Team News: McArthur Makes Eleven

21 May 2016


Alan Pardew names James McArthur, Mile Jedinak and Yohan Cabaye in a midfield three – Yannick Bolasie and Wilfried Zaha will be playing on the wings in the 2016 FA Cup Final. 

Connor Wickham will be leading the Palace line, but with Dwight Gayle and Emmanuel Adebayor named as substitutes, Pardew has options upfront should he choose to change the team’s attacking threat. 

On the bench, Julian Speroni is named along with Jason Puncheon, Martin Kelly, Adrian Mariappa and Bakery Sako making up the full eighteen man squad.

Manchester United have Marouane Fellaini back after serving a three game suspension, and as expected, the Belgium goes straight into Louis Van Gal’s starting eleven. Van Gal also brings in Marcus Rojo in place of Cameron Borthwick-Jackson who is left out of the matchday squad along with Memphis Depay.

Full line-ups:-

Palace: Hennessey, Ward, Dann, Delaney, Souare, Bolasie, Puncheon, Cabaye, McArthur, Zaha, Wickham. Subs: Speroni, Mariappa, Kelly, Sako, Puncheon, Gayle, Adebayor. 

Manchester United: De Gea, Valencia, Smalling, Blind, Rojo, Carrick, Fellaini, Rooney, Mata, Martial, Rashford. Subs: Romero, Darmain, Jones, Schneiderlin, Herrera, Young, Lingard.
