Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to name an unchanged lineup from the one which drew with Wolves on Monday when his Manchester United side host Crystal Palace this weekend.

United looked to be on their way to three points when Anthony Martial gave them the lead in the first-half, but a stunning Ruben Neves equaliser for Wolves pegged them back before Paul Pogba missed a penalty to ensure the game ended all square.

The one change Solskjaer made in that game to the opening day 4-0 thrashing of Chelsea was to start new signing Daniel James, who took Andreas Pereira’s place in the team.

And that is likely to be the case again, with James most likely having done enough to keep his place in the team.

Eric Bailly and Timothy Fosu-Mensah are long-term absentees for United, while Diogo Dalot has been ruled out until after the international break next month.

With new signings Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire looking settled in defence there seems little need for Solskjaer to change anyone in his back five, meaning it will almost certainly be made up of David de Gea in goal with Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Victor Lindelof and Luke Shaw in front of him.

Pogba did not have the easiest week after being racially abused on Twitter following his penalty miss, but he is thought to be relatively unaffected by the vile insults and ready to play. Scott McTominay, James and Jesse Lingard are also unlikely to be dropped.

Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial have two goals each from the opening two games, and are forming an impressive-looking partnership. Even though promising young talent Mason Greenwood staked his claim in the starting lineup with an impressive pre-season, Solskjaer will no doubt see no need to disrupt Rashford and Martial’s developing chemistry on this occasion.

Manchester United predicted starting XI

De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Shaw; Pogba, McTominay; Lingard, James; Martial, Rashford.
