Manchester United v Crystal Palace: match preview

Expect Donny van de Beek to start from the bench as Manchester United hunt for a winning start against Crystal Palace

Expect Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s sole signing, Donny van de Beek, to be a replacement as Manchester United hunt for the winning start needed if they are to have any real hope of challenging Liverpool and Manchester City this term. Crystal Palace won last season’s corresponding fixture 2-1, so this may be close. Jamie Jackson
