The wonderkid has sat out United’s last three matches in the league…
Read more Manchester United transfer news.
GK) David de Gea
The Spaniard can expect to deal with long balls into his box against Tony Pulis’s Palace outfit, and he’ll be desperate to keep a clean sheet like he did last time out against Arsenal.
David Moyes is set to select the same back four he did against Arsenal, meaning Rafael should get the chance to make marauding runs down the right flank.
DC) Chris Smalling.
Evans is injured, and Phil Jones is doubtful, so we’ll be surprised if Smalling doesn’t get the nod again, alongside Serbian stalwart Nemanja Vidic.
DC) Nemanja Vidic
Vidic’s deal to join Inter Milan come the end of the season is all but wrapped up, but his commitment to United’s cause this season has never been doubted. He can expect many aerial battles with Marouane Chamakh today.
DL) Patrice Evra
The Frenchman could also be leaving United at the end of the season, but with only the remarkably average Alex Buttner to cover him, Evra should retain his place on the left of the back four.
