Crystal Palace vs Manchester United Prediction: Premier League Match on 03.03.2021
Manchester United’s feint title chance looks to be over, but a top-four finish remains in their hands this season. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will be looking to maintain their excellent record on the road against Crystal Palace on Wednesday.
Premier League Preview
Manchester United remain unbeaten in the Premier League away from home, and will be looking to maintain that year-long record at Selhurst Park on Wednesday night. United’s form has dipped slightly recently, as they have won just twice in their last six, and have been held to four draws during this run of results. The Red Devils were held by Chelsea in their last Premier League game, with neither side doing enough to claim a win at Stamford Bridge. United need create a number of excellent chances in that game, with Mason Greenwood and Scott McTominay both going close. They still have a healthy six point advantage in the Champions League race this season, but they will be hoping to get back to winning ways ahead of a huge Manchester derby on Sunday afternoon.
Crystal Palace look almost certain to remain a Premier League side, as they have moved well clear of the drop zone in the top-flight over recent weeks. The Eagles had been considered a side that could drop into that fight, but they have since won three of their last six. Palace were forced to settle for a draw in most recent game, as they played out a 0-0 draw against Fulham. It was a game of very few chances on that occasion, and Palace failed to register a single shot on target in the stalemate. Fans will be hoping for a more attack-minded performance against United this week.
Crystal Palace vs Manchester United Head To Head
Palace have achieved some good results against United over recent seasons, as they have won two of their last three. Both of Palace’s wins during that stretch have come at Old Trafford, which includes their win in Manchester in the first game of the season for United back in September. The Red Devils won the last game between the sides in London, as Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial scored in a 2-0 win.
Crystal Palace vs Manchester United Prediction
United tend to enjoy their trips to Selhurst Park, as they are unbeaten in their last 12. That, along with their excellent away record, means that an away win is our pick for this fixture.
