Jeffrey Schlupp wants Crystal Palace to move on from their recent disappointment and target their next game against Manchester United.

Palace began their season with a draw against Everton and a 1-0 loss to Sheffield United.

Schlupp expressed satisfaction in making a return to the pitch but has now shifted his focus for the big game against United.

"I've been working hard behind the scenes to get fit to try and help the boys. But it wasn't the best result or performance we wanted but on a personal note it's good to be back fit.

"I knew it was going to be a difficult game, and it didn't go the way we wanted it to. And when the game is like that it is a bit difficult to get into the pace of it and get going. It was physical but we learn from these things and move on." He told Eagles TV

On the coming game, he said: "We want to put things right as soon as we can and that's [Manchester United away on Saturday] is our next opportunity so we are going to go there ready and try and cause them so problems and try and win the game of course."
