Manchester United vs Crystal Palace Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Manchester United’s derby match against City ended in major disappointment after a 3-1 defeat against Guardiola’s men. City were the superior team by a significant margin and they completely deserved the 2-0 lead handed over by goals from David Silva and Sergio Aguero. Even though Marshall tried to pull one back from the penalty spot in the second half, the gulf in class was exposed by a 44-pass move that led to Ilkay Gundogan’s 86th-minute goal. Crystal Palace lost a Premier League game for the seventh consecutive occasion against Spurs after a 1-0 home defeat. Defender Juan Foyth scored in the second half to hand Spurs a slender win.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Crystal Palace have suffered a defeat against Manchester United in the last six games without exception and the lack of Zaha is not a great sign for Roy Hodgson’s men, who have consistently lost without the England international in their ranks. Palace did not create many chances in the recent home game against Spurs. Even though United are not great at the back, they have the potential to keep out a Palace team without any creativity in their ranks. I would pick a clean sheet for United.

United have a number of players who have found it difficult to score goals of late. The likes of Romelu Lukaku have also been dropped from the first team owing to a lack of goals. Even with Palace being one of the relegation-threatened teams, Roy Hodgson’s men have conceded fewer goals than United. I would back this game to produce under 2.5 goals.

Manchester United Preview

Manchester United’s non-existent title hopes came to an end following the defeat against City. Even though Mourinho was defiant in defeat, there was a huge gulf in class between the Red Devils and their nosy neighbours. United will not be excessively worried by the loss that has left the club seven points behind the top four places, as there is still a long way to go in the campaign. However, the lack of a consistent gameplay from the Reds can have a major impact. Anthony Martial has been United’s top player in recent weeks and he is now up to six goals.

Manchester United Team News

Romelu Lukaku (hamstring), Marcus Rashford, and Paul Pogba (thigh) are unavailable for Mourinho due to injuries, while Luke Shaw is suspended for the match.

Crystal Palace Preview

Roy Hodgson has been vocal about being at the end of a defeated team far too many times this season. His melancholic situation could only get worse in the coming weeks with Wilfried Zaha unavailable for Palace due to a hamstring problem. Palace have been unable to win any game without the England international in their ranks. The London outfit need to pick up points from forthcoming games, which are largely against relegation-threatened teams. Wilfried Zaha is the top scorer with three league goals.

Crystal Palace Team News

Cristian Benteke (knee), Connor Wickham (thigh), James Tomkins (knee), Scott Dann (groin), Wilfried Zaha (hamstring), Aaron Wan-Bissaka (shoulder), and Mamadou Sakho (back) are unavailable for Palace.
