Manchester United – Crystal Palace
Manchester United hosts Crystal Palace in a match from the third round of the Premier League. Let’s take our attention to the Old Trafford in Manchester in order to examine this clash on Saturday. Let’s go.
Manchester United started the new season with a thrilling win over Chelsea, but in the second round the Red Devils lost two points during the visit to Wolverhampton Wanderers. The game at the Molineux ended with a 1-1 draw. Anthony Martial opened the score for United after an assist from Marcus Rashford, but after the halftime break Ruben Neves equalised with an amazing shot for Wolves.
It’s going to be an interesting season for Manchester United. This time Ole Gunnar Solskajer is not just the caretaker. He had the chance to work with the team during the summer, so now it’s going to be curious to see how the team will look. The Red Devils impressed against Chelsea, but they took a step back during the visit to Wolves.
Crystal Palace won just one point from the first two rounds. After the draw against Everton in the first round, Palace suffered their first defeat for the season. Roy Hodgson’s team visited the newcomers Sheffield United and suffered a 0-1 defeat. John Lundstram scored the only goal in the game just two minutes after the halftime break.
After a difficult fight against relegation last season, now Crystal Palace are getting ready for more of the same. The Londoners would be happy with any point they can win, especially away from home.
Nobody would argue that Manchester United are the favourites against Crystal Palace. If they want to do something significant this season, the Red Devils are obligated to win matches like this one. Their first home game for the campaign was impressive, so let’s see how Solskjaer’s boys will do on Saturday.
