Man United have been atrocious on the road, losing each of their last five matches. Not only that, they have conceded 16 and scored just once in those games. Contrary, Palace are in good form at home so I can see them taking the points here.

Crystal Palace vs Manchester United Preview


Manchester United have suffered defeat in each of their last five away matches. During that period they have scored just one goal and with Palace in good home form I’m backing a home win.

Head to Head


Manchester United hold a 29-8 lead over Crystal Palace in their 46 encounters. There have been nine draws.

Earlier this season the Red Devils beat Palace 1-0 at Old Trafford thanks to a 77th minute strike by Fred.

Crystal Palace Form


Crystal Palace are 13th in the English Premier League after 37 matches. By all accounts it has been a very good season for them under Patrick Viera.

Palace are unbeaten in four of their last five matches with two wins and two draws. A 2-1 win at Southampton was followed by a 1-0 home success against Watford. They then drew 1-1 at Aston Villa.

On Thursday Crystal Palace traveled to Everton and led 2-0 at half time through goals by Jean Philippe Mateta and Jordan Ayew. Everton however came storming back in the second half, winning 3-2.

Crystal Palace Injuries


Viera could look to make changes given that Palace played on Thursday. Conor Gallagher is likely to play his last match for the club while Luka Milivojevic could also return to the starting lineup.

James Tomkins and James McArthur are both doubts for this match.

Manchester United Form


Manchester United have been playing like they can’t wait for the season to end recently. They are currently sixth and need at least a draw to secure qualification for the UEFA Europa League.

The Red Devils have lost their last five away matches in the EPL. They have conceded 16 goals in those matches which does not make for pretty reading.

Last weekend United went down 4-0 at Brighton. Prior to that they beat Brentford 3-0 at home and drew 1-1 against Chelsea at Old Trafford.

Manchester United Injuries


Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho have recovered from illness but remain a doubt for this match.

Left-back Luke Shaw is back in training but may only feature off the bench after his wife gave birth recently. Harry Maguire should return to the starting side after United lost 4-0 in his absence.
