Manchester United v Crystal Palace: Predicted line-up

Published 2 Comments

It could be an unfortunate time for Crystal Palace to visit Old Trafford, as Manchester United will be looking for someone to vent their frustrations on.

The Premier League champions did not have an ideal transfer window and their deadline day dealings were panned by no few fans, with complaints that a haphazard approach to new recruits left them with little to show for when the window slammed shut.

Marouane Fellaini's £27.5million switch from Everton was the big arrival at the Red Devils and the negativity surrounding incomings will likely spur him on to prove his transfer was justified, proving to the Old Trafford faithful that he can become a hero of theirs with a super debut.

David Moyes will also want to prove a point to his critics with the visit of newly promoted Palace, the point that no major component of the side that, eventually, cantered to the title last season has been lost, only enhanced, and that they are more than capable of maintaining their winning form.

Phil Jones will be out though and a right-back replacement will be needed, while Wayne Rooney will have an assessment ahead of the match and could play a part - a starting spot is unlikely however.

With all this in mind, here is the GMS's Manchester United predicted starting XI:

De Gea; Rafael,Ferdinand, Vidic, Evra; Carrick, Fellaini, Nani, Kagawa, Welbeck; Van Persie
