Manchester United play host to Crystal Palace tomorrow, and Van Gaal’s side simply must win this game. Having been beaten last time out, we need to string a run of wins together and start climbing up the table rather quickly. This is the last game before yet another international break, so it’d be a good time to pick up a win.
Our injury-hit squad is depleted, particularly in the defensive area of the field. With no senior centre-back fit and ready to go, it looks like Michael Carrick and Paddy McNair will deputise.
If you believe reports, they’ll also be a start for James Wilson, with Robin van Persie being dropped.
De Gea; Valencia, Carrick, McNair, Shaw; Blind, Fellaini, Herrera; Di Maria, Rooney Wilson
