CONFIRMED: Manchester United v Crystal Palace line-ups

Old Trafford 3

Here is how Manchester United and Crystal Palace will line up for the Premier League clash at Old Trafford...

Manchester United starting XI: De Gea; Valencia, McNair, Carrick, Shaw; Fellaini, Blind; Januzaj, Rooney, Di Maria; van Persie.

Subs: Lindegaard, Vermijl, Blackett, Fletcher, Herrera, Mata, Wilson. 

Crystal Palace starting XI: Speroni; Mariappa, Delaney, Dann, Ward; Puncheon, Ledley, McArthur, Bolasie; Chamakh, Campbell.

Subs: Hennessey, Kelly, Fryers, McCarthy, Bannan, Doyle, Gayle.

Manchester United will look to bounce back from last week's 1-0 defeat to Manchester City as they welcome Crystal Palace to Old Trafford this afternoon.

The Red Devils remain inconsistent under new manager Louis van Gaal, but have generally been strong at home ever since the opening day defeat to Swansea City.

Three wins and one draw from their four home games have gone some way to making Old Trafford the fortress it once was, and they will be expecting to see off Crystal Palace today.

Neil Warnock's men have won just twice this season, and sit just one place above the relegation zone, level of points with 18th placed Leicester City.

Monday night's 3-1 defeat to Sunderland has Eagles fans concerned over a possible relegation battle, and a trip to Old Trafford isn't likely to improve the mood around Selhurst Park.

United beat Palace 2-0 on both occasions in the Premier League last season, and a similar result would seem likely based on current form.
