The Manchester Utd Premier League season starts with the Man United vs Crystal Palace live stream today (a week later than most teams at their tier). This fixture sees the team looking to start on a better footing than last season, where they placed third. 

And the last thing the Manchester team wants is a loss to Palace, which would give fans and analysts the wrong impression about which way the team is headed. And there's a fair chance that Roy Hodgson's Eagles can take this game at Old Trafford, so expect a lively contest.

Yes, Palace is returning to the site of their 2-1 victory with a solid squad that mixes youth and experience, while expectations are high for United's latest signee, Donny van de Beek, who comes over from Ajax. His five year deal may rise in value, as high as £40 million, depending on how things go. 

Paul Pogba's status is uncertain, as while he returned to the team (after contracting COVID-19), Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he's unsure if the French star will be ready by tomorrow's game. 

With momentum on the line, you don't want to miss a moment of the Man United vs Crystal Palace live stream. Here's everything you need to know to watch Man Utd's first Prem game of the season:
