Manchester United seek a return to winning ways in the Premier League when they welcome Crystal Palace to Old Trafford this weekend. United’s Premier League campaign has gone from bad to worse after the recent result which has left them 12 points adrift of Manchester City. Crystal Palace are in danger of slipping back into the bottom three with the club only ahead of the bottom three due to better goal difference.

Manchester United were outclassed by rivals Manchester City in the recent match at the Etihad Stadium. The 3-1 defeat for United brought a conclusion to a three-game winning sequence in all competitions.

Crystal Palace are at a price of 7.50 to win this match. Yet, it is difficult to back a team that has lost eight of the 12 league games that they have played this season. Even though Palace up against a poor Manchester United team, they may not be in a position to pick up a positive result largely due to the lack of any presence going forward. Our preview would go with a win for Manchester United.

Manchester United vs Crystal Palace draw odds: 5.00
Crystal Palace win odds: 7.50
Correct Score odds
Jose Mourinho continues to change the team in the hope of finding a squad that will be capable of coming up with consistent performances. The struggles faced by Romelu Lukaku have led to the likes of Anthony Martial capitalising on the situation. Even though United are not great going forward, the team has enough quality and strength to come up with a couple of goals. Palace are almost entirely dependent on the Zaha for magic, but they can nick a goal. Our correct score prediction would pick a 2-1 win for United.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
United have been shaky at both ends of the pitch and this has resulted in an inconsistent spell of form for the club. The Crystal Palace team may not be entirely dependable in terms of scoring goals, but our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals with both teams expected to score.

First Goalscorer odds
Anthony Martial has been in excellent form to offset Lukaku’s struggles in recent weeks. The Frenchman has been able to come up with a goal in five out of the last seven appearances for United – including a penalty in the derby against Manchester City. Even though Martial has never scored in five appearances against Palace, our first goalscorer prediction would back the 22-year-old on recent form.
