Manchester United will be managed by new interim boss Ralf Rangnick for the first time when they host Crystal Palace at Old Trafford today.
With caretaker Michael Carrick having gone unbeaten during his three games in temporary charge before leaving somewhat surprisingly, Rangnick could make further headway in pushing United towards the top four with a victory this afternoon.
Indeed, with Carrick having denied the German had any impact on his decision to drop Cristiano Ronaldo against Chelsea last week, and Rangnick having called him ‘amazing’ in his first press conference, it will be fascinating to see what Rangnick does with the superstar Portuguese.
However, some reports have claimed Ronaldo is carrying a knee injury and is a big doubt for today’s game.
Elsewhere, United remain without key centre-back Raphael Varane, but his recovery from a thigh injury is said to be progressing well.
Paul Pogba also remains sidelined, while the likes of Luke Shaw, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Nemanja Matic all face late fitness tests and Edinson Cavani is still carrying an injury.
Man United predicted XI: De Dea, Dalot, Maguire, Lindelof, Telles, Fred, McTominay, Fernandes, Sancho, Ronaldo, Rashford
