Crystal Palace predicted lineup vs Manchester United - Premier League

Crystal Palace welcome Manchester United to Selhurst Park in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Patrick Vieira has led Palace to more goals scored, far fewer conceded and a superior points total compared to last season's 14th-placed finish with one game still to play in an encouraging campaign.

Here's the XI Vieira may deploy for one last hurray of the 2021/22 season.

Jack Butland (GK) - With an unspecified issue denying Vicente Guaita a starting berth in Palace's past three matches, the former Stoke shot-stopper may be called upon once again.

Nathaniel Clyne (RB) - The Palace academy graduate has defeated Manchester United in three different competitions down the years.

Joachim Andersen (CB) - An integral ball-playing asset as Vieira has overhauled Palace's style in possession this season.

Marc Guehi (CB) - Palace's Players' Player of the Season has shaken off an ankle problem to surely ensure he will appear in every Selhurst Park match this campaign.

Tyrick Mitchell (LB) - An ever-present until April, a niggling calf injury has scuppered Mitchell's perfect record but the club's Young Player of the Season has recovered in recent weeks.

Conor Gallagher (CM) - Granted a rare rest for Thursday's chaotic reverse against Everton, the Chelsea loanee is expected to make a swift return to the starting XI.

Will Hughes (CM) - The former Watford midfielder has lost six of his seven career meetings with Manchester United but is yet to face them as an Eagle.

Jeffrey Schlupp (CM) - With four goals this term, Schlupp has equalled his career-high tally of Premier League strikes across a season.

Jordan Ayew (RW) - Had Anthony Taylor not been quite so lenient, Ayew may not have been on the field to put Palace 2-0 up in midweek. Without a suspension to juggle, Vieira may turn to the 30-year-old again.

Jean-Philippe Mateta (ST) - The burly French frontman has the chance to score in consecutive league outings for the first time since back-to-back Bundesliga goals in November 2020.

Wilfried Zaha (LW) - Manchester United parted ways with an eight-digit sum in 2012 to secure Zaha's services but didn't grant him a single Premier League start.
