David de Gea – Can there really be anyone else?
Antonio Valencia – Has been poor lately but there aren’t a great deal of options at right-back
Phil Jones – Played for the U21s on Monday and looked sharp
Chris Smalling – By far and away United’s best defender this season
Luke Shaw – Shaken off an injury and should be raring to go at Selhurst Park
Ander Herrera – Will need to be on top form to give United control in the middle of the park
Marouane Fellaini – Should get in amongst it against Palace
Juan Mata – Angel di Maria hasn’t done much to deserve a starting spot ahead of the Spaniard
