What Trueform says for Crystal Palace vs Man Utd
Crystal Palace continued a fine run of form with a cracking 4-1 win at Leicester and look a value pick to beat Manchester United at Selhurst Park.
The Red Devils put an awful lot of effort into Sunday’s goalless draw with Liverpool and suffered some damaging injuries during that contest.
With the Eagles playing with great energy, we reckon 2/1 for a home win is tempting enough to be our initial Crystal Palace vs Man Utd prediction.
A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds
Palace had just 35 per cent of the possession at King Power Stadium but really impressed on the break as they put Leicester to the sword.
The Eagles did enjoy some luck with Michy Batshuayi’s opener but the loan signing has certainly added a fresh spark up front.
Roy Hodgson described Batshuayi as “looking very lively”, while Wilfried Zaha’s brace and a Luka Milivojevic penalty sealed an emphatic victory.
“We’re on a good run of form and it’s a victory which will give us a lot of heart,” Palace boss Hodgson added.
“If we’re capable of coming to a team like this and also getting a win at Man City, I’ve got to believe in this team. We’re never beaten.”
That made it eight wins in 14 league and cup fixtures and we like 10/1 for a 2-1 success here from the Crystal Palace vs Man Utd odds.
Last Palace line-up: Guaita, Ward, Van Aanholt, Tomkins, Sakho, Schlupp, Milivojevic, Townsend, McArthur, Zaha, Batshuayi.
Mamadou Sakho has been ruled out because of a knee injury, Martin Kelly has a muscle problem and Aaron Wan-Bissaka is still struggling with a hamstring issue.
A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
United responded well to a recent Champions League loss against PSG, winning 2-0 at Chelsea in the FA Cup and then sharing the spoils with Liverpool on home turf.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side dug deep to match the title-chasing Reds, but that hard-earned point did come at a cost.
After going into the game without Nemanja Matic, United also lost Ander Herrera to injury, leaving Scott McTominay and Andreas Pereira in the engine room.
With Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard then coming off before half-time, too, Marcus Rashford had to soldier on despite showing clear signs of discomfort himself.
Man of the match Luke Shaw commented: “We still weren’t at our best but overall I think we created the best chances and I feel we should have won.”
However, facing an in-form Palace at Selhurst Park will present a different set of problems that United may struggle to cope with.
Let’s finish off our Crystal Palace vs Man Utd betting tips by taking 4/1 for a home win and both teams to score.
Last Man Utd line-up: De Gea, Lindelof, Smalling, Young, Shaw, Pogba, Mata, Herrera, McTominay, Lukaku, Rashford.
United could be without as many as 10 players through injury, so youngsters Tahith Chong, James Garner and Angel Gomes will be involved and Marcos Rojo returns.
