Goal Scorer:

Crystal Palace
Oliver Glasner has greeted positive updates on the team news front ahead of his side’s latest fixture. Against Manchester United on Monday, the Crystal Palace manager will be bereft of the services of five first-team players.

Glasner will greet the returns of Eberechi Eze and Marc Guehi, with the duo recovering from their respective knee injuries. However, Sam Johnstone (elbow), Rob Holding (hamstring), Matheus Franca (groin), Jefferson Lerma (thigh), and Cheick Doucoure (Achilles) remain on the sidelines.

Guehi will unlikely feature in the starting eleven, considering the Eagles do not have much to play for this season. However, he should appear off the bench, with Nathaniel Clyne, Joachim Andersen, and Chris Richards forming the central defensive unit. Dean Henderson will take his spot between the sticks, with Crystal Palace lining up in a 3-4-3 formation in front of him.

As for the midfield unit, Adam Wharton and Will Hughes should pair up in the middle of the park. Daniel Munoz and Tyrick Mitchell will be the two wing-backs, aiming to provide the width in the final third. Finally, Jean-Philippe Mateta will spearhead the Crystal Palace attack against Manchester United, with Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise completing the numbers in the attack.

Probable Lineup (3-4-3): Henderson; Clyne, Andersen, Richards; Munoz, Wharton, Hughes, Mitchell; Olise, Mateta, Eze

Manchester United
Unlike his counterpart in the Crystal Palace dugout, Erik ten Hag has new issues hampering his preparations ahead of the trip to Selhurst Park. The Manchester United manager might be without as many as 12 first-team players.

Harry Maguire is the latest absentee, with the former Manchester United captain picking up a muscle injury in training. The English international has joined Luke Shaw (hamstring), Lisandro Martinez (calf), Tyrell Malacia (knee), Raphael Varane (muscle injury), Victor Lindelof (thigh), and Willy Kambwala (knock) on the sidelines.

Meanwhile, Erik ten Hag is sweating over the fitness of Jonny Evans, Scott McTominay, Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford, and Anthony Martial. Bruno Fernandes, McTominay, and Evans might be fit enough to start, while Rashford and Martial might find themselves in the matchday squad.

Andre Onana will take his usual spot between the sticks, with Manchester United lining up in a 4-2-3-1 formation in front of him against Crystal Palace. The backline should feature Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Casemiro, Evans, and Diogo Dalot.

As for the midfield unit, McTominay should pair up with Kobbie Mainoo in the double pivot in the middle of the park. Bruno Fernandes will reprise his usual no. 10 role, with Antony and Alejandro Garnacho being the two wide attackers. Finally, Rasmus Hojlund will spearhead the attack for the away side.

Probable Lineup (4-2-3-1): Onana; Wan-Bissaka, Casemiro, Evans, Dalot; McTominay, Mainoo; Antony, Bruno Fernandes, Garnacho; Hojlund
Prediction: Crystal Palace 1-1 Manchester United
