PHOTO: Louis van Gaal speaks to James Wilson during Manchester United training ahead of Premier League clash v Crystal Palace

James Wilson was training with the Manchester United senior team on Friday ahead of the Premier League encounter against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Manchester United youngster James Wilson was training with the rest of the squad on Friday ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash against Crystal Palace.

The 18-year-old was caught on camera training with the likes of Angel di Maria, Daley Blind, Ander Herrera and Michael Carrick, a photo of which is above.

Wilson is rated as one of the more promising young players in English football and has already made four appearances in the Premier League for the Red Devils.

With star striker Robin van Persie struggling for form at the moment, there have been reports that Wilson should be given a shock start against Palace at Old Trafford on Saturday.

The teenager has yet to make a start in the league under manager Louis van Gaal so far this season, but his youthful vigour and talent makes him a prime candidate to step in for Van Persie against the Eagles.
