In terms of team news, Cristiano Ronaldo, the team’s standout striker, will be unable to play against the Eagles due to injury (The Athletic).
We should expect Uruguayan international Edinson Cavani to start as the key center forward upfront in such a scenario. The South American’s contract will expire next month, so this could be his final game for the Red Devils.
Bruno Fernandes might replace Cavani in the No.10 position. Rashford and Elanga, on the other side, might start in wide attacking roles.
Fred may replace Matic in the center of the park and partner Scott McTominay. Matic has already announced his departure from the club this summer.
Wan-Bissaka could start in place of Dalot in the right-back position. Shaw is expected to miss time due to personal circumstances, so Telles will likely start at left-back.
Harry Maguire came off the bench during the last game. In front of La Roja goalkeeper David De Gea, the England international might return to partner Varane in the middle defense.
Without Ronaldo, here is Man Utd’s strongest possible 4-2-3-1 XI to face Palace:
