Manchester United V Crystal Palace: Preview And Betting Odds

Despite a disappointing result against Wolves on Monday, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would have been happy with most aspects of the performance at Molineux.

They will be heavy favourites to get the three points versus Crystal Palace this weekend with the Eagles coming off the back of a disappointing defeat to Sheffield United away from home.

Roy Hodgson’s side can be a difficult opponent when they are on the road, especially with the pace of Wilfried Zaha and Andros Townsend. This may be a tight affair with United cautious to gamble too much in case they are caught on the counter-attack.

Even so, they should be confident of getting the win, with both Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford in very good form upfront. The pair have scored four goals between them in their opening two games.

Solskjaer doesn’t have any new injury worries heading into the match at Old Trafford and could name an unchanged side to face Palace. Their opponents have their two first-choice centre-backs injured in James Tomkins (Groin) and Mamadou Sakho (knee) so they are weakened defensively.

At the bookies, United are unsurprisingly odds-on to win on Saturday. They are 3/8 with Betway while a draw is 4/1 at BetVictor. A victory for Palace is currently 9/1 at William Hill.
