  • Manchester United attacker Anthony Martial has not been included in the Red Devils’ squad for their clash with Crystal Palace this evening.


    The two sides are set to go head to head in a Premier League meeting at Selhurst Park from 8pm, with hosts Palace coming into proceedings on the back of no wins from their last 5 league outings, the latest of which saw the Eagles fall to a hugely-disappointing 1-0 defeat at home to Tottenham courtesy of a late Harry Kane strike.

    Manchester United, meanwhile, bounced back from a shock 1-0 loss away to Newcastle 3 weeks ago with 2 wins and a draw from their last 3 games, including a crucial 2-1 victory over Chelsea last time out.


    The starting lineups of each side were announced a short time ago, with the main talking point for visitors United being the absence of attacker Anthony Martial.

    Reports spread in the English media earlier today that Martial could be set to miss out this evening due to a slight injury, with the Red Devils having since confirmed as much:

    Palace, meanwhile, are not without personnel concerns of their own, with Roy Hodgson’s injury-ravaged squad depleted even further for tonight by the absence of Timothy Fosu-Mensah, who, as part of the terms of his loan agreement at Selhurst Park, is not permitted to face off against parent club United:
