Manchester United continue their Premier League campaign with a home game against Roy Hodgson’s’ Crystal Palace this weekend.
For Ole Gunnar Solskjaer it’s about keeping the momentum rolling. Although the result was somewhat disappointing on Monday night, spirits in that dressing room will be high.
The Eagles provide the Red Devils with a different test. No doubt our visitors will look to sit in and try to hit us on the counter. It’s down to United to break them down through their craft, creativity, guile and speed. Often, it’s the latter that is the most important…
Check out our speedy predicted Man United XI vs Crystal Palace:
David de Gea obviously continues in between the sticks. The Spaniard is yet to sign a new deal at Old Trafford, though he’s certainly been back at his best to start this campaign.
United’s back four has now become a formality. Luke Shaw plays as left-back while ex-Palace man Aaron Wan-Bissaka is proving his talents over on the opposite side. Harry Maguire has started his Reds career excellently alongside an ever-improving Victor Lindelof.
In the midfield, Scott McTominay will continue to sit at the base – allowing Paul Pogba to maraud forward and impact the play through his sheer brilliance. Juan Mata will bring that bit of ingenuity and craft to a quick United front three.
Anthony Martial has scored two in two, he’ll lead the line again. Marcus Rashford will play from off the left while Mason Greenwood will get a first start of the season from the right-hand side.
