United currently sit in 7th place in the table, just one point above Palace, and they will head into a game they are expected to win boosted by the arrival of Belgian International Marouane Fellaini.
The former Everton star moved to United on the final day of the transfer window and is expected to make his debut on Saturday especially as Wayne Rooney is out following the head injury sustained in the build up to the Liverpool game.
Moyes looks set to also be without right backs Phil Jones and Rafael with Chris Smalling most likely to deputise.
Shinji Kagawa will hope to feature after scoring midweek in Japan’s win over Ghana as too will Nani, after his made his first appearance of the season at Anfield.
Palace meanwhile will be without a host of stars for the trip up North with Paddy McCarthy (groin), Yannick Bolasie (hamstring), Jerome Thomas (ankle) and Glenn Murray (knee) all still unavailable, while new signing Jack Hunt has a broken ankle while Florian Marange, Stephen Dobbie and Owen Garvan are also unlikely to travel.
Eagles boss Ian Holloway will be forced to inspire a Palace win from the stands following a two match ban for comments made about referee Mark Clatterburg in the aftermath of the Tottenham game.
However despite not being on the sidelines the former Blackpool is backing his side to repeat their heroics of 2011 when they managed to beat the Red Devils on their own turf in the league cup.
“Let’s enjoy it. I’m excited by all these games, but it’s just another game,” Holloway said.
“I believe the lads are getting together and believe they can get to grips with this division.
“I certainly won’t be parking the bus. We have to go there and make a good account of ourselves.
“Palace beat Man United in the cup two years ago, I watched it on television. Can we go there and do it again?
“All I want is a performance. Let’s see what we can do.”
We have to go back to the 1998/1999 season for the last time a newly promoted side won at Old Trafford (Middlesbrough) and its pretty difficult to see Ian Holloway’s side making any significant progress.
Paddy Power are reporting the majority of money going on the 3-0, and 4-0 scorelines, which can be backed at 15/2 and 12/1 respectively.
This one is the early kickoff at 12.45 GMT Sat.
