Manchester: Manchester United have a shortage of centre-backs for Saturday's home game against Crystal Palace.

Marcos Rojo (shoulder), Phil Jones (shin), Chris Smalling (suspension) and Jonny Evans (ankle) are all unavailable so midfielder Michael Carrick looks set to start in defence alongside either Tyler Blackett or Paddy McNair.

Right-back Rafael (hamstring) is a major doubt for the match at Old Trafford and striker Radamel Falcao (leg) is out.

Provisional squad: De Gea, Lindegaard, Amos, Rafael, Vermijl, Shaw, Blackett, Thorpe, McNair, Pereira, Blind, Fletcher, Valencia, Lingard, Fellaini, Anderson, Carrick, Young, Herrera, Mata, Januzaj, Di Maria, Rooney, Van Persie, W Keane.
