Manchester United lost their previous Premier League game against our bitter rivals Manchester City, but we have a chance to bounce back after the international break.
United face Crystal Palace at Old Trafford, and the Eagles would look to make things difficult for Jose Mourinho’s men. Going into the game week, make use of our free football tips from expert tipsters if you are the kind who would like to make a bet in favour of Mourinho’s men.
The away side might be 16th in the Premier League but they have some quality players in the attacking third. United need a win to put pressure on the top four, and here is our predicted line-up for the Red Devils.
Predicted Manchester United XI
Manager: Jose Mourinho
David de Gea (GK)
The Spaniard hasn’t been great for the club this season, but he still is one of the best in the world and will start on Saturday.
Ashley Young (RB)
The Englishman doesn’t play as a winger any more but does a decent job as a right-back these days.
Victor Lindelof (CB)
The Swede might not be the best defender in the league but seems to be doing well for the Red Devils.
Chris Smalling (CB)
Jose Mourinho seems to prefer Smalling and Lindelof at the back, and it seems unlikely he will change that on Saturday.
Luke Shaw (LB)
The English left-back could start for the Red Devils on Saturday after pulling out of international duty.
Nemanja Matic (CM)
The Serbian has to have a great game going up against the likes of Luka Milivojevic in the midfield.
Paul Pogba (CM)
The French midfielder didn’t have a great international break as France missed out on the Nations League finals, but will start for us on Saturday.
Ander Herrera (CM)
Herrera might not be the best-attacking midfielder or defensive midfielder we have but his running and energy bring a lot to the table for United.
Juan Mata (RW)
The Spaniard has been excellent in the past month or so, and even if the likes of Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard are fit, the former Chelsea star should get the nod to start.
Alexis Sanchez (ST)
Sanchez’s Manchester United career hasn’t taken off yet, but the Chilean could play for the Red Devils on Saturday.
Anthony Martial (LW)
Martial seems to be the only forward who is in great form and must start against Palace on Saturday.
