    Crystal Palace Football Club (nicknamed CPFC, The Glaziers and The Eagles) are a professional football club based in South Norwood, London. Crystal Palace were founded in 1905 at the site of the famous Crystal Palace Exhibition building by the owners of the FA Cup Final stadium, who wanted their own team to play at the historic venue. When Crystal Palace were founded, they turned to one of the biggest clubs in the country at the time, Aston Villa, to seek advice. Villa helped the club in a number of ways, not least by donating their kit. As a result, Palace's colors were originally claret and blue shirts paired with white shorts, socks tending to be claret. They kept to this formula fairly consistently until 1938.

    The club initially played their home games at the FA Cup Final stadium which was situated inside the grounds of The Crystal Palace, but the First World War saw them forced to move out, and they enjoyed a number of seasons at both the Herne Hill Velodrome and The Nest. Although Crystal Palace have never won a major trophy, they have played in the First Division for the majority of their existence, finishing 3rd once, and losing the 1990 FA Cup Final to Manchester United. Crystal Palace play their homes games at Selhurst Park, and share sporting rivalries with South London neighbors Milwall, former tenants Charlton, and Brighton & Hove Albion.

    Hopefully another not a bomb scare and the game gets called off and they just give both teams a point

    So at least Josh Harrop and Matt Olosunde would be nice to be included in the lineup selection. @Niall Cheers!

    It will indeed, rather them than these experienced players who don't seem to care.

    Palace will basically be on holiday as well.

    Play the kids. Let them play as well. Not just be on the pitch.

    Oddly, I'm looking forward to this - providing the kids do indeed play.

    Old Trafford will rally. It'll be fun.

    It's almost funny how f… competitive Mourinho is. He was saying he hopes Big Sam is a real friend and doesn't come with a too strong squad. He really hates losing, even if it's playing the youngsters on the verge of a European final. Could be tragic, if it wasn't so funny… and while he's successful, mind you.

    The Beckham, Scholes generation got their first taste of a packed Old Trafford crowd against Crystal Palace, 25 years ago (OK it was a youth cup final rather than a league game but never mind).

    Lets hope Sunday offers a similar experience for a new generation of top United youth players.

    As you can see, I'm stretching a bit here.

    Will Rooney be offended if Mourinho starts him? :rolleyes: Or Carrick? Could be a dangerous exercise in man management this.

    I would start with an historical central spine of Smalling–Carrick–Rooney, adding Bailly as center-back and Lingard perhaps, all the rest being youngsters. But, as I said before, might be delicate and sensed as disrespectful to those players, specially Carrick and Rooney, both expecting to have an eventual important contribution in the final.

    One more request, Zak Dearnley. Mourinho mentioned him as one who might play on Sunday.

    EARLY TEAM NEWS FOR CRYSTAL PALACE

    Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has guaranteed there will be some fresh faces in the line-up when the Reds take on Crystal Palace on Sunday, with Paul Pogba also set to return.

    The boss name-checked several youngsters and confirmed Joel Pereira will make his Premier League debut in goal against Sam Allardyce's Eagles at Old Trafford. Demi Mitchell, Matty Willock, Josh Harrop and Zak Dearnley are also in line to make their senior bows at any level as none of them have even had a loan spell away from the club.

    Pogba will get a run out in the final Premier League game of a demanding season after being granted compassionate leave due to the sad death of his father.

    "Sunday will be a big day for the kids because lots of them are going to play," said the boss. "I hope the crowd enjoys that, in spite of it not being a big, strong Manchester United team.

    "I hope to play Joel against Crystal Palace. He’s a very good goalkeeper so we’re in safe hands."

    When asked about when David De Gea will next play, Mourinho replied: "I think in the first match against LA Galaxy in pre-season in Los Angeles [on 15 July]. David is the top [keeper] in the world and obviously we want to keep the top [goalie] in the world.

    "I don't go with 'if he leaves' as I hope he doesn't leave. I think we need two top goalkeepers and a top young goalkeeper and this is what we have in this moment. David is David and Sergio is Sergio. Spain's national-team keeper and Argentina's national-team keeper.

    "For me, it's amazing to have it. Everything went very smoothly during the season. Everyone was accepting my decisions and I'm really happy with both of them. I'm also very happy and, the next match, Joel is playing his first match in the Premier League. The kid also deserves this."

    Mourinho went on to reveal virtually all of his squad news for the weekend during his press conference at St Mary's, after the draw with Southampton.

    "I don't tell you," he initially insisted, but then added: "I will bring Mitchell, he was on the bench. [Scott] McTominay, he was on the bench. Of course, Axel [Tuanzebe]. Of course, Eric Bailly and [Matty] Willock will come too. Josh Harrop will come. Zachary [Dearnley] will come.

    "Pogba will come because Paul is not training or playing since his dad passed away. I will put two or three of my boys rotating during the game, making some changes to save them, but I need to give a little structure of four or five of my boys to give some stability to the kids. I don't think, by themselves, they will be in [the right] conditions to play the game."
