Crystal Palace v Manchester United team line-ups: Two changes for Eagles as Kelly and Schlupp return

By Richard Cawley

Jeffrey Schlupp and Martin Kelly both make their returns from injury to start for Crystal Palace in tonight’s home game against Manchester United.

Timothy Fosu-Mensah is ineligible to face his parent club but Kelly, out for three weeks with a hamstring strain, is fit again to take his place in the centre of the backline.

And Schlupp, out since suffering an ankle injury in an FA Cup defeat at Brighton in January, starts on the left wing.

Eagles manager Roy Hodgson also keeps faith in young right-back Aaron Wan Bissaka, who made his debut against Tottenham Hotspur at Selhurst Park last time out.

Crystal Palace: Hennessey, Wan Bissaka, Kelly, Tomkins, Van Aanholt, Townsend, Milivojevic, McArthur, Schlupp, Sorloth, Benteke. Subs: Cavalieri, Lee, Souare, Delaney, Rakip, Jach, Riedewald.

Manchester United: De Gea, Lindelof, Pogba, Sanchez, Lukaku, Smalling, Lingard, Young, Valencia, Matic, McTominay. Subs: Pereira, Bailly, Mata, Carrick, Rashford, Shaw, Darmian.
