4-2-3-1: Manchester United’s much-changed predicted XI vs Palace – youngsters galore involved

Manchester United’s final Premier League game of the season is here. Jose Mourinho’s men host Crystal Palace in a fixture that takes place just four days before the biggest game of our campaign; the Europa League final against Ajax, out in Stockholm.

Jose Mourinho has already promised that a whole host of youngsters will be involved, and that certainly makes a lot of sense as the manager will be keen to avoid any fresh injury concerns.

In goal, we have our first debutant; Joel Pereira. The Portuguese youngster will be keen to impress the manager, and hopefully, he’ll get a fair amount of shots sent in his direction so we can see exactly how capable he is.

The back four looks young. Axel Tuanzebe will play at right-back once again, with Demetri Mitchell coming into the left-back spot for his first ever United appearance. Eric Bailly will play as he’s suspended for the Europa League final. Chris Smalling will also start.

Paul Pogba should be back and he needs to get some minutes under his belt after missing the last couple of matches. Scott McTominay will start alongside the talented Frenchman, with Juan Mata just in front of them.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan hasn’t impressed recently, and this game will pose a last opportunity for him to earn a place in the final starting XI, the same can be said for Anthony Martial. Matty Willock, a talented attacker, will play on the right-wing.
