Manchester United's team for the final Premier League match of the season, at Crystal Palace, has been announced.

Interim manager Ralf Rangnick takes charge for the last time as the Reds seek the three points that would secure Europa League football next term, irrespective of West Ham United's result at Brighton & Hove Albion.

Palace surrendered a 2-0 lead at Everton on Thursday night but will want to go out on a positive note in front of their noisy Selhurst Park crowd, while United look forward to welcoming Erik ten Hag as our new boss.

There are a whole host of absentees, including Luke Shaw, Nemanja Matic, Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford.

It means a first start for promising youngster Hannibal, while Edinson Cavani leads the line. The exact composition of the midfield remains to be seen, with Bruno Fernandes operating on the left of late but a contender to move back central.

There is plenty of youth on the bench, including Charlie Savage, who is part of a Premier League matchday squad for the first time, a few days after signing a new contract at the club. 

United: De Gea; Dalot, Lindelof, Maguire (c), Telles; McTominay, Fred; Elanga, Hannibal, Bruno; Cavani.

Subs: Heaton, Bailly, Fernandez, Jones, Varane, Mata, Savage, Garnacho, Shoretire.
