Crystal Palace v Man Utd

The Eagles come into this match having lost their last 5 premier league games and Man United will see this as a must win match to stay in the hunt for the Champion’s League positions. They’ll also be keen for revenge since Palace beat them back in August.

Palace have only won 6 of their 17 matches at Selhurst Park and motivation may be lacking for a team who are safe and nothing to play for.

United are odds of 1.33 to win and were a similar price to do the business at home to Southampton but I think the United win here is more likely than it was last time out. Easy to say now, after the 2-2 draw but we did correctly pick Southampton to win on the handicap.

In that match United created some good opportunities and Southampton played at a very high level and were still lucky to grab an injury time equaliser.

Bruno Fernandes was quiet against the Saints and having been substituted I expect him to want to put in a good show against Roy Hodgson’s men.

Palace will be without Christian Benteke after a stupid sending off following their match away at Aston Villa and the Eagles will be without Schlupp, Tomkins and Cahill.

For United, Luke Shaw came off injured against Southapton and is expected to miss out.

United have won 5 of their last 6 when visiting Selhurst Park and have scored at least twice in those wins. Given how free scoring they are at the moment, I’m expecting a United win by a couple of goals and backing United with a handicap of -1.5.

Recommended Bet: Man Utd -1.5 at evens with Bet365.
