Jeffrey Schlupp, a key member of Roy Hodgson’s squad who has been missing since early January, is back in the fold and on the bench, while the return of Wilfried Zaha to training will be a lift to everyone.

After a drastic drop off in form, Palace went back to basics and kept things tight against Brighton and Fulham, snatching a smash and grab win on the south coast before a goalless draw against Scott Parker’s side.

With United the visitors to Selhurst Park tonight, there will be no push from Hodgson to take the handbrake off, but doing more on the front foot is a growing priority.

“We’ve been pushed back by Brighton and Fulham and haven’t unleashed the attacking play we’d like,” said Hodgson. “We haven’t done well enough, but it’s credit to them.

“Certainly the players coming back will help us in that area. You sometimes go through a period where it doesn’t quite gel – earlier in the season it was the defensive area, now it’s of the highest standard.

“I’m pretty optimistic that we’ve got more than enough to finish the season and see us into that ninth season in the Premier League.”
