Lindegaard, Vermijl, Blackett, Fletcher, Herrera, Mata, Wilson

Louis van Gaal has chosen to start Robin van Persie against Crystal Palace today and give him another opportunity to re-find his best form, meaning James Wilson has to start from the bench once again.

Daley Blind has been drafted in at centre-back and Michael Carrick makes his first start of the season. The defence is very makeshift but United will have to get on with the players they have available.
