MANCHESTER UNITED 0-0 CRYSTAL PALACE

21: van Aanholt vs James. That’s going to be an epic battle today. The Manchester United star wins the first battle when nipping beyond him, only for PVA to bring him down. Free-kick, no booking.

18: Close! Daniel James very nearly opens the scoring for Manchester United. The winger slips in and the combination of Guaita and van Aanholt just about foil him converting Anthony Martial’s deflected effort.

15: Manchester United have a free kick around 30 yards out. Surely Marcus Rashford isn’t going to shoot from here? Oh… he does. And the ball dribbles wide.

12: Kelly brings down Martial just outside the Palace area. Harry Maguire and Co are in the box to aim at… Maguire knocks it down for Shaw to ping it high.

Can’t keep Maguire quiet here. He sends a delightful pass over to Marcus Rashford, who attempts to cut inside but slips.

9: Just the 88 percent possession for Manchester United in the opening nine minutes. That’s all. Just 88 percent.

The hosts win themselves a corner as the big lads trundle up from the back. Scott McTominay connects with a header but he’s skied it over the crossbar.

6: Referee Paul Tierney has a problem with his watch and has ordered man, myth, legend Mike Dean to grab him a replacement. And that’s about as exciting as it’s been thus far.

4: West Ham have started well. Mark Noble converted a penalty inside the opening two minutes away to Watford.

3: Crystal Palace playing a five-man midfield with Wilfried Zaha on the left. It’s left to Jordan Ayew to lead the line by himself. Can’t see that going well if I’m honest.

MANCHESTER UNITED 0-0 CRYSTAL PALACE

1: Y’all ready for this? Splendid. We’re underway at a glorious Old Trafford. Sunny, warm with a nice little breeze.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka up against his former side. You know what that means, right? Yep, his first home goal is on the way…

Solskjaer: Pogba will score penalties

14:50: Who knows what’s going to happen if Manchester United win a penalty today.

Paul Pogba was criticised for taking a spot-kick in Monday’s draw with Wolves, ahead of Marcus Rashford, and then seeing it saved by Rui Patricio.

Pogba has now missed four of his 11 attempts in the Premier League, but Solskjaer said: “I’m sure you’re going to see Paul Pogba score a penalty for Man United again. Definitely.”

He didn’t actually specify a time-frame there. Crafty stuff, Ole.

MANCHESTER UNITED vs CRYSTAL PALACE

Crystal Palace are without injured central defenders Mamadou Sakho and James Tomkins.

Gary Cahill could make his debut for Roy Hodgson’s side.

Diogo Dalot, Eric Bailly and Tim Fosu-Mensah are injury absentees while the Manchester Evening News didn’t spot Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Fred, Marcos Rojo, Matteo Darmian or Alexis Sanchez as the team met before the match.

Fred is working his way back to fitness, while Solskjaer has been using Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof in defence with Axel Tuanzebe on the bench.

That means Smalling and Jones look like they have once again been left out of the squad.
