Team news

Centre back Mamadou Sakho is injured with a knee injury after hobbling off against Leicester City on Saturday and it's feared he could miss the rest of the season.

United have nine players potentially out for the game: Ander Herrera, Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Matteo Darmian, Anthony Martial, Antonio Valencia, Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo.

Quotes

Roy Hodgson

"I'm looking forward to it but I'm vary wary of the fact that this is Manchester United. This is a team that in their last 11 league games they've only managed to draw twice and win the other nine, so it's going to be a very, very tough ask for us. But at least we go into the game after a good victory ourselves.

"There's no doubt that he (Solskjaer) has had an effect upon the team. I've been very impressed with the way that he's conducted himself. Manchester United are Manchester United and we are talking about one of the greatest football clubs not just in England but in the whole world.

"Maybe the players have woken up a little bit and started to smell the coffee and realised that they're Manchester United and the way things were going hadn't been quite good enough.

"If we are going to get a result in the game on Wednesday night it will be a massive feather in the cap of Crystal Palace football club because I can't remember too many of our victories against them."

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

"Weíll have a good team out on the pitch definitely. Thereíll be a chance for others. Iíve been sat on the outside getting a chance when this had happened.

"The players who came in (against Liverpool), Scott (McTominay) and Andy [Andreas Pereira], I thought they did fantastic. There you go, thatís the way it is. Youíve just got to be ready when you get it."
