Ronaldo, who missed matches in January and March with hip flexor trouble, is United's top scorer this season with 24 goals in all competitions.

United is sixth in the league on 58 points, two points above seventh-placed West Ham United, and it needs a win at Selhurst Park to be certain of securing a place in next season's Europa League.
