Entering the Gameweek 3, the Premier League is set to excitement to the next level. Manchester United are back at home in this week as they welcome Crystal Palace.
The Red Devils ground out a 1-1 draw at the Molineux against Wolves, courtesy to a sublime finish from Anthony Martial which was cancelled by a scorcher from Ruben Neves.
Meanwhile, Crystal Palace is looking to grab their first three points after losing 1-0 out to newcomers Sheffield United last week.
David De Gea is set to guard the posts for Manchester United against Crystal Palace. Similarly, Solskjaer will contemplate against changing his back four of Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof and Shaw. It will also be a night of mixed emotions for Wan-Bissaka, who will face his former club for the first time after moving to Old Trafford.
In midfield, Pogba is set to retain his place even after missing the penalty against Wolves. Alongside him, Scott McTominay will be the Reds’ main man tasked with shielding the defence.
Lingard, Martial, James and Rashford could also be set to retain their positions against the Eagles.
Crystal Palace have finally managed to ward off all the suitors for their star man Wilfried Zaha. The Englishman will be a threat to reckon as he visits his former club yet again.
Roy Hodgson has been implementing a 4-4-2 formation, deploying Christian Benteke alongside Zaha as their attacking force. However, the system is yet to bore any fruit given that the Eagles still have weaknesses in defence and midfield. They have failed to find worthy replacements for Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Yohan Cabaye.
There’s a chance Hodgson might play new signings Gary Cahill and Victor Camarasa at Old Trafford alongside James McCarthy who has already made his debut against Sheffield United.
De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Shaw; McTominay, Pogba, Pereira; Lingard, Rashford, Martial
Guaita; Ward, Kelly, Dann, Van Aanholt; Townsend, Milivojevic, McArthur, Meyer; Zaha, Benteke
Manchester United 3-0 Crystal Palace
Manchester United will definitely need to time to breach the Crystal Palace defence. But once they do so, there’s no stopping them. United will also be able to maintain a clean sheet given the presence of Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the lineup.
