Starting XI: Manchester United v Crystal Palace – Barclays Premier League 2015/16

Manchester United return to Barclays Premier League football at Old Trafford this evening, this time against Crystal Palace. Back in October, both sides met at Selhurst Park in a frustrating 0-0 draw, which caused a lot of unhappy supporters. This time around, United are not really better off as scoring goals still seems to be a problem, but the Red Devils are in the semi-final of the Emirates FA Cup against Everton at Wembley on Saturday, with Palace facing Watford a day later. Both teams will have their eye on the FA Cup matches, but neither can afford to take their eye off this match, with United needing a win to keep pressure on Manchester City and Arsenal, who live five and four points better than United in third and fourth place respectively. Arsenal play West Bromwich Albion on Thursday evening, meaning a win this evening will add to the pressure already on Arsene Wenger ahead of a must-win encounter. Come on UNITED!
