Crystal Palace vs Manchester United
England – Premier League
Date: Monday, 5 March 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Selhurst Park (London).
Manchester United have made a massive step towards booking the top four spot come May when they turned things around and saw off the likes of Chelsea 2-1 last time out at Old Trafford. Romelu Lukaku and Jesse Lingard created the comeback after Willian’s opener for the champions and Jose Mourinho’s men are now six points adrift of Chelsea who are just outside of the top four at this stage.
The Red Devils will be looking to capitalize on such win on Monday when they are set to close the 29th round with the clash against Crystal Palace. The visitors are the form favourites ahead of the tie at Selhurst Park given that the Glaziers have lost back-to-back outings to Everton and Tottenham Hotspur in the last couple of rounds.
Crystal Palace are actually winless in last five league fixtures which is a streak that has pushed them down into the relegation scrap once again. Roy Hodgson has had huge issues with injured players over the last couple of weeks and he does not have many reasons to be optimistic ahead f this clash with the league’s heavyweights.
Mourinho’s side has thus successfully rebounded from a 1-0 defeat to Newcastle United on their previous travel in the league. A three-pointer here would further raise the spirits inside the dressing room ahead of an important reverse fixture in their Champions League tie against Sevilla. Romelu Lukaku seems to have found the wanted shape and he might well be the man to make a difference here as well and he is our top suggestion for the anytime goalscorer market.
