Early Team News: Jose Mourinho confirms key pair will start vs Crystal Palace

Manchester United Football Club return to action today, as Jose Mourinho gets his side ready to take on a Crystal Palace side who, on their day, can be threatening to anyone.

Before the game, the self-proclaimed Special One has done something somewhat out of the ordinary, by confirming two starters for the showdown at Old Trafford.

According to @ManUtd, Mourinho told reporters that both Anthony Martial and Marouane Fellaini will start in the game that United simply have to win.

Coming into this one on the back of that poor derby day defeat, nothing less than three points will suffice. United need to get back on the right track, and winning this one in convincing fashion would send out the perfect message to the sides above us in the table.

Martial has been by far our best goal source this term, we’ll certainly need that to continue in this one. Then, you have Fellaini. I’d argue that the man from Belgium has been our most consistent midfielder. He always puts a shift in for the team and you’re always going to get a solid 6 or 7/10 performance.
