Crystal Palace vs Manchester United Preview and Prediction 2021

Crystal Palace vs Manchester United predictions for Wednesday’s Premier League clash at Selhurst Park. Man Utd are aiming to get back to winning ways when they travel to London to take on the Eagles. Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.

Both teams have scored in four of the last five meetings between Palace and United at Selhurst Park.

Both teams have scored in six of Man Utd’s last seven away games against clubs in the bottom half.

Man Utd have won on each of their last five trips to Selhurst Park.

Man Utd have averaged 1.5 goals per 90 minutes across their last ten away league assignments.

Palace hoping for unlikely double

Crystal Palace embarrassed Man Utd at Old Trafford in the early exchanges of the campaign, and the Eagles will be hoping to be awkward opponents for the Red Devils again when the teams reconvene for Wednesday’s rematch at Selhurst Park.

Palace’s results in February were a mixed bag, with fine away wins at Newcastle (2-1) and Brighton (2-1) cancelled out by abject performances at home to Burnley (0-3) and Fulham (0-0), indeed, the Eagles’ habit of dropping points on their own patch has been holding them back all season.

Roy Hodgson’s team are more comfortable as counter attackers, and they have collected more points on the road than at Selhurst Park this term as a result.

United maintain top-four pursuit

Man Utd carved out a useful point in a largely uneventful 0-0 draw at Chelsea on Sunday, and their stalemate at Stamford Bridge allowed them to hold on to the Premier League’s only remaining unbeaten away record this season.

The result keeps United just ahead of the pack in the race to finish second behind runaway leaders Man City, though Solskjaer’s side, who have shared the spoils five times in their last seven away assignments, will need to shake their drawing habit to clinch their spot as runners up.

Goals at both ends at Selhurst Park?

Palace always seem to cause problems for United, and both teams have scored in three of the last four meetings between the clubs and in four of their last five encounters at Selhurst Park.

United’s defensive record has been improving, but they often drop their guard against teams from the division’s lower half, and both teams notched in six of their last seven visits to sides placed in the Premier League’s bottom ten.

With the Eagles’ knack of inflicting damage against United well established, backing both teams to score again is advised for Wednesday’s tussle, though our 2-1 correct score prediction tips Solskjaer’s top four chasers to eventually prevail.

United have battled their way to victory in each of their last five visits to Selhurst Park, despite keeping just one clean sheet along the way, and we’re tipping history to repeat itself this week.

Crystal Palace injuries and team news

Crystal Palace have major injury issues to contend with ahead of Wednesday’s game. Of those, Nathaniel Clyne is the closest to a return, but James McArthur, Connor Wickham, Jeffrey Schlupp, Mamadou Sakho, Wayne Hennessey, Nathan Ferguson, Wilfried Zaha and James Tomkins all remain sidelined.

Manchester United injuries and team news

Manchester United were able to call upon Scott McTominay, Daniel James and Donny van de Beek on Sunday after the trio all recovered from minor knocks.

Edinson Cavani was missing however and the veteran striker remains a doubt with a muscle strain.

Paul Pogba, while Juan Mata and Phil Jones remain out too, though Nemanja Matic, Eric Bailly and Dean Henderson among others will hope to see minutes.
