Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed Paul Pogba will start tonight against Crystal Palace.

It will mark the Frenchman's first start in a competitive game for United.

"It will be a young squad," Ferguson said. "The only area where I have problems is central midfield and I may play Paul Pogba in there. We will have to wait and see but I have plenty of players to choose from. I need to give games to the players who need them, like [Mame Biram] Diouf and [Federico] Macheda, who is coming back from an arm injury, plus all the younger players like Zeki Fryers and the Da Silva brothers, and [Chris] Smalling has come back so he may play."
