Manchester United’s top four push continues with the visit of Crystal Palace on Saturday, with Erik ten Hag’s side on a high after reaching the League Cup final.

The Red Devils sealed a 5-0 aggregate semi-final win over Nottingham Forest in midweek and now must turn their attention back to Premier League matters.

Despite their cup success, United have only picked up one point from their last two games in the league – and that came against Palace.

They face the Eagles once again at Old Trafford, two weeks on from their last meeting, with the Londoners looking to end a five-match winless run in all competitions.

Make sure you know how to watch the Premier League (opens in new tab) wherever you are.

Team news

Christian Eriksen picked up an ankle injury recently that will rule him out until at least April, while Diogo Dalot, Donny van de Beek and Scott McTominay are also out.

Marcel Sabitzer is on the bench for United following a deadline day move from Bayern Munich on loan. There is no place for Anthony Martial in the squad. Diogo Dalot and Jadon Sancho return to the XI.

Palace are without the injured Wilfried Zaha, Joachim Andersen, James McArthur and Nathan Ferguson.

Manager Patrick Vieira has made three changes from the team which played Newcastle two weeks ago. Nathaniel Clyne replaces Joel Ward in defence, while Will Huges returns in midfield. New signings Sambi Lokonga and Naouirou Ahamada start on the bench and are in line to make their debuts. 

Manchester United XI: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Martinez, Shaw; Casemiro, Fred; Antony, Bruno Fernandes, Rashford; Weghorst.

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Premier League football from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a Premier League fixture, then you won't be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there. For the Premier League, FourFourTwo currently recommends:

ExpressVPN (opens in new tab)

ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee (opens in new tab)
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS5 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
