Manchester United will welcome Crystal Palace at Old Trafford this Saturday as they look to secure another positive result in the Premier League. The Red Devils managed to earn a 3-0 win over the Eagles in the EFL Cup earlier this week which should keep them in high spirits ahead of this clash at the Theatre of Dreams.
Erik ten Hag will opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to make a few tweaks to his first XI for this game. Rasmus Hojlund will lead the line for the Mancunian outfit on the attacking end of the pitch.
4-2-3-1 Manchester United Predicted Lineup To Face Crystal Palace
Andre Onana will function in goal for Man United after keeping a clean sheet in his last outing. Victor Lindelof will play alongside Lisandro Martinez, who is a major doubt for this game, on the defensive end of the field if the Argentine can pass a late fitness test.
Diogo Dalot will get a chance to impress as the right-back while Sergio Reguilon hopes to catch the eye as the left-back. Both of them need to be at their best if Man United are to limit the chances Crystal Palace create on the counter.
Jonny Evans will offer cover for the defensive positions on the bench.
Christian Eriksen will play alongside Casemiro at the centre of ten Hag’s midfield if the Danish talent can recover in time from his illness.
The talented trio of Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes and Facundo Pellistri will operate just ahead of them as part of Man United’s attack. All three of them need to move the ball well if the Red Devils are to create enough chances to win this clash at Old Trafford.
Scott McTominay is a significant concern ahead of this game as he is suffering from an illness as well.
Rasmus Hojlund will lead the line for the Mancunian giants in the final third. He was rested in midweek and would be fresh for this game.
Anthony Martial will be named on the bench as he waits for his chance to make an impact in the second 45 minutes if needed.
