Crystal Palace will try to stop the Manchester United juggernaut in its tracks when the sides meet at Selhurst Park in the Premier League on Wednesday evening.
Palace has been stuttering in recent weeks, with the weekend’s 1-0 defeat to Chelsea extending a run of just one win in five games in all competitions since the international break and things don’t get any easier with one of the division’s form teams heading to south London.
On the plus side the Eagles, have been something of a bogey team for the Red Devils in recent times. Their 1-0 win in this exact fixture on the final day of last season was their first home league triumph over Man Utd since 1991 but they have now won three of the last six Premier League contests between the teams.
However, this is a United side brimming with confidence, as they seek a tenth win in a row in all competitions, something they haven’t accomplished since 2009 and the heady days of the Sir Alex Ferguson era – with Marcus Rashford spearheading an incredible turnaround in recent weeks.

Man Utd is one of the Premier League’s most in-form teams at the moment and while Crystal Palace may be able to frustrate them for a while, the Red Devils should be too strong. Crystal Palace 1-3 Manchester Utd.
