United manager David Moyes has taken his squad to the United Arab Emirates for a warm-weather break as they have the weekend off following their early elimination from the FA Cup.

They return to action with an away Premier League game against Crystal Palace on Saturday February 22 after signing off with a goalless draw at Arsenal on Wednesday.

"We'll go away now and have a good five days of warm-weather training which will bring us together and hopefully do us good for the run-in," Cleverley told his club's official website.

"Warm-weather training is good for fitness as well as team bonding and the team spirit you get from having all the lads together. We did it last year and it really helped us - hopefully it'll have the same effect this time."

Cleverley was encouraged by United's performance as they picked up a point against the Gunners at the Emirates.

The England international added: "I think we take confidence from the fact that we didn't really looked like conceding.

"We were solid and it felt like a classic Manchester United away performance where we hit teams on the counter-attack.

"Unfortunately the goal just didn't come for us. They probably had more of the ball but we had the best chance of the game, so I'd say it was a fair result."

I

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

For Foxes' Sake, Call The Pulis...

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
