4-3-3: Manchester United XI vs Crystal Palace – ‘Schmidfield’ start

Manchester United return to the bread and butter of the Premier League after their game against Middlesbrough last night, and it doesn’t get any easier for the reds as a tricky trip to Selhurst Park to take on Alan Pardew’s solid looking Crystal Palace side is on the cards.

Louis van Gaal will be hoping for another three points in a tricky away game since the last road trip against Everton was so productive. I expect to see a few more familiar faces return to the line-up too.

Wayne Rooney will start up front with a solid three of Anthony Martial, Ander Herrera and Juan Mata in-behind him, with a midfield two of Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin protecting the back four.

Marcos Rojo has certainly earned his chance to continue in the side, with Matteo Darmian playing in the right-back spot after Antonio Valencia’s injury. Chris Smalling and Phil Jones seem to be forming a nice partnership so it’d be daft to break that up.
