Marouane Fellaini: Pushing for Manchester United debut

Marouane Fellaini is in line to make his Manchester United debut at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Fellaini completed his move from Everton on deadline day and he could replace Tom Cleverley alongside Michael Carrick in midfield.

Wayne Rooney is still out due to a head injury, so Shinji Kagawa will be hoping to be given a chance after expressing his frustration at failing to feature in the league under Moyes so far.

Rafael is still sidelined, while injury ruled Phil Jones out of England duty, so either Chris Smalling or Antonio Valencia could start at right-back.

Palace duo Jonny Williams and Jack Hunt are out after the former suffered ankle ligament damage on international duty with Wales and the latter broke his ankle in training, while there are a couple other knocks manager Ian Holloway was not willing to divulge before the match.

Late acquisitions Adrian Mariappa, Barry Bannan, Cameron Jerome, Jimmy Kebe and Adlene Guedioura will be hoping to make their first appearance for Palace at Old Trafford.

Aaron Wilbraham, Owen Garvan, Stephen Dobbie and Florian Marange will not feature after being left out of the 25-man squad.
