Manchester United will be looking to get back to winning ways when they take on Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon. 

United opened the new campaign with an impressive 4-0 rout against Chelsea but they were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw by Wolves at Molineux last weekend after Paul Pogba missed a vital penalty in the second half.

The Frenchman received vile racist abuse on social media after the game but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists the midfielder will come out of it stronger and is ready to start against Palace this weekend.

Roy Hodgson’s side head to Old Trafford having picked up just one point from their opening two matches so the Eagles will be hoping to cause an upset and take a positive result back home to London tomorrow.

Team news

Man Utd will be without Diogo Dalot after Solskjaer confirmed the full-back has been ruled out for a couple of weeks with an unspecified injury while Eric Bailly remains on the treatment table with a serious knee problem.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka will face his former club for the first time since joining United earlier this month while Daniel James will hope he’s done enough to keep his place in the team.

Juan Mata could be given a recall although Andreas Pereira and Jesse Lingard are other options for Solskjaer. Alexis Sanchez isn’t expected to be involved amid rumours linking him with a move to Italy.

Palace have no fresh injury concerns but will still without James Tomkins due to a groin injury while Mamadou Sakho is also still nursing a knee complaint. Gary Cahill could make his debut for the club.

Predicted score

Man Utd 3-0 Crystal Palace: United are unbeaten in their last 22 league games against Crystal Palace and they’ll be confident of extending that run tomorrow. The defence has been improved with the additions of Harry Maguire and Wan-Bissaka and Palace have looked toothless in their opening two games having failed to register a single goal. With Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford in fine form in attack I can see Man Utd easing to a comfortable 3-0 win tomorrow.
