Crystal Palace v Man Utd team news

Crystal Palace: Christian Benteke is suspended after being sent off in Sunday’s 2-0 defeat to Aston Villa.

It leaves Hodgson short on options up front, while at the back Gary Cahill is expected to miss the game with a hamstring problem. Jeffrey Schlupp and James Tomkins are unlikely to feature.

Man Utd: Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams were both injured in Monday's draw with Southampton, meaning Diogo Dalot is likely to slip into the left-back position.

Both Phil Jones and Alex Tuanzebe remain injured for United, but apart from that Solskjaer has a fit squad to choose from.

Our prediction: Crystal Palace v Man Utd

United still have it all to play for after surrendering a late lead to Southampton last time out, and Solskjaer will demand they don't slip up here.

In reality this is a game the Red Devils should easily win. With Palace's firepower blunted in the absence of Benteke, Hodgson will have to rely on Wilfried Zaha for attacking inspiration.

And that is unlikely to be enough against a United side that themselves are scoring freely right now.

Our prediction: Crystal Palace 1-3 Man Utd

(Man Utd to win 3-1: 12/1 at Bet365)
