Latest team news for Man United as Marcus Rashford looks to shake off injury.

Marcus Rashford is expected to be fit to start for Manchester United in their Premier League game at Crystal Palace on Wednesday.

There were fears the striker would have to come off in the derby against Manchester City as he hurt his hip late in the first half, although he carried on to score the winner at Old Trafford.

Both Rashford and Erik ten Hag have played down the “knock” and the United boss is set to provide an update on his player’s fitness when he faces the media on Tuesday afternoon.

Anthony Martial did come off at half time in the weekend win and, even if fit, he could find his place under threat from Alejandro Garnacho or even debutant Wout Weghorst.

The Dutch striker is eligible to play at Selhurst Park after completing a loan move from Burnley just before the City game, and he was pictured in training ahead of facing Palace.

Diogo Dalot is likely to miss out again while contending with an ongoing hamstring complaint. Jadon Sancho, Axel Tuanzebe and Donny van de Beek are longer-term absentees.

Once again, Ten Hag will have to decide whether to keep playing Luke Shaw at centre-back. On an impressive run in the side, the England defender is keeping Lisandro Martinez out of the XI while Tyrell Malacia continues to earn good reviews at left-back.

The United boss also has a call to make in midfield after starting Fred against City and moving Christian Eriksen up the pitch, dropping Antony in the process.

Predicted Manchester United XI: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Shaw, Malacia; Casemiro, Eriksen; Antony, Fernandes, Garnacho; Rashford.
