How Man Utd could line-up against Crystal Palace with Mason Greenwood, Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams ALL doubts

MANCHESTER UNITED travel to Crystal Palace hoping to bounce back from their 2-2 draw with Southampton on Monday.

Brandon Williams and Luke Shaw were both injured in the clash and are doubts for the visit to Selhurst Park.

And a knock taken by Mason Greenwood could also add to the Red Devils’ woes.

Michael Obafemi nicked a dramatic late equaliser for the visitors, stabbing home from close range in the 96th minute.

Marcus Rashford’s and Anthony Martial’s goals seemed to have given United all three points but one of the main post-game talking points was the injuries to the two left-backs.

Shaw was replaced by Williams in the 75th minute after appearing to roll his ankle.

And Williams was then forced off in injury time after an aerial collision with Kyle Walker-Peters saw him pick up a nasty gash.

Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could also be without teenage sensation Greenwood, after the attacker was the victim of a nasty challenge from Oriol Romeu against the Saints.

Speaking ahead of the Palace clash, the Norwegian told MUTV: “I’ll give Luke [Shaw] as much time as possible – him and Mason, their ankles are swollen and a bit blown up.

“I’ll give them as much recovery time as possible to give them a chance.

“Brandon [Williams] should be fine, he has a gash over the eye but if he can see out of it then… we’ve not trained obviously this morning yet but we’ll hopefully have two, maybe all three of them.”

Brandon Williams may be fit to return while Dan James could slot in to give Mason Greenwood a rest

This could see Solskjaer hand Diogo Dalot, 21, just his second Premier League start this season.

And Dan James – who scored against Palace in the South Londoners’ 2-1 victory at Old Trafford in August – could slot in for the stricken Greenwood.

The rest of the line-up will likely be the same as started against the Saints.

But with an FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea on Sunday, the United boss may be encouraged to shake things up.

Scott McTominay could slot in alongside Paul Pogba to give the experienced Nemanja Matic a breather.
