Summer signing Gary Cahill is set for his Eagles debut at Manchester United having proved his match fitness. The former England international will come in at centre half for Martin Kelly or Scott Dann who have been able back-ups for the first two matches.

Mamadou Sakho (knee) and James Tomkins (groin) remaine sidelined for the Eagles.

Manchester United full-back Diogo Dalot will miss the Old Trafford clash, along with fellow defenders Eric Bailly and former Palace loan man Timothy Fosu-Mensah.


Roy Hodgson

"For teams like ourselves - and I've worked with teams like Fulham and West Brom who are in a similar position - Old Trafford has always been a very daunting place to go if you need a result. They are a top team and a very top club.

"I think like all clubs, when you go to Old Trafford it's an opportunity. It's a great occasion because that's a place every footballer wants to play. Every footballer in the world would like to play at Old Trafford. In that respect, it's a great occasion.

"We played them last season in Ole's second or third game. They were really very good. He'd just taken over and the team was in fine form. They were really flying, playing like they are at the moment.

"There was a tail-off towards the end of the season where they dropped a few points but I wasn't involved against them then. When I faced them, they were as quick to the ball, aggressive and sharp in their play as I've seen them in the last two games.

"They've had a good start to the season and their new players are showing why they've been bought and why the club and manager have decided to invest money in them."

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

"It’s gonna be a tough game as all these games in the Premier League are, every single one they give you a different challenge and of course they’re a very well organised team.

"[Palace] have pace up front, good counter attacks, big on set pieces and we have to do all parts of the game, have to attack well, win the ball back when we lose it and we’ve got to be strong on set plays."
