Confirmed Manchester United XI vs Crystal Palace – Fred keeps place in team

Erik ten Hag has opted for a strong Manchester United side, as per usual, to face Crystal Palace at Old Trafford.

David de Gea starts between the sticks with Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw occupying the full-back positions.

The manager is taking no chances at the back by naming his strongest defensive partnership, with Lisandro Martinez alongside Raphael Varane.

Casemiro starts in midfield along with Fred, so Marcel Sabitzer will have to wait a little longer for his debut. The Austrian could make an appearance from the bench. Ahead of Casemiro and Fred, we will see Bruno Fernandes pull the strings in the final third.

We need to see end product from our attackers today. Antony is on the right, Wout Weghorst will try to cause havoc centrally, while Marcus Rashford is the man in-form at the moment – attacking from the left.
