Team News

  • Wayne Rooney and Darren Fletcher will both miss the welcome of Crystal Palace through injury.
  • Phil Jones and Rafael are doubts, with Chris Smalling expected to start at right-back.
  • Marouane Fellaini is set to start start from the bench following his deadline day switch, while Nani, who signed a new contract last week, is likely to join the Belgian.
  • Ian Holloway has a raft of injury problems on his hands ahead of the trip to Old Trafford.
  • Glenn Murray, Yannick Bolasie, Jonathan Parr, Lewis Price, Patrick McCarthy, Jonathan Williams and Jack Hunt are all sidelined, while Jerome Thomas is a doubt.
  • Expect Crystal Palace to remain unchanged from the 3-1 over Sunderland.

Prediction

  • An inability to net in the 1-0 defeat to Liverpool on the back of the 0-0 draw with Chelsea means Manchester United have failed to score in successive Premier League games for the first time since August 2007 and David Moyes will be demanding his side end this baron run.
  • Palace put their first points on the board during the 3-1 win over Sunderland before the international break, but a trip to the Premier League champions is a much more daunting proposition.
  • With the strength in depth available to Moyes, a routine win for United is the likely outcome.

  • Kagawa had illness.

  • kagawa?

  • Andddd Kagawa is not even on the bench again. Seriously criminal.

  • Fellaini played solid. He should have started, Anderson was really bad.

  • @gundam carrick had 9 interceptions at HT you complete clown.

  • carrick with 9 interceptions

  • shame on ref

  • Carrick with a 7.4? 65% pass accuracy, 0 tackles, 0 aerials won and only 13 more touches than Jedinak. Man Utd have hardly created anything either. Surely you mean 6.4.

  • FA united. again

  • 0-0

  • Kagawa? At least mention this great player of the team! I'm really optimistic if the japan is going to be fully? fit make a real impact in the starting XI. De Gea Smalling Rio Vidic Pat Fellaini Carrick Valencia Kagawa Nani van Persie

  • Is Tom Cleverly better than Kagawa or Anderson? Man Utd don't seem to stop amazing me!

  • hmm,Looks like Kagawa isn't doesn't get a mention any where here.

  • 2:0

  • 2-2

  • Little bit of pressure on arms of Mr. Moyes here. Man. Utd. has to pick all 3 points from this "easy" match. I'm expecting more than one goal from Man. Utd.
