Crystal Palace host Manchester United for their final match of the Premier League season on Sunday afternoon.

Patrick Vieira has garnered widespread praise with the promise of further improvement next season - even earning backing from the public for his forceful reaction to a pitch invader. Ralf Rangnick, conversely, has already lined up another post and his successor will be in the stands to see Manchester United's worst-ever Premier League campaign die a long-awaited death.

Here's everything you need to know about the meeting between two clubs with drastically different end of season appraisals.

Crystal Palace team news

The latest injury in a campaign pockmarked by fitness concerns saw Michael Olise ruled out for Palace's last three matches of the season after picking up a knock ahead of last weekend's 1-1 draw with Aston Villa.

Veteran midfielder James McArthur is a doubt with a calf strain while James Tomkins is nursing a muscular problem. Goalkeeper Vicente Guaita was only fit enough to make the bench for Thursday's helter-skelter defeat against Everton.


Man Utd team news

When Paul Pogba had his season effectively concluded in April with a calf problem, Jadon Sancho and Luke Shaw were initially dealt similarly doom-laden diagnoses. However, the pair has recovered from trips to the hospital to return to training ahead of this weekend's sojourn to south London.

Marcus Rashford missed Manchester United's humiliation against Brighton at the start of May - the club's last competitive outing - with bronchitis but has figured at Carrington this week.

Eric Bailly is also "a question mark", to borrow Rangnick's wording, as he nurses a back problem.


Crystal Palace vs Man Utd score prediction

A top-half finish is still a possibility for Palace while Manchester United face the prospect of gracing the Europa Conference League next season.

Palace's historic record against Manchester United at Selhurst Park may not be entirely encouraging (without a win since 1991), but the club come into their final home fixture unbeaten in seven matches in south London, including five consecutive clean sheets.

Both of those impressive figures could be improved on Sunday.

Prediction: Crystal Palace 0-0 Manchester United
