Manchester United are still to secure a spot in the top four, and will be after three vital points when they travel to Selhurst Park on Saturday evening to take on Crystal Palace.
Both sides are without a win in their last three domestic fixtures, and Louis van Gaal knows victory won’t be easy against Alan Pardew’s men.
Take a look at how we think the Red Devils will line up for their trip to face the Eagles…
GK – David de Gea
A certain starter. The Spaniard has been the best keeper in the league by a mile. It’s no wonder Real Madrid are chasing his signature.
RB – Antonio Valencia
Albeit not the most reliable defensively; the Ecuadorian has begun to make the position his own. He will have to be at his best to compete with tricky winger Yannick Bolasie.
RCB – Phil Jones
Set to make his return to the starting line-up, Jones has been absent since the victory over neighbours Manchester City.
LCB – Chris Smalling
The England international has impressed in the second half of the season – earning himself a new contract – and looks to finally be settling into the centre-back position for the Red Devils.
LB – Daley Blind
With Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo and Rafael all out injured, Louis van Gaal is set to be forced to play the midfielder in the defensive position. A huge test for the Netherlands international.
