Crystal Palace Prediction

In truth, Crystal Palace already possess a comfortable and useful six point cushion ahead of third from bottom club Southampton, but Roy Hodgson’s team will want to make absolutely sure of their top flight status, starting with a win tonight.

Palace head into this clash with an unbeaten run in their last six matches in all competitions which includes league wins against Tottenham, Fulham and Leicester City, the latter being a 4-1 thrashing of The Foxes at the King Power Stadium on the weekend against a team that were on their last legs under the previous Claude Puel regime.

The hosts have also picked up useful points along the way with draws with Southampton and West Ham, but their biggest test for a few weeks will be how they handle a rejuvenated Manchester United outfit under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Wednesday night.

Crystal Palace possess an average looking home record of 3-4-6 9/12 with the obvious problem being a lack of goals; indeed, only rock-bottom club Huddersfield Town (7) have scored fewer goals at home this season than The Eagles.

Incidentally, 11 of Crystal Palace’s 13 home matches have resulted in under 2.5 goals, with the hosts keeping five clean sheets to date.

 

Key-Facts – Crystal Palace v Manchester United

  • Crystal Palace are unbeaten in their last 6 matches in all competitions
  • Manchester United have won their last 5 away matches on the trot
  • 11 of Crystal Palace’s 13 home matches have resulted in under 2.5 goals

 

Manchester United Prediction

Manchester United have a lengthy injury list following Sunday’s 0-0 draw at home with Liverpool after manager Solskjaer was forced to use all three substitutes in what was an extraordinary first half which saw United having to replace Mata, Herrera and Lingard, with the latter coming as a substitute himself and lasted less than 20 minutes.

In addition, forward Rashford was limping throughout the match but had to play on, but he’s expected to also be absent on Wednesday night along with Martial, Matic and Valencia. Nevertheless, United extended their unbeaten run in the Premier League under Solskjaer to 10 matches which includes eight wins, although the goal-less draw with Liverpool have seen the Red Devils drop out of the top four to fifth place in the Premier League.

The visitors have also won their last five away matches on the trot with wins at Cardiff City, Newcastle United, Tottenham, Leicester City and Fulham, but a depleted squad that’s been ravaged by injuries may find it tough going at Selhurst Park on Wednesday night.

Betting Tips Verdict

Crystal Palace will be in confident mood following their 4-1 romp at Leicester City while Manchester United will look to at least avoid defeat here as they make-do and mend on the road. This could be a low-scoring affair as a result.
