Man Utd vs Crystal Palace

Must read

Manchester United will look to carry their recent domestic cup form back into the Premier League when they host Crystal Palace on Saturday.


The Red Devils have sealed their place in this season’s Carabao Cup final, beating Nottingham Forest 5-0 on aggregate in the semi-final, with a 3-1 FA Cup fourth round win over Reading also sandwiched between the two legs.

However, their most recent Premier League match ended in a narrow 3-2 defeat to Arsenal, so they’ll hope to bounce back against a Palace side without a win in five across all competitions – a run that actually includes a 1-1 draw with United just a few weeks ago.

Here’s all you need to know about the match:

Man Utd team news

Man Utd still have Donny van de Beek, Axel Tuanzebe and Christian Eriksen definitely sidelined, while Jack Butland is ineligible to face his parent club.

Jadon Sancho might feature from the bench again just as he did against Nottingham Forest during the week. Diogo Dalot could also make a return after missing United’s last two matches, though that remains to be seen.

Man Utd starting 11 (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Martinez, Shaw; Casemiro, Fred; Antony, Fernandes, Rashford; Weghorst.

Crystal Palace team news

Wilfried Zaha is a huge miss for Palace due to a hamstring injury. He joins Joachim Andersen, Nathan Ferguson and James MacArthur on the sidelines.

Crystal Palace starting 11 (4-2-3-1): Guaita; Ward, Richards, Guehi, Mitchell; Doucoure, Schlupp; Olise, Eze, Ayew; Edouard.

Palace have a respectable recent record against Man Utd but enter this match on a poor run of form.

That, coupled with Man Utd’s success in the cups recently, will lead to a mismatch when it comes to confidence, which isn’t ideal considering Zaha is out, widening the talent gap that little bit further.

The Red Devils should get back on course in the Premier League here with a solid but not necessarily big win.

Prediction: Man Utd 2-0 Crystal Palace
