Crystal Palace vs Manchester United
England – Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 3 March 2021
Kick-off at 20:15 UK/ 21:15 CET
Venue: Selhurst Park.
The Red Devils are placed second in the table at the moment, and are being furiously chased by the likes of Leicester, and West Ham.
Suffice it to say that they are under immense pressure, and need to post some urgent points on the board, especially with the Foxes having an easier fixture this match-day.
Going on, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men have scored the most number of goals in the English top flight this season, and they have been on an impressive run on the road as well.
Meanwhile, the Eagles are struggling to show any kind of consistency, and are dropping points at an alarming rate.
They have failed to even be a formidable opponent even at their home, and have been conceding heavily all through this campaign.
Moreover, the Devils also have a good h2h record against this rival over the years.
For the reasons, expect Manchester United to deliver a winning performance this Wednesday at the Selhurst Park.

Crystal Palace vs Manchester United Prediction
Roy Hodgson’s men were held to a goalless draw the last match-day at home, by Fulham. In the meantime, the Devils were held to a goalless draw the past game week on the road, by Chelsea.
Going on, the Eagles were winless in 12 of their last 16 overall fixtures, and they have won just twice at home since the first week of November.
On the other hand, their counterparts were unbeaten in 26 of their former 30 overall matches, and two of the total four losses during this stretch had come in the Champions League. Also, one of the remaining two defeats had come against arch-rivals, City.
Furthermore, on the road, they are on a ten-game unbeaten run. And finally, they also have a superb h2h record against this opponent over the years.
Considering all these stats, expect Manchester United to post the three points on the board.
