Looking Ahead: Man Utd

PUBLISHED

11:41 13th September 2013

ABOUT : After a summer of change at Old Trafford the Red Devils kicked-off the season with a victory against Swansea with a convincing four goal defeat but in the other two games they have been unable to continue the winning habit. 

A goalless draw against Chelsea was followed by a defeat at Anfield with Robin Van Persie and Danny Welbeck leading the scorers chart with two goals apiece.  

Four points from a possible nine is Manchester United's lowest points total after three games since 2008-09, when they recorded the same number.  

The draw against The Blues marked the first time that United have failed to score in consecutive league matches since 2007 and leaves boss David Moyes still looking for his first win as a manager at Old Trafford. 

TEAM NEWS

Manchester United: New signing Marouane Fellaini could make his debut for the Premier League champions.

Wayne Rooney is not expected to be rushed back from a head injury so Danny Welbeck should support Robin van Persie, while Chris Smalling may replace Phil Jones at right-back.


Crystal Palace: New signings Barry Bannan, Jimmy Kebe and Adrian Mariappa plus loan signing Cameron Jerome are both likely to feature for the visitors but this game will probably come to soon for Jonny Parr even though he completed 60 minutes in a midweek game following his lay off with a long term injury.  Jonny Williams and defender Jack Hunt both miss out through injury.
