Welcome to Crystal Palace v Man Utd

Palace welcome Man Utd to Selhurst Park tonight with the visitors looking to make it ten wins in a row in all competitions.

Injury was added to insult for Palace in their defeat to Chelsea, as ever-present centre-back Joachim Anderson came off with a calf problem in the first half, although Viera is unsure of the severity of the issue just yet.

Anderson joins long-term absentees James McArthur and Nathan Ferguson in the treatment room, but Viera has no other concerns to worry about this evening, where Wilfried Zaha will line up against his former employers.

James Tompkins is expected to come in to replace Anderson in the centre of defence.

Man Utd did not come out of their clash with Man City unscathed either, as Anthony Martial had to come off at half-time, while Marcus Rashford took a knock to the hip but was able to complete the game.

Donny van de Beek, Axel Tuanzebe and Jadon Sancho remain out of contention for the visitors.

Diogo Dalot is unlikely to return from a hamstring injury just yet, meaning a start for ex-Eagles right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka should be in order.

Antony can expect a recall to the frontline if Martial’s injury keeps him out, while Lisandro Martinez could be in line for a start after building his fitness since the World Cup in the last few weeks.
