Crystal Palace look to put some more distance between themselves and the bottom three but will be up against it as a resurgent Manchester United head to Selhurst Park.


The race for the top four is well and truly on for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United despite what looked like an impossible task at the beginning of December.

Paul Pogba is playing like the man we all knew he was, whilst Marcus Rashford is scoring for fun and the whole squad appears to have a harmony that has been missing since the days of Sir Alex Ferguson.

Times are good indeed and Crystal Palace should be fearful. The Eagles have not recorded a victory over the Red Devils in their last 12 meetings, so it is easy to see why some of the most popular sportsbooks are backing United for the win.

However, it is not all doom and gloom for Roy Hodgson’s side. Prior to the Leicester game, the Eagles were on their longest unbeaten run in all competitions recording three wins and two draws across the FA Cup and Premier League.

That has enabled the Londoners to have a little breathing space between the bottom three but only just with the games coming thick and fast.

The problem is Palace’s home record is poor with just 13 points collected on home soil. They have actually achieved more points on the road this season and that makes United the best prediction to get the win.

Three United clean sheets in their last four meetings with Palace suggests the Red Devils have the measure of Hodgson’s side making a 2-0 away win the way to go in this one.

Head to Head

Look away now Palace fans as no win in the last 12 meetings makes for grim reading.

However, the Eagles did manage a point at Old Trafford earlier in the season in a rather tepid 0-0 in November.

Overall, Crystal Palace have recorded seven wins over United with the Red Devils claiming a vastly superior 36 wins, and there’s been a total of 11 draws.


  • Manchester United won the first ever meeting between the two 2-1 during a 1922 Division Two clash.
  • Palace are yet to reach double figures for goals scored at home in the Premier League this season.
  • Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha has been dispossessed more times than anyone else this season (92).
  • Only Tottenham has scored more goals on the road this season than United.
  • Palace are unbeaten in their last three home games in all competitions.
