With Manchester City just one point behind, the Reds need to get back to winning ways after last weekend's draw with Manchester United.

Anthony Martial, Nemanja Matic and Phil Jones missed Sunday's goalless draw with Liverpool, when Ander Herrera, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard were forced off during an extraordinary first half.

Solskjaer hinted he could start the Brazil worldwide for just the second time since taking charge of United in December after injuries to Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic left him short of cover in midfield.

However, with that being said, facing Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park without ten first-team players is a risky proposition for any manager.

"He's probably (even) better, because they were signing a player with enormous potential who'd only had a year in the Premier League as a young lad".

Academy trio Angel Gomes, Tahith Chong and James Garner have travelled with the squad.

"We ask our forwards, strikers to work at a higher intensity, to run in behind, but that's what he likes, so I'm sure he'll be fine", Solskjaer said of Lukaku, who impressed on the wing against Liverpool.

Trump has used Venezuela as an example of what, in the administration's view, happens when a country turns to socialism. Those who remain have been punished by hyperinflation that has put scarce food and medicine out of reach for many.

"We lost three players in the first half, all to hamstring injuries, and we should have took Marcus off as well, because he was injured in the first minute". He has had his injuries but he's playing regularly now, and I am really happy for him.

Manchester United racked up their eighth consecutive away win in all competitions with a comprehensive 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace on Wednesday night.

Jose Mourinho's temporary replacement has brought a swift change in approach and fortunes, with the Old Trafford giants still unbeaten in the Premier League under the Norwegian ahead of Wednesday's game. "Rashford we're still waiting to see how his ankle is responding to the treatment, but muscle injuries are too early to think about", he commented.

"Give him the job, let him buy some new players and get rid of some other players".

"Muscle is not so hard to get rid of and he's lean, but he's muscly".

"We take that. It is a point gained because we have one more than before, but it doesn't feel like that. Actually, from my point of view, it is a very positive pressure, but I don't have to play - I only sit here and say dumb things, so that's easy", said the German.
