Manchester United v Crystal Palace LIVE! Premier League match streams, latest team news, line-ups, TV today
Manchester United are looking to claim 13 consecutive wins at Old Trafford in all competitions as they host Crystal Palace in the Premier League this afternoon. Erik ten Hag’s side continue to impress on all fronts and, having booked their place in the Carabao Cup final midweek, confidence will be high.
It’s United’s first game in the league for nearly two weeks, the first since they were beaten by Arsenal in a thrilling encounter. While it hurts any slim hopes of a title charge, victory here against Palace will give them a cushion of six points in the race for the top four, which seems to be a higher priority.
Patrick Vieira’s side held United to a draw last month at Selhurst Park, and also scored a point against Newcastle in their last action a fortnight ago. Old Trafford is a ground where the Eagles have enjoyed success in recent seasons. Follow Man United vs Crystal Palace with our LIVE blog below!
Sabitzer in the building…
Standard Sports Prediction
Palace are used to making things difficult at top teams and should push United closer, but the Red Devils are still expected to get the breakthrough.
No one has been able to stop them at Old Trafford in recent months – it seems unlikely Palace will be able to do so.
A Man United 1-0 victory.
Crystal Palace Team News
