Man Utd vs Crystal Palace match preview

Man Utd 1 - Crystal Palace 2 Final Time
Venue: Old Trafford
Date and time: Saturday, September 24, 3.00pm
TV channel: No TV coverage due to 3pm blackout rule.
Roy Hodgson's men are looking for their first win and first goal of the season as they make the trip north to face the Red Devils, following an opening day draw against Everton and a disappointing defeat away to Sheffield United.
Manchester United have started the season with a thumping 4-0 win at Old Trafford against Cheslsea and a draw against Wolves as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to revolutionise his team.
Part of the revolution was the £50m signing of Palace star Aaron Wan-Bissaka this summer. Palace didn't replace the right-back in the transfer window, with Roy Hodgson starting Joel Ward in his place in the opening two fixtures.

Manchester United will be looking to bounce back from their draw against Wolves on Monday, as they host Crystal Palace at Old Trafford this weekend.

United look to have settled into a favoured first eleven, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer starting Daniel James on the right side of attack, Anthony Martial as the central striker and Marcus Rashford from the left.

Scott McTominay has formed a strong partnership with Paul Pogba in the centre of midfield too, with Jesse Lingard operating slightly further up the pitch.

United's opponents Crystal Palace are winless so far this season and fell to defeat in their last fixture, against newly-promoted Sheffield United.

So, what will the final score be this weekend?

And, will Solskjaer stick with the XI he started with at Wolves on Monday?

The manager made one change from his XI for the opener against Chelsea, when Daniel James replaced Andreas Pereira for the 1-1 draw with Wolves on Monday. His line-up at Molineux was the youngest for any club in a top-flight fixture in 2019/20.

It is anticipated that Aaron Wan-Bissaka will feature against his former club this weekend, and the manager should not be short of options for his selection. Juan Mata, Pereira and Mason Greenwood all came off the bench last time out and must be in Ole's thoughts.

Palace are without centre-backs James Tomkins and Mamadou Sakho but former Chelsea man Gary Cahill could make his debut.

Ex-Reds winger Wilfried Zaha seems certain to start for Roy Hodgson's side, who have one point from their two fixtures this season.
