Confirmed Starting XI: Lukaku back in the team; Lingard, Mata and Martial support the attack against Palace

Manchester United will be pitted against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon. It is going to be a tough month and a bit for United, who in the next two and a half weeks will see their fate in the UEFA Champions League, also playing four matches in the league, which could see them start to climb into the right part of the table, if they win the matches, as many will expect them to.

The final international break of 2018 has now ended, which saw United end their winning run after a 4-1 defeat to Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium. Jose Mourinho will be seeking to return to winning ways against Palace, a team who have not won any of their last six matches; five defeats and one draw. That means nothing at this moment for United though, who seem to have similar problems themselves; which team will turn up!

Manchester United:

De Gea;

Darmian, Smalling, Lindelof, Young;

Matic, Pogba;

Lingard, Mata, Martial;

Lukaku

Substitutes:

Grant; Jones, Valencia; Fred, Fellaini; Sanchez, Rashford

After beating Everton, Bournemouth and Juventus, the Manchester derby was a match where United had a good chance to claim something. However, with Romelu Lukaku not performing and Paul Pogba on the sidelines, the club suffered and failed to take City on. This seemed to end the good feeling which was gained, especially after beating Juventus in Turin. United have a decent festive period coming up, aside from facing Arsenal at Old Trafford and Liverpool at Anfield.

On Tuesday, United will entertain the Young Boys from Bern in the Champions League, a chance to put one foot in the door of a place in the last 16 stage of the competition, the minimum United need to be doing at this stage of the season. The final game in the group will come a fortnight later, facing Valencia in Spain. Other than the Champions League matches, after Palace, United will face Southampton (A), Arsenal (H), Fulham (H), Liverpool (A), Cardiff (A), Huddersfield Town (H), and Bournemouth (H).
