Crystal Palace vs Manchester United Preview and Prediction – May 06, 2024

In a highly anticipated Monday night showdown, Crystal Palace prepares to host Manchester United at Selhurst Park, seeking their fourth victory in five matches under new manager Oliver Glasner.

Match Preview

Under new manager Oliver Glasner, Palace has risen to 14th in the Premier League, trailing sixth-placed Man Utd by 14 points.

Last weekend, Palace secured a 1-1 draw against Fulham, with Jeffrey Schlupp’s remarkable long-range goal leveling the score in the 87th minute.

With recent wins over Liverpool, West Ham United and Newcastle United, Palace enters Monday’s game on a four-match unbeaten streak.

Glasner’s impact since Roy Hodgson’s departure is evident, with only two defeats in their last eight matches.

Winning five of their last eight home league games, Palace aims for another positive outcome against unpredictable Manchester United.

On the other hand, Man Utd was held to a 1-1 draw by relegation-threatened Burnley last weekend, conceding an 87th-minute penalty.

However, they have avoided defeat in their last four Premier League matches, with one win and three draws.

Yet, they haven’t won any of their last four away league games, earning just two points from a possible 12 during that period.

Struggling in their away fixtures, Erik ten Hag’s team might find it challenging to secure all three points at Selhurst Park.

Head-to-Head:

Palace secured a memorable 1-0 win at Old Trafford in September, winning two of their last four league encounters with United.

In their last nine league meetings, Palace defeated United four times, with two draws and three losses.

Team News & Updates:

Palace will miss Marc Guehi, Cheick Doucoure, Jefferson Lerma, Sam Johnstone and Rob Holding, with doubts over Eberechi Eze.

Man Utd’s injury list includes Anthony Martial, Jonny Evans, Victor Lindelof, Luke Shaw, Raphael Varane, Lisandro Martinez, Scott McTominay and Tyrell Malacia.

Prediction & Analysis:

With both teams expected to attack, anticipate an entertaining encounter with over 2.5 goals. Despite Palace’s recent form, United’s quality should see them secure a victory at Selhurst Park.
