Manchester United Confirmed Lineup vs Crystal Palace: McTominay starts; Fosu-Mensah fills in for Shaw

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer makes two key changes to his starting lineup ahead of the game against Crystal Palace.

There are two changes to the Manchester United lineup that was the victim of a 97th-minute equaliser against Southampton, for their away trip to the Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace.

David de Gea continues in goal for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, but a slightly different defensive unit will screen him today. Timothy Fosu-Mensah comes in for his first appearance of the season, replacing the injured left-back duo of Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams. Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof and Aaron Wan-Bissaka have retained their place in the back-four.

The second change comes in the form of Scott McTominay, who replaces Nemanja Matic in the double pivot and will partner Paul Pogba in the centre of the park.

The attack features an unchanged four-man structure. Bruno Fernandes starts in attacking midfield and will be aided by Marcus Rashford on his left and Mason Greenwood on his right. Greenwood was a doubt for this fixture after picking up an ankle injury on the weekend. Anthony Martial will continue to lead the line for the Red Devils.
