Manchester United v Crystal Palace

Ibrahimovic offered fitness warning amid talk of early Man Utd comeback

However, they would be high on confidence on the back of their 4-1 demolition of CSKA Moscow in Champions League.

Saturday's home match against Roy Hodgson's Crystal Palace has meant a quick turnaround for United. Out of 16 Premier League meetings between the two sides, United have won 13, and three have ended in draws.

While Jones has been playing with an ankle injury and Carrick has only played once in the Carabao Cup this season for the Red Devils.

Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson has bemoaned the fact that his side will be without a single fit first-team striker this weekend, admitting he has faced the situation just once in his 41-year managerial career.

Manchester United will be confident ahead of kick off, as they host bottom of the league Crystal Palace, kick off 3pm, at Old Trafford. Marouane Fellaini has also been ruled out with an ankle problem, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo continue their knee injury recoveries.

Palace's last league win over United came way back in 1990-91.

Marouane Fellaini also missed out with an ankle injury that is still under assessment, while Anthony Martial went off in the 4-1 win in Russian Federation.

Palace's goalless streak beat the Premier League record previously held by Newcastle, who started the 2005-06 season by going four games and 78 minutes before finding the net.

Juan Mata should return after being a sub on Wednesday with Marcus Rashford on the flank while Romelu Lukaku is unstoppable after netting his tenth goal of the season in all competitions during the week and will certainly start up top once more.

Winger Wilfried Zaha has not recovered from his knee injury in time to visit Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday, while Chelsea loanee Ruben Loftus-Cheek will also miss the trip with a thigh strain. Timothy Fosu- Mensah is unavailable for the trip to Old Trafford as he can not face parent club United.

Palace are the only team left in Europe's big five leagues still to claim a league points and could equal Portsmouth's Prem of seven straight defeats at the start of 2009/10.

The two teams could go in this fixture in any more contrasting form if they tried.

Manchester United have flown out of the blocks this season and then some.
