Crystal Palace vs Manchester United Match Analysis and Prediction

Crystal Palace welcome home second-placed Manchester United this week in the Premier League as they look to pull off the first league double over the 20th Champions. The match schedules for Selhurst Park with kickoff at 11:15 pm.

The Eagles started the season on a high note following a 3-1 win at Old Trafford, but 17 points now separate the two sides in the table, with the Red Devils looking further to strengthen their Champions League bid.

Ole Gunnar went through his fifth goalless draw of the season as Manchester United could not manage to get the better part of Chelsea. A controversially-rejected penalty on Callum Hodson Oddoi was a major point of discussion.

It is disappointing for the Red Devils with all the five draws coming from the ‘big six’, and they failed to find the back of the net in their six matches. Twelve points currently separate them from league leaders Manchester City, whom they face during the weekend.

The Red Devils enter into the clash unbeaten in nine games across all competitions and only one defeat in the last 20 league outings. It is a different case for Palace, who continue battling for consistency.

Roy Hodgson’s side has four points from their past two games, managing to defeat Brighton 2-1 with fewer touches in the opponent’s box. It follows with a goalless draw to Fulham.
