Jose Mourinho’s Red Devils have slipped to third over the weekend but they now a win would solidify them in second place and create a nine point game to fifth-place Chelsea with just nine games to go. A place in the top four is edging closer for Mourinho but after their shock defeat at Newcastle in their last away game, United’s stars will be wary of another costly upset.

In team news Palace start with Christian Benteke and Alexander Sorloth in attack as Wilfried Zaha remains out through injury, with Martin Kelly and Jeffrey Schlupp returning from spells on the sidelines.

United make one change from the team which beat Chelsea last weekend as Jesse Lingard replaces Anthony Martial who isn’t involved in the 18-man squad.
