Manchester United will face off against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Thursday evening hoping to return to winning ways so that they can keep pace with Leicester City and Chelsea in the Premier League’s top 4 race. The Red Devils could only manage to secure an entertaining 2-2 draw versus Southampton at Old Trafford in the last match, which is why they cannot afford to drop any points in this upcoming showdown at South London.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will once again opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and could be forced to make one change to his starting XI for this league clash in midweek.
4-2-3-1 Manchester United Predicted Lineup To Face Crystal Palace
David De Gea will operate in goal for the Mancunian outfit despite shipping in two goals versus the Saints yesterday. Victor Lindelof will continue to play alongside Harry Maguire at the centre of the Red Devils backline as they focus on keeping Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha quiet during the game on Thursday.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka will retain his place at right-back while Diogo Dalot fills in on the other side as a makeshift left-back. Both Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams are significant doubts for this game after they both had picked up injuries in the last match.
Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba will anchor the Man United midfield in midweek as they look to produce a dominant display at the centre of the park. The talented trio of Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes and Mason Greenwood will operate just ahead of them as part of Solskjaer’s attack. Rashford managed to find the back of the net on Monday, which would keep him in good spirits going into this league match versus the Eagles.
Both Fred and Scott McTominay will be available for selection on the bench as they await their opportunity to shine as the impact substitutes if Solskjaer decides to call upon their services.
Anthony Martial got his name on the scoresheet against the Saints. The French striker will be full of confidence and could fancy his chances of exposing the Palace defence with his clever movement and technical prowess.
Odion Ighalo will once again play back-up to Martial on the Man United bench. The Nigerian forward could come on to make an impact in the second half if required.
