Premier League: Crystal Palace vs Manchester United

Crystal Palace vs Manchester United Betting Tip and Predictions. In the Round 16 of Premier League, Crystal Palace host Manchester United at Selhurst Park. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Crystal Palace vs Manchester United.

Crystal Palace didn’t make the good start of the season in Premier League and they are currently standing at the 15th position with only two points more than the first team in the relegation zone. Their main goal is to stay in the best football league in England and avoid relegation, so every points is very important for them. After very poor period and 6 lost games in a row, Crystal Palace have improved their performance and they are unbeaten in the last two games. First, they beat Southampton 3-0, while in the last round they took an important point against Hull City. The match against Manchester United is very important for them and they will try to do their best in order to stay unbeaten. Their top scorer, Benteke, who scored 8 goals this season, has exploded in the recent period and hit the net 4 times in the last three Premier League matches. Belgian striker could be the most dangerous player for visitors, but except him there are other quality players which can be very dangerous for David de Gea. Home side scored 10 goals in the last three matches, but on the other side they’ve conceded 8 goals.

Manchester United didn’t start good in Premier League, but they still have a chance to finish the season in Top 3. In the previous round they beat Tottenham 1-0 and move up on the 5th position, but the difference between them and leader Chelsea is still big 13 points. Manchester United’s midfielder, Mkhitaryan, who started to play much better, and scored two goals in the last two games in all competitions, has picked up an injury, so he will miss this game, but he should be ready for the next game against West Brom. In the next period visitors have no tough games and that fact could be their chance to improve their performance and collect many points. After the match against Crystal Palace, Jose Mourinho‘s men will play against West Brom (A), Sunderland (H), Middlesbrough (H) and West Ham (A), so they want to try to take all 15 points. The match against Palace is their priority and they will try to do their best in order to secure another three points.

Team News

Home side miss Jason Puncheon through suspension, while James Tomkins, Bakary Sako, Steve Mandanda, Loic Remy, Connor Wickham and Pape Souare are all injured. Jonathan Benteke is doubtful. On the other side, visitors will be without injured Chris Smalling and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Antonio Valencia is suspended, while Luke Shaw is doubtful.

Manchester United: de Gea, Bailly, Jones, Darmian, Young, Herrera, Carrick, Lingard, Pogba, Martial, Ibrahimovic.

Crystal Palace vs Manchester United Prediction

Home side play very good in the recent period and scoring many goals, but their defence is very shaky and it will be hard for them to secure their net. I expect interesting match between Crystal Palace vs Manchester United and at least three goals.
