CONFIRMED: Bailly, Carrick, Herrera, Mata and Pogba start against Palace

Manchester United face Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in the Premier League this evening. United got back to winning ways in the league on Sunday at Old Trafford, beating Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 with Henrikh Mkhitaryan scoring a great goal, but then getting injured, being stretchered off and will surely miss a few matches with Jose Mourinho hopeful that he will be back to play during the Christmas period. United will also lose out on the services of Antonio Valencia for this match after he accumulated five yellow cards this season, his last against Spurs on Sunday. Last season, United and Palace drew 0-0 at Selhurst Park on the 31st October, which was a poor game of football at times, actually most of the time.

United did beat Palace at Old Trafford 2-0 in the league last season, also beating them at Wembley in the Emirates FA Cup final, winning 2-1 with Juan Mata scoring in the 81st minute, just three minutes after Palace took the lead and Jesse Lingard scoring the winner in extra time, with ten minutes remaining. Tonight’s match could be make or break for both teams with Mourinho looking to guide his side to another victory heading into Saturday’s match away to West Bromwich Albion and Alen Pardew looking to remain unbeaten in December, following two turbulent months where six league matches were lost in October and November. Here are the starting XI and list of substitutes for both teams this evening.

Manchester United:

De Gea;

Bailly, Jones, Rojo, Blind;

Carrick, Herrera;

Mata, Pogba, Rooney;

Ibrahimovic

Substitutes:

Romero; Darmian; Lingard, Young, Fellaini, Schweinsteiger; Rashford

Crystal Palace:

Kelly, Dann, Delaney, Ward;

McArthur, Flamini;

Benteke

Substitutes:

Speroni; Fryers; Townsend, Ledley, Husin, Wan-Bissaka; Campbell
