Manchester United predicted XI v Crystal Palace: Robin van Persie to lead attack with Rooney deployed in midfield

Posted by

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…

Manchester United transfer news
Key manchester United midfielder ruled out for the rest of the season

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.
