Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew has made three changes to his side for tonight’s visit of Manchester United, with Mathieu Flamini handed a first Eagles start.

The Frenchman lines up alongside his fellow countryman Yohan Cabaye who also comes into the team, with Joe Ledley and the suspended Jason Puncheon dropping out.

The other change from the team that started Saturday’s 3-3 draw against Hull City sees Chung-yong Lee return in place of Andros Townsend, whilst there are two new faces on the Eagles' first-team bench in Noor Husin and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

With Henrikh Mkhitaryan out injured and Antonio Valencia suspended, the United boss has included Wayne Rooney and Daley Blind in their places.
