New signing Marouane Fellaini is named in the Manchester United squad for the first time ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash with Crystal Palace.

The £27.5million man widens David Moyes' midfield options, although the Red Devils are likely to be without Wayne Rooney (head), Phil Jones (ankle) and Rafael (hamstring).

United are looking to extend a run of 12 years unbeaten on home soil against newly promoted teams, although they also need to find the net after successive games without a goal prior to the international break.

Jonny Williams and Jack Hunt are out of Crystal Palace's trip to Manchester United and face months on the sidelines.

Academy graduate Williams suffered ankle ligament damage on international duty with Wales and new signing Hunt 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.

Provisional squads

Manchester United: De Gea, Lindegaard, Valencia, Smalling, Fabio, Vidic, Ferdinand, Evans, Evra, Buttner, Nani, Carrick, Anderson, Fellaini, Cleverley, Giggs, Young, Zaha, Van Persie, Welbeck, Kagawa, Hernandez.

Crystal Palace: Speroni, Alexander, Ward, Delaney, Parr, Moxey, Gabbidon, Mariappa, Dikgacoi, O'Keefe, Jedinak, Campana, Guedioura, Bannan, Bolasie, Kebe, Thomas, Grandin, Puncheon, Chamakh, Gayle, Phillips, Jerome.
