Manchester United team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Crystal Palace

Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for Manchester United ahead of Wednesday's Premier League trip to face Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

Manchester United travel to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Wednesday night looking to return to winning ways after back-to-back goalless draws.

A stalemate with Real Sociedad last Thursday was enough to see them through to the last 16 of the Europa League, but the same scoreline against Chelsea on Sunday left them 12 points adrift of Premier League leaders Manchester City.

There was some good news from Stamford Bridge, though, as Scott McTominay, Daniel James and Donny van de Beek all returned from minor niggles to make the matchday squad.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Man United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their second trip to London in the space of four days.

Status: Out
Type of injury: Thigh
Possible return date: March 7 (vs. Manchester City)

Paul Pogba is now back in light training after a thigh injury and has begun to step up his recovery, but Wednesday's contest will come too soon for him. The Frenchman faces a battle to be fit in time for Sunday's Manchester derby.

Edinson Cavani

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Muscle
Possible return date: March 3 (vs. Crystal Palace)

There was hope that Edinson Cavani might be available for the trip to Chelsea at the weekend, but he was once again absent from the matchday squad. The veteran striker is now back in training, though, and could be in line to return at Selhurst Park.

Juan Mata

Status: Out
Type of injury: Unspecified
Possible return date: Unknown

Solskjaer confirmed last week that Juan Mata will miss "a couple of weeks" with an unspecified injury, meaning that he will play no part at Selhurst Park.

Phil Jones

Status: Out
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: Unknown

It has now been more than a year since Phil Jones featured for Manchester United, but he is now in the latter stages of his recovery from a knee injury and, having been added to the Premier League squad at the end of January, there is hope that he will return before the end of the season.


Man United have no players suspended for the trip to Selhurst Park.
