night in their premier league clash. The red devils failed to reignite hopes of catching up with arch rivals Manchester City. The Cityzens are fourteen points above the red devils. This is a huge gap for Manchester United to narrow it down.
This is giving into considerations the current top form of Guardiola's squad. Manchester United faced Crystal Palace last night without some of their key players. These include David Degea, Donny Van de beek and Paul Pogba. David Degea has been reported to be on leave for private matters.
However, emerging reports indicate that the main reason the Spanish skipper has been given leave is because his wife Edurne Garcia is expecting to give birth soon. It is common for football clubs to give short leave to players in the case that their fiancees are expectant.
This has enabled United's second choice goalkeeper Dean Henderson to get chance to start in the premier league. Henderson has undoubted capabilities in the pitch. The player managed to give a stunning last minute save against Palace.
