Manchester United play Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

Ralf Rangnick was appointed as the Reds' interim manager earlier this week and the German will take charge of United for the first time this weekend. Rangnick was in the stands on Thursday night as United overcame a slow start to beat Arsenal 3-2.

"They were at that time lacking confidence, which is normal after the last couple of weeks with having lost that many games and conceded that many goals," Rangnick said when asked for his thoughts on United's performance versus Arsenal.

The Premier League leaders, Manchester City, have played one more game but they're currently 14 points ahead of United.

Regarding team news for Palace, Cristiano Ronaldo, Nemanja Matic and Aaron Wan-Bissaka are in the squad. Paul Pogba, Raphael Varane and Edinson Cavani remain sidelined while Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial weren't spotted arriving at the Lowry Hotel on Saturday.

Four things spotted in Rangnick's first training session

Manchester United will be looking to make a winning start to life under new interim manager Ralf Rangnick when he takes charge for the first time against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Sunday.

United, who got back to winning ways with a thrilling 3-2 win over Arsenal on Thursday evening, installed the experienced German coach as their new manager on a six-month deal on Monday, following the recent departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Following his first meeting with the local and national media, Rangnick took training at Carrington for the very first time, as he began to put plans in place for Sunday's tussle with Palace.

But what happened during the German's first trainin session as United's interim manager?

Below, MEN Sport has picked out four things we spotted from Friday's session.

Why Manchester United's game vs Crystal Palace is not on TV

Manchester United will be looking to make a winning start to life under interim manager Ralf Rangnick when they welcome Crystal Palace to Old Trafford this afternoon, kick-off 2:00pm.

The Reds, who have won just one of their last four meetings with Palace, will be hoping to make the perfect start to life under the German, who was unveiled to the media on Friday, and build on Thursday evening's 3-2 victory over Arsenal.

Goals from Cristiano Ronaldo (2) and Bruno Fernandes sealed a much-needed win for United, meaning they will head into this afternoon's tussle with the Londoners looking to register back-to-back league wins for the first time since September.

Whilst United's last four home games in the Premier League have been screened live on TV, either on Sky Sports, BT Sport or Amazon Prime Video, today's clash with Palace will not be available to watch live on subscription TV in the UK.
