Crystal Palace vs Manchester United Team News

Alan Pardew rested a number of his first-team regulars in a 4-1 loss to Southampton, but he is going to field the best possible side against Manchester United. Joe Ledley failed to recover in time to face the Red Devils, but Wilfried Zaha is fit and he is likely to play against his former teammates on Saturday evening. Yohan Cabaye returns to the starting line-up after he was rested against Southampton.

Injured: Kwesi Appiah (0/0), Marouane Chamakh (2/0), Brede Hangeland (2/0)

Marouane Fellaini returns from suspension and he is likely to be recalled to the starting line-up. Full back Matteo Darmian has overcome his injury and he is pushing for a start as well. Marcos Rojo is fit, but Luke Shaw and Bastian Schweinsteiger remain in the recovery room. Luke Shaw returned to training, but Saturday’s clash against Crystal Palace comes too early for him.

Crystal Palace vs Manchester United Team News

Manchester United are desperate to save the season by winning the FA Cup trophy. As things stand now, Louis van Gaal is unlikely to stay in charge of the team, but the Dutch tactician will certainly give his best to help the Red Devils beat Crystal Palace in the Wembley Stadium clash. The Eagles have been struggling to find their form in 2016 and that is the main reason why I am tempted to put my money on the English giants this time out. In their last meeting in the FA Cup final (1990) Man Utd emerged triumphant.
