Crystal Palace vs Manchester United Team News

On the last match day, Crystal Palace capitulated to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of potential relegation candidates Aston Villa – who sit nineteenth on the log and are within touching distance of the safe zone.

The Eagles had an early goal chalked off by VAR on the basis of a handball. From there, Villa took over proceedings and opened the scoring in first-half stoppage time through a Trezeguet finish. Their domination of the game continued after the break and a second was added promptly to complete Trezeguet’s brace. 

The Eagles’ play was largely insipid and uninspiring. Their woes were fully amplified when striker Christian Benteke was sent off for an earlier off-the-ball altercation after full-time.

Manchester United however, have been in very good form since the return of the Premier League. Their play, especially in attack, has been exciting and a joy to watch. In their last match, the Red Devils were held to a 2-2 draw by a stubborn and persistent Southampton side.

The match was United’s opportunity to push past Leicester City into the Champions League spots however, the resilient Saints put up a fight and managed to divide the spoils equally. 

The Saints drew first blood early on in the twelfth minute with the Red Devils returning the favor through a superb Rashford goal-in which the team’s excellent link-up play was made evident. Anthony Martial then put United ahead with a powerfully hit rocket. 
The Saints kept up their persistence and managed to grab an equalizer in the last minute of stoppage time.

Owing to their good and consistent run of form, the Red Devils are huge favorites for Champions League qualification. They are currently on a run of 11 unbeaten games in the Premier League.
