Failure to beat the Eagles could see United drop down into seventh and into the Uefa Conference League.
United must claim the three points in South London or hope West Ham fail to beat Brighton at the Amex Stadium to secure a place in the Europa League.
And United could decide to give their youngsters a chance, with Charlie Savage, Shola Shoretire and Alvaro Fernandez all named in their squad.
The trio were snapped before making their way down to the capital, where they will be looking to impress incoming manager Erik ten Hag should they be given any game time.

Savage – son of former Leicester ace Robbie – hasn’t been named in a Premier League matchday squad this season.
The midfielder made his first team debut for the club in December in the Champions League against Swiss outfit Young Boys to leave his dad on the verge of tears.
Forward Shoretire featured twice in the top-flight last campaign, but like Savage, hasn’t been included in a squad prior to the trip to Palace.
As for left-back Fernandez, he is hoping to make his debut for United after being named as the club’s U23 Player of the Year.
He has been an unused substitute in the last three Premier League games, with Alex Telles preferred instead.
Should Telles pick up a knock, Fernandez could be given minutes by interim boss Ralf Rangnick with Luke Shaw a doubt to feature.
The German revealed on Friday that the England international is a doubt to play against Palace after his partner gave birth to their second child.
In a blow for United, Cristiano Ronaldo is not available after being ruled out through injury.
That’s according to The Athletic, who claim a hip flexor problem will see him miss the match.
