Manchester United vs Crystal Palace: Predicted XI

by Ben Topliss

David de Gea – Can there really be anyone else?

Antonio Valencia – Has been poor lately but there aren’t a great deal of options at right-back

Phil Jones – Played for the U21s on Monday and looked sharp

Chris Smalling – By far and away United’s best defender this season

Luke Shaw – Shaken off an injury and should be raring to go at Selhurst Park

Daley Blind – With Michael Carrick out for the season, Blind will need to step up

Ander Herrera – Will need to be on top form to give United control in the middle of the park

Marouane Fellaini – Should get in amongst it against Palace

Ashley YoungMemphis Depay hasn’t quite joined yet so Young will keep his place for a while longer

Juan Mata – Angel di Maria hasn’t done much to deserve a starting spot ahead of the Spaniard

Wayne Rooney – Robin van Persie’s penalty miss against West Bromwich Albion may earn him the axe
