Crystal Palace have more players in the England squad than Manchester United after Gareth Southgate called up defender Tyrick Mitchell


Tyrick Mitchell’s call-up now means there are more Crystal Palace players in the England squad than there are Manchester United stars.

The 22-year-old was signed by Gareth Southgate after injuring several Three Lions members.

As well as him potentially playing for England are Eagles centre-back Marc Guehi and midfielder Conor Gallagher, who is on loan at Selhurst Park from Chelsea.

They will be hoping to make a good impression for Southgate as the Three Lions take on Switzerland on Saturday before hosting the Ivory Coast on March 29.

Both games take place at Wembley Stadium and are live on talkSPORT.

With three Eagles players in the squad, it’s a testament to how successful they have been this season in earning an England call-up and what Patrick Viera has done to develop their games this season.

Mitchell’s call-up also means there are now more Palace players in Southgate’s squad than Man United.

Only Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw made it, with Marcus Rashford in poor form. Meanwhile, Jadon Sancho has struggled this season despite the good run he has been producing lately.

With age and potential on their side, the future looks very bright for the Eagles trio.

Since breaking into the first team last season, Mitchell has become one of the top names on the team roster.

He has started every game this season in the Premier League, helping them keep eight clean sheets and seeing them progress to the FA Cup semi-finals.

Gallagher, meanwhile, has proven to be one of the signings of the season with the number of offensive contributions he has produced so far.

With eight goals and three assists in 25 league games, Gallagher has been a huge signing, and one that Chelsea fans will be eager to see when he returns from loan.

And Guehi, who came under a lot of pressure after signing for the Blues last summer for £20m, has also done well.

Guehi has been nearly ubiquitous, missing just one league game this season. He has been part of every side in England since his Under-16 days.
