Tony Pulis has a fully fit Crystal Palace squad from which to choose the side that will aim to lengthen Manchester United's poor Premier League form tomorrow [Saturday].

The Red Devils come to Selhurst Park without an away win in 2014, and with no
Premier League win in three games.

Meanwhile, the Eagles are unbeaten at home in four matches, including three consecutive wins.

United have the added distraction of a trip to Greece on Tuesday night to face Olympiakos in the last 16 of the Champions League.

There is a distraction around Selhurst Park over the immediate future of fans' favourite Jonny Williams.

The Welsh international has not featured in the squad in the past two games, and talk of loan moves are across the media.

However, Pulis will not make any decisions on the midfielder until after this weekend's clash with David Moyes' United.

Pulis said: "Nothing is going to be done about players until next week when I sit down and look at the games programme.

"We still need to rearrange the Everton game and I have to make sure everyone stays competitive for places.

"The group of players have have been fantastic, and we have a lot of fit players." 

One man making his return to full fitness is Glenn Murray, and Pulis has been pleased with the striker's progress.

He said: "It is small steps with Glenn, but he has been fine. He has been training every day, and looking sharper and sharper as it has gone on."
