THE TEAM NEWS

MAN UTD

  • Man Utd could only draw at Wolves on Monday night but they were left to rue Paul Pogba's missed penalty with 22 minutes remaining.
  • Ole Gunnar Solskjaer diffused the controversy around who takes penalties but Rashford could now be set to resume duties after Pogba's miss.
  • Solskjaer was otherwise pleased with the performance of his team on Monday and there is a good chance they will go unchanged against Palace.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Shaw; McTominay, Pogba; James, Lingard, Rashford; Martial

Unavailable: Bailly (Injured), Sanchez (Out of favour)

Doubtful: Fosu-Mensah (Injured)

CRYSTAL PALACE

  • Palace slipped to a 1-0 loss at Sheffield Utd last week and they will have to improve at Old Trafford as they have yet to score a goal so far.
  • Roy Hodgson will not panic despite picking up just one point so far and he may even consider an unchanged team for this match.
  • Schlupp and McCarthy both came off the bench last week and they are pushing for a start with Meyer's place in the team at risk.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Guaita; Ward, Dann, Kelly, Van Aanholt; Milivojevic, McArthur, Meyer; Townsend, Benteke, Zaha

Unavailable: Sakho (Injured), Tomkins (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Even in recent seasons where Man Utd have not enjoyed much success, they have dominated their head-to-head record against Crystal Palace and they will be confident of extending that here. Palace are yet to score and Solskjaer's men will fancy their chances of a clean sheet and three points.
