Crystal Palace vs Manchester United Match Preview and Team News
With Manchester United up next, it has been a very difficult start for Patrick Vieira’s side, who sit 15th in the standings with six points to their name so far. Palace has drawn both of their last two matches. They were left frustrated in a 1-1 tie with Brentford, as the Eagles tried to shut up shop too early and were punished by their enterprising opponents, for whom Yoane Wissa notched the equalizer late on. The shoe was on the other foot last weekend, with Palace keeping a dominant Newcastle United out at St James’ Park. Wilfried Zaha is the best player on the team, and it will be challenging to keep him because many great clubs want him. Jean-Philippe Mateta enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and moves towards the goal, the opponent has problems. There is just a single fitness concern for the Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira to be concerned with due to a largely intact squad. Nathan Ferguson (Achilles tendon problems) won’t play.
Erik ten Hag cannot have been too impressed on his last trip to Selhurst Park – and that is nothing against Crystal Palace’s charming but somewhat ramshackle stadium. The then-Ajax boss was in south London on May 22 to watch Manchester United’s final game of the 2021/22 Premier League season, having agreed to take charge of the club a few days earlier. Ten Hag had no input into team selection or tactics, which remained the remit of interim boss Ralf Rangnick. There is still a doubt surrounding United, though. They beat Liverpool and Arsenal with a counter-attacking strategy that can bring success in individual matches but is unlikely to be a winning formula in the long term. In games where they had more possession, such as the narrow 1-0 wins against Southampton and Leicester City, United was not quite so comfortable. They were arguably second best in last weekend’s 3-1 defeat of Arsenal too. Jadon Sancho is the engine of this team, he goes through the opponent’s defense like a fast train, has excellent ball control, and the English international can be satisfied with his performance. Scott McTominay found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the field, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy.
