Confirmed line-up: Crystal Palace vs United

Bruno Fernandes will miss the first game of his senior career through injury as Manchester United face Crystal Palace tonight.

Marcus Rashford and Scott McTominay also failed to make the squad despite hopes that they may have recovered from injury in time.

Harry Maguire was injured in traning yesterday and also misses out. He will be out for three weeks and is doubtful for the FA Cup final.

The only good news is that Jonny Evans has recovered from injury and can play.

Andre Onana will be in goal.

The back four will be Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Diogo Dalot, Evans and Casemiro.

Kobbie Mainoo and Christian Eriksen will be the holding midfielders.

Mason Mount will take Fernandes’ place and start his first game since November in the number 10 position.

Alejandro Garnacho and Antony are the wide men, with Rasmus Hojlund up front.

Other than Sofyan Amrabat and Tom Heaton, those are the only senior players available as this season’s injury curse ploughs new depths.

Raphael Varane, Victor Lindelof, Tyrell Malacia, Lisandro Martinez, Luke Shaw, and Anthony Martial also all remain sidelined, although the last three have all resumed training.

Joining Amrabat and Heaton on the bench are Altay Bayindir, Harry Amass, Amad, Ethan Wheatley, Louis Jackson, Habeeb Ogunneye and Toby Collyer.

United desperately need three points tonight as even their hopes of Europa League football are starting to fade due to late runs of good form from Newcastle and Chelsea.

Kick off at Selhurst Park is at 8pm.
