Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed they will be without the services of Diogo Dalot when they face Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday.
The young Portuguese full-back will be out of action until after next month’s international break because of injury and joins the likes of Eric Bailly and Timothy Fosu-Mensah (both knee) on the sidelines.
Solskjaer otherwise has a fully-fit squad to choose from and may stick with the same team that drew with Wolves at Molineux on Monday in their last outing.
United failed to build on their opening-weekend Premier League win over Chelsea as they were held to a 1-1 draw in the West Midlands by Nuno Espirito Santos’ side.
However, the Red Devils are looking a much more settled team under the Norwegian tactician and they will be looking to maintain their perfect home record with the Eagles travel to Manchester on Saturday.
As for Palace, boss Roy Hodgson also has no new injuries for the trip to Old Trafford, as they go in search of their first win of the season after a draw with Everton and a defeat at Sheffield United.
The former England manager is contemplating giving summer signing Gary Cahill a debut in the heart of the Palace defence.
Cahill has been forced to be patient since completing his move to Selhurst Park, but, with plenty of training under his belt, the former Chelsea defender could be given the nod to take on the Red Devils on Saturday.
Centre-back James Tomkins continues his recovery from a groin problem sustained at the end of last season, while Mamadou Sakho (knee) also remains unavailable.
Palace managed to grind out a goalless draw on their last visit to Old Trafford last term but they have not won at the famous ground in the league since 1989 in the old Division One days.
The Eagles did manage to beat United at Old Trafford in the Carling Cup in 2011, with Darren Ambrose and Glenn Murray scoring the goals in an extra-time victory.
