Manchester United Prediction – Can Manchester Utd see off Palace?

An opening day of the season 4-0 win over Chelsea was perhaps a little flattering for Manchester United who were playing against a weakened Chelsea outfit that was without their star player, Eden Hazard, and under new management with Frank Lampard at the helm.

The chance of recording early back-to-back wins to start this new Premier League campaign off with a bang was missed in United’s following match away at Wolves when Paul Pogba missed a penalty that would have seen the Red Devils take a 2-1 lead and almost certainly grab all three points.

This means that Manchester United have managed to register just 1 win out of their last 7 league matches in the top flight but this poor sequence of results also consists of 3 defeats and 3 draws as well, so they’re by no means guaranteed of all three points at old Trafford on Saturday either.

Turn to results on home turf in the Premier League and you’ll find that United have won by a 2-goal margin or greater in just 1 of their last 10 matches at Old Trafford which was the recent Chelsea romp.

Crystal Palace Prediction – Can Crystal Palace frustrate United?

Upon first glance, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Crystal Palace don’t stand a chance of walking away from Old Trafford with anything this Saturday as the visitors have picked up just 1 point from their first two matches of this new season, and still haven’t scored a goal yet.

Although this may start to stir memories of the ill-fated Ronald de Boer short-lived tenure of two seasons ago, Palace are a much better outfit under Roy Hodgson and have proved their critics and doubters wrong on numerous occasions, not least last season when they pulled some memorable results out of the hat.

Overall, The Eagles have lost just 1 of their last 6 matches in the Premier League while away from home, Palace have lost by 2 goals or more in just 1 of their last 12 away matches in the top flight, which was a 2-0 loss at Tottenham.

However, during this 12-match sequence, the visitors registered back-to-back away wins at Manchester City and Wolves, 3-2 and 2-0 respectively, beat Leicester City 4-1 and only lost to Liverpool by the single goal in a 4-3 defeat at Anfield.


Key-Facts – Manchester Utd v Crystal Palace

  • United have won by a 2-goal+ margin in just 1 of their last 10 matches at home
  • Palace have lost by 2 goals or more in just 1 of their last 12 away matches
  • In the previous meeting between these two sides at Old Trafford, it ended 0-0


Betting Tips Verdict

It’s still early days and Manchester United’s price looks way too low and an over-reaction to the Chelsea result. Crystal Palace have enough about them to avoid a heavy defeat here.
