New season, new start. Manchester United’s team has been announced for the first game of the season.
United host Crystal Palace at Old Trafford in a 5.30pm kick off.
Starting XI: De Gea, Fosu-Mensah, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, McTominay, Pogba, Fernandes, James, Rashford, Martial
Substitutes: Ighalo, Henderson, Bailly, Greenwood, Wan-Bissaka, Fred, Van de Beek
United lost this fixture 2-1 to Crystal Palace last season, so can take nothing for granted here.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side did beat the Eagles 2-0 at Selhurst Park at the start of July.
Palace begun their season a week earlier, with a 1-0 win over Southampton.
