For the second time this week, Manchester United and Crystal Palace will clash at Old Trafford. The Red Devils gained the upper hand in the first meeting between the sides on Tuesday, as they claimed a straightforward 3-0 win in the EFL Cup. However, can the Eagles respond in the Premier League on Saturday?
Before Betting On Man United vs Crystal Palace
It has been a turbulent start to the new Premier League season for Man United, as the Red Devils currently sit ninth in the standings. However, the confidence appeared to return to the team in midweek, as they claimed a straightforward 3-0 home success against Palace in the EFL Cup to record a second straight victory across all competitions.
But, United will be looking to get back on track in home Premier League fixtures this weekend after losing their most recent game at Old Trafford against Brighton. The Red Devils haven’t lost back to back games at the Theatre of Dreams since November 2021. However, they have allowed five goals in their last two matches at Old Trafford, which is only one fewer than they had allowed in their previous 17 home matches combined.
Crystal Palace will also have a point to prove this weekend, as they have gone three without a win across all competitions. The Eagles were held to a goalless draw in their most recent Premier League fixture against Fulham last weekend, and a response will be needed following their no-show in the EFL Cup in midweek against United.
It hasn’t been for the lack of trying in recent weeks, as the Eagles have registered 13 shots across their last two matches. They also have a decent record in this fixture, as they have suffered just three defeats in their previous eight against the Red Devils.
