Manchester United vs Crystal Palace Prediction & Match Preview

Saturday, August 24 – 10:00 EST – Old Trafford

Manchester United started off the new season in the best way possible. They defeated rivals Chelsea 4-0 at the Old Trafford. They will now look to build on that result, as they play their second game in front of their home crowd. On another note, Manchester United was held to a 1-1 draw on Monday when they faced Wolverhampton. Martial opened the scoring for the Red Devils in the first half, however Neves was able to equalize for the Wolves after the break. Pogba had a golden chance to put Manchester United back in the lead, but he failed his chance from the penalty spot. They will now look to bounce back and deliver another win to the home fans.

Crystal Palace come into Saturday’s match with no wins to show for so far this season. They held Everton to a 0-0 draw in the opening match and then lost to Sheffield United 1-0. The visitors will look to at least get on the score sheet for the first time this season. It will be a tough task, as they last managed to beat the Red Devils in a League Cup match back in 2011. We believe that Manchester United will have what it takes to get a result at the Old Trafford. It could be an uphill battle for Crystal Palace if they concede the first goal to the home team. They will need to improve on their lack of goals in the first two matches this season if they want any chance of getting a result on Saturday.
