What Trueform says for Man Utd vs Crystal Palace
Despite suffering a derby defeat last time out, Manchester United are regularly tracking well above Crystal Palace on our Trueform chart.
The Eagles have picked up just one point in their last six top-flight fixtures and are only above the relegation zone on goal difference.
United have won six straight head-to-head encounters, leading at both half-time and full-time in the last three meetings at Old Trafford.
Punters can get 21/20 for that to happen again here and that is our opening Man Utd vs Crystal Palace prediction.
A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
United were always on the back foot when facing neighbours City at Etihad Stadium and can have few complaints about that 3-1 loss.
Anthony Martial gave the Red Devils some hope when pulling it back to 2-1 with a penalty on 58 minutes, but Jose Mourinho’s side could make no impression up front from then on.
To be fair, Mourinho did have a point when saying United may have felt the strain of tough away wins at Bournemouth and Juventus, stating: “They were tired physically and mentally.”
The Red Devils had previously seen off Everton at this venue and can be content with their overall form of late.
Martial has been particularly impressive, netting six times in seven games, and 9/2 for him to open the scoring stands out from the Man Utd vs Crystal Palace odds.
Last Man Utd line-up: De Gea, Lindelof, Smalling, Young, Shaw, Lingard, Herrera, Fellaini, Matic, Rashford, Martial.
Paul Pogba is set to return to action, but Luke Shaw serves a one-game suspension, having picked up his fifth yellow card of the season.
A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds
Palace will be glad to finish off a tough run of fixtures here, having faced Everton, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham in their last four Premier League matches.
The Eagles were left to rue a missed header by James Tomkins when going 1-0 behind at home to Spurs on 66 minutes.
Jeffrey Schlupp, Andros Townsend and substitute Alexander Sorloth were then all denied by Hugo Lloris as they pushed for an equaliser.
Roy Hodgson insisted: “The gap between us and the top teams isn’t that big – we’ve shown that in the last few games.
“The players aren’t allowing themselves to become disheartened. The attitude throughout was excellent.”
Palace haven’t scored on their last five visits to Old Trafford but we feel there is value in backing them to buck that trend.
The Eagles have netted on five of their six Premier League road trips this term and United have only kept one clean sheet in 11 games.
Let’s add 11/5 for a home win and both teams to score to our Man Utd vs Crystal Palace betting tips.
Last Palace line-up: Hennessey, Van Aanholt, Tomkins, Sakho, Wan-Bissaka, Milivojevic, Meyer, Kouyate, Townsend, McArthur, Ayew.
Palace will welcome Wilfried Zaha back from a hamstring injury, while Tomkins has recovered from a knee problem.
Mamadou Sakho has shaken off a knock he picked up on international duty, but Christian Benteke, Connor Wickham, Joel Ward and Scott Dann are all out.
