Manchester United have enjoyed a positive start to life under new manager Erik ten Hag, with four goals recorded in each of their summer friendly dates so far against Liverpool and Melbourne Victory, and they will be looking for more of the same against Crystal Palace.

Man Utd squad & team news
Ten Hag has summer signing Tyrell Malacia at his disposal, but fellow new recruits Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez will join up with the squad once the Red Devils return to Europe.
Cristiano Ronaldo has played no part in pre-season so far, having been left out of a travelling party to Asia and Australia, but the likes of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Jadon Sancho are competing for attacking berths.
Donny van de Beek is another looking to force his way into a starting XI, while David de Gea is available despite sitting out a meeting with Melbourne Victory. Raphael Varane, however, misses out.
James Garner is another to have been nursing a knock and he is waiting on his first minutes of pre-season alongside fellow academy graduates Hannibal Mejbri and Alejandro Garnacho.

Crystal Palace squad & team news
Patrick Vieira finds himself with a number of senior stars, with the likes of Wilfried Zaha, Eberechi Eze and Marc Guehi having stayed behind in England due to a combination of fitness and Covid vaccination issues.
The Eagles have just eight members of their first-team squad with them in Australia, meaning that youngsters will continue to get game time – with new signing Malcom Ebiowei among them.
Jean-Philippe Mateta, Odsonne Edouard and Jordan Ayew formed a front three against Liverpool and two of three will lead the line again.
Joachim Andersen, Nathaniel Clyne, Tyrick Mitchell, Joel Ward and Luka Milivojevic feature as they add much-needed experience to the fold.
