Man Utd vs Crystal Palace preview

Manchester United have been on a great run of form recently. They comfortably reached the Carabao Cup final in the week, overcoming Nottingham Forest 2-0 on the night to give them a comprehensive 5-0 aggregate win. In the league, Eric ten Hag’s men have only lost one of their last five games — that last-gasp defeat to Arsenal. The loss of Christian Eriksen to injury is undoubtedly a blow. However, the deadline-day loan signing of Marcel Sabitzer gives them plenty of experience in midfield. The Austrian should make his Premier League debut on Saturday alongside the ever-impressive Casemiro. Elsewhere, Marcus Rashford can’t seem to stop scoring and will cause plenty of problems for the Palace defense.

Crystal Palace boss Patrick Viera will be relishing a return to Old Trafford, where he was part of many hard-fought encounters during his playing days. As a manager, he has undoubtedly improved the Eagles. However, they have slipped in recent weeks. They were knocked out of the FA Cup by Southampton and have only won one of their last five Premier League games. A victory against a team challenging for the title could give them a real boost for the second half of the season. This will be made much harder due to the absence of star winger Wilfred Zaha, who is expected to be out for a number of weeks with a hamstring injury. 

These two teams met recently, sharing a 1-1 draw at Selhurst Park as Michael Olise scored a stunning late free kick. This should be a competitive encounter then, so don’t miss the Man Utd vs Crystal Palace live stream.
