Palace won their last two away games at Old Trafford, winning 2-1 in 2019 and 3-1 in 2020.

The Eagles also held United to a 0-0 draw in the last meeting at Selhurst Park back in March.

Both teams have changed managers since, with Palace replacing Roy Hodgson with old United foe Patrick Vieira.

United have replaced Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with Ralf Rangnick, who has had just two training sessions with the players since taking over from caretaker boss Michael Carrick on Friday.

Palace won 2-0 away at Manchester City earlier this season and will be dangerous opponents.

Heading into the game United are in seventh place, looking to close the gap on fourth place West Ham.
