Crystal Palace team news and predicted XI vs Manchester United

All the latest team news ahead of the Premier League clash between the two sides

Crystal Palace face a second trip to Old Trafford inside five days as they take on Manchester United in the Premier League, less than a week after being knocked out of the Carabao Cup by the same opponents.

A much-changed Palace side fell to a 3-0 defeat at the hands of the Red Devils, but Roy Hodgson and his side will be hoping to offer a better showing of themselves this time around.

Just a point and a place behind United so far this season, they could leapfrog Erik ten Hag’s side should they manage to inflict back-to-back Premier League home defeats on United, who are looking to string together some form of their own after a tricky start to the season.

This is how we expect Hodgson to set out his side, and the latest team news from Selhurst Park.

Predicted XI

Team News

Roy Hodgson’s side are plagued with injuries as things stand and have been dealt a further blow after Michael Olise suffered a significant setback in his recovery from a hamstring issue last week.

Yet to play this season, the Frenchman is now ‘likely [to] miss Palace’s matches before the October international break’, which include a pair of Premier League ties.

So too is striker Odsonne Edouard, who picked up an injury over the weekend and is expected to be out for up to a month, while Dean Henderson was forced off in the first half of the defeat to Manchester United with what appeared to be a thigh injury.

Even further away is Nathan Ferguson, with the defender only just returning from a thigh injury and may remain sidelined until November despite being back in training.

They could be boosted by the return of summer signing Naouirou Ahamada though, with the midfielder in the final stages of recovery from injury, though there is concern over fellow midfielder Jairo Riedewald, who went off in the second half of the Carabao Cup defeat.
