Crystal Palace vs Manchester United team news and predicted lineup

All the latest team news from the Eagles camp

Crystal Palace and under-pressure boss Patrick Vieira face yet another tough test as they welcome high-flying Manchester United to Selhurst Park on Thursday.

The Eagles have won just one of their previous five Premier League games, though they were unlucky not to come away with at least a point from their most recent clash with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

On the other side, Erik ten Hag currently manages the most in-form side in the English top flight, with his side having won six games on the bounce including last weekend’s controversial derby.

Read on for the latest team news and who we think will start as Palace look to end that run.

Joachim Andersen is a major doubt for the clash, having limped off with a calf injury in the first half of their defeat to Chelsea on Sunday. Though Vieira was unsure as to the severity of the injury, Wednesday might come too soon.

Nathan Ferguson and James McArthur are also set to miss out as they work their way back from injuries sustained earlier in the season.

Beyond that, Vieira is likely to have a full squad to choose from, and he seems to be relatively happy with his team selections, even if the results aren’t following.

“I think we did enough to at least get a point from today”, the Frenchman explained after the game.

“At the moment, it is true that we lost a bit of confidence,” he explained after the Chelsea clash. “We don’t take our chances and have to keep working on that side.

“When you don’t win games, you lose confidence but, on the other side, you tell the players to look at the performances and the performance today was positive.”
