Possible Manchester United Crystal Palace squad outlined with two returning players



| Last Updated:


Manchester United will have two players returning from illness as Erik ten Hag picks his squad to face Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

Erik ten Hag has only had a depleted Manchester United squad to pick his XIs from over the last month, with several players unavailable for a multitude of reasons.

This is what led to Sofyan Amrabat making his first start for the club filling in at left-back, with all three of Luke Shaw, Tyrell Malacia, and Sergio Reguilón unavailable for the tie.

Manchester United have assessed Reguilon’s availability and determined that, due to a minor injury, he will not be part of the squad that faces Crystal Palace on Saturday.

United were boosted by the return of Mason Mount in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday evening, with the midfielder making his first start since injury alongside Raphaël Varane, who did the same.

Lisandro Martínez, who has missed the last two games through injury, is not in the squad, with United confirming that he has sustained an injury which will keep him out for at least six weeks.

Christian Eriksen and Scott McTominay will return to Ten Hag’s matchday squad after they were also kept out of the Palace squad on Tuesday due to illness. United’s possible squad to play the Premier League fixture has been outlined below.
