Manchester United striker Robin van Persie hasn't had a great start to the new campaign. The 31-year-old, who was so prolific in his debut season for Manchester United helping United win their 20th league title, hasn't quite found that form in the past two seasons, with injury playing part as well.
Louis Van Gaal could give youth a chance against Crystal Palace and hand James Wilson his first start of the campaign, while dropping Robin Van Persie to the bench.
