Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney start for Manchester United in their Premier League match against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford.

Ander Herrera, making his return from injury, starts on the bench. It appears the midfield is made up of Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata and Morgan Schneiderlin, with Marcus Rashford completing the attacking trident.

David de Gea keeps his place in goal, and United have a defence of Antonio Valencia, Chris Smalling, Daley Blind and Matteo Darmian.

Alongside Herrera on the bench are Sergio Romero, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Marcos Rojo, Marouane Fellaini, Memphis and Ashley Young.

United will be looking to take advantage of Manchester City's draw against Newcastle United last night, and put pressure on Arsenal who are currently in fourth place, who play on Thursday night. Of course, the caveat is that United could, possibly, keep hold of Louis van Gaal if they somehow finish fourth in the league.
