Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has handed starts to Fred and Scott McTominay as Manchester United face a tricky test away at Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace.

Manchester United may not be getting close to extending David De Gea’s deal. But, the Spaniard starts as expected, in goal for United. The back four is pretty much the same as well, with Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof the centre-back pairing while Luke Shaw and Ashley Young are the full-backs.

In midfield, Nemanja Matic’s absence sees an opportunity being provided to Scott McTominay. Fred starts in place of the injured Ander Herrera, with Paul Pogba likely to be assuming a more responsible role in the middle of the park against Crystal Palace.

The attacking lineup is pretty standard. Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez were expected to start the match amidst all the injuries to other key players and the duo has been named in the starting eleven by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. By the looks of it, Diogo Dalot will be the third attacker for United, which is a peculiar but not an unlikely move by the manager.

James Garner and Tahith Chong have been named on the bench and could receive some minutes depending on the situation.
