TEAM NEWS

Ander Herrera (foot) and Adnan Januzaj (hamstring) are both doubts for United, who will also be without Bastian Schweinsteiger (knee) and Luke Shaw, who is a month away from his projected return from a broken leg. Wayne Rooney lasted just over an hour against Villa on his first start since recovering from a knee injury and is expected to start.

Dann picked up a foot injury against Arsenal and could be rested, with Dwight Gayle (gluteus) unlikely to be risked. James McArthur (ankle), Marouane Chamakh (groin) and Kwesi Appiah (knee) are sidelined.

PREDICTED LINEUPS

Man Utd XI: De Gea; Darmian, Smalling, Blind, Rojo; Fellaini, Schneiderlin; Martial, Mata, Rooney; Rashford

Crystal Palace XI: Hennessey; Ward, Dann, Delaney, Souare; Cabaye, Jedinak; Puncheon, Bolasie, Zaha; Wickham

PREDICTION: Man Utd 2-1 Crytsal Palace
