I honestly wouldn't put Lingard on the bench based on the last game. Give a youth team player a run instead.

United's run in on paper looks easier - because they've played the teams higher up the league already!!! It's a bit unfair regarding the Cup semi final - Chelsea having 48 hours more to prepare. I'd love United to get back to the top of the list of winners of that competition but it will be a tall order to get through that semi final with the injuries and need to rotate the squad.

The appearance of tiredness last night has me worried. I hope it was a one off that they can shake off.....

He named the same team for the past 5 games in a row. Great to be able to do that, but this is like the start of the season, players looked stretched heavy legged. But the pass from DeGea to Pogba was woeful when a ball out to his right was a far easier option.

Martial should have scored one on one chance. Greenwood was missing, whether that was the clash on the ankle or Southampton played it tight on him, it kept him quiet.

Bruno and Pogba not as influential as in previous games. Utd win next game will at least have them a fighting chance with Leicester

And don't forget the Rashford one that was blocked 2 yards out....split second from a certain goal. It wasn't all bad but the last 20 minutes were poor. Shaw seems to be fit anyway. Have rolled my ankle many times and you just don't know sometimes till a day or two afterwards how bad it is. Seems he's ok.

I'd be tempted to start Williams instead of Shaw in a few games. He could be a regular starter for Utd soon if he continues to progress. I love his aggressive style.

He was better than Shaw when he came on the last night. I think he's going to be brilliant but he has had a few iffy games which is to be expected from someone so young. I hope the damage the last night looked worse than it was. Cos it looked bad.

United can't afford to take any risks, they'll be full out where they can for Palace. If they drop points that final game v Leicester becomes absolutely massive.

A hard earned and important win tonight under pressure after Chelsea and Leicester won. 19 games unbeaten now scoring 50 goals and conceding just 8 goals in that run.

More than one eye will be on the West Ham game next Wednesday so should be interesting to see how strong of a side Ole selects for Sundays FA Cup semi final.

Chelsea will not prioritise the FA cup either over top 4! Expect both teams to be different

The battles for European places and PL safety are intrinsically entwined.

Chelsea play a Liverpool team in party mode (or are they going to want to win their last home game as champions? Probably not, if there were fans there the motivation would be different). Chelsea's final game against Wolves in sixth with nothing to play for.

Leicester play Spurs (7th, nothing to play for) before their last game home to Utd.

Utd have a game against West Ham who still aren't safe (3 points clear with a game in hand plus much better goal difference)
West Ham play Watford prior to the United game where a win would leave them safe, but if they get 0 / 1pt they will need something from the Utd game to avoid a last day shootout with Villa (if Villa don't beat Arsenal this is moot)
Hasta la victoria siempre

They rested a few players against Norwich yesterday and have the two extra days to prepare for this cup tie. I'd be surprised if Lampard doesn't choose his first choice 11 to start on Sunday.

He can do whatever he wants. Utd should play the reserve team.
