Crystal Palace vs Man Utd preview

Crystal Palace haven't quite hit the ground running since returning from the World Cup break.

It's just a solitary victory at Bournemouth for them the only win since the restart, with home defeats to Fulham, Spurs and then Southampton in the FA Cup.

They left Stamford Bridge without a point on Sunday, too, losing 1-0 to an out of sorts Blues side still struggling with a lengthy injury list.

Boss Patrick Vieira felt "too many decisions" went against his side in the defeat as he took aim at referee Peter Bankes.

While Man Utd couldn't be in more contrasting form, backed up by a huge derby day win against Man City on Saturday.

They've won all seven of their games since the restart, conceding just two goals in the process.

Not only could they hop back above Newcastle in the table, the Reds have the added incentive of climbing above City too and occupy second spot – for 24 hours at least.

Marcus Rashford is on fire at the moment. He knocked in the winner on Saturday despite looking like his game would end early through injury in the first half.

Team News

Crystal Palace

Joachim Andersen looks set to miss the clash with Man Utd after picking up an injury at the weekend.

The big centre-back hobbled off in the first half of the defeat, with Vieira not yet disclosing the severity of the issue.

James McArthur and Nathan Ferguson will again miss out.

Wilfried Zaha will line up against his former club once more.

Manchester United

Anthony Martial is the big, fresh injury concern for Erik ten Hag after coming off at half time in the derby.

Antony is the likely replacement for him, meaning a move centrally for Marcus Rashford.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka looks set to play right back against his former club after another impressive display on Saturday, with Donny van de Beek and Jadon Sancho again missing out.

Lisandro Martinez came off the bench late on and could have to make do with a subs spot again, with Luke Shaw continuing to impress at centre back.

Wout Weghorst could make his United debut too.

SunSport tips

Marcus Rashford 1+ shots on target in each half – 4/1 with Paddy Power – CLAIM HERE

He's arguably the in-form man in the entire Premier League and Marcus Rashford could continue his red-hot form at Palace.

The United man struck the winner in the derby to make it NINE Old Trafford games in a row in which he's scored.

For this tip, he doesn't need to even score for it to land.

He just needs to have an effort hit the target at least once in each half.

This happened in Saturday's derby and he's amassed an impressive 21 shots on target in the Premier League this season.

Man Utd to win and BTTS at 11/4 with Betfair – CLAIM HERE

United's defence have been solid as a rock in recent games, with Casemiro having a huge part to play in that.

For this though, we're going to take a punt on Palace's forward line causing United some problems on the counter attack.

The visitors will have the majority of the ball and could be got at in transition.

Added to that, if Shaw plays at centre back, there could be a soft centre from set pieces which Palace again could benefit from.

But United are still more than likely going to leave with the three points and could score a hatful in response if they fancied it.

Crystal Palace vs Man Utd – what the managers have said

We know Patrick Vieira wasn't happy with the officials on Sunday but how does he view his sides form?

There's also some key injury updates to be delivered from both sides heading into this one.

We'll have the best from each boss when they speak closer to the game.
