Shaw hobbled off with an ankle injury during United's 2-2 draw with Southampton, before his replacement Williams followed him in injury time after a blow to the head before full time.

Solskjaer has since confirmed Shaw will not be part of the Wembley trip, but hinted Brandon could be fit for the fixture.

The Norwegian has shown faith in the same starting line up in recent weeks until the Palace league meeting.

During the match, he opted to give Scott McTominay a chance to shine but had to replace him with in-form Nemanja Matic midway.

As such, Matic could be handed a starting role against his former side in a midfield partnership that could involve Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes.

Sergio Romero, who has been playing between the sticks in cup competitions could be replaced in goal by David de Gea.
