Crystal Palace v Manchester United Prediction & Betting Tips, 5th March 201828th February 2018 / lee
Crystal Palace v Manchester United Premier League Preview, 5th March 8.00pm
Palace suddenly are back right in the thick of relegation problems. The Eagles have failed to win any of their last five games now and start the weekend only clear of the drop zone on goal difference. So the pressure is mounting again. Manchester United collected a good three points at home against Chelsea last weekend to move up to second. Can they stay there this weekend?
Crystal Palace v Manchester United Betting Odds*
Man Utd 8/15, Draw 14/5, Crystal Palace 11/2* (Betting Odds taken at 06:23 a.m. on February 26th, 2018)
Crystal Palace News and Form
The Eagles have managed to only pick up just the two points from their last five league games now and they are suddenly back in the relegation mire. They were unlucky not to have held out for a point last weekend at home against Spurs, falling to a Harry Kane goal a couple of minutes from time. It leaves them with a W4 D5 L5 record at home and with just one win in their last five at Selhurst Park (D2 L2). So they are just struggling and the loss against Spurs snapped a six-match scoring streak of form that they were on in the top flight. The loss of Wilfried Zaha to injury, part of a huge injury list they have going on at the moment is horrible timing for them. This is probably going to be another low scoring game for them at Selhurst Park though and under 2.5 goals at Ladbrokes looks to be the sensible route to take for even money odds* (Betting Odds taken at 00:14 a.m. on February 27th, 2018). The Eagles are in a tough sequence of games now with Chelsea and Liverpool both coming up in March as well. They are desperately going to have to dig something out. The Eagles have scored first in just three home games this season and 70% of the goals they have shipped at Selhurst Park have been in the first half of games.
Manchester United News and Form
The Red Devils got a great win at home against Chelsea last weekend even though they were second best in the game until well into the second half. They got the win though but they have lost their last two road games in the top flight against Spurs and Newcastle, both without them having scored a goal. So their away form is just a bit shaky at the moment and overall the Red Devils are W7 D3 L4 on their travels. The Red Devils have averaged 1.6 goals per away game this season while they have been level at half time in half of their away fixtures so far this season. So the half time draw at Ladbrokes is going to look a half decent proposition at 11/10 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 00:14 a.m. on February 27th, 2018). Romelu Lukaku, Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard have been pretty consistent in front goal and Lingard is their top away scorer this season with five. Lukaku though heads up the first and anytime goalscorer markets for the fixture. United have earned a clean sheet in 36% of their away games.
Crystal Palace v Manchester United Head to Head
Manchester United were comfortable 4-0 winners at home against the Eagles earlier in the season and that is a five-match winning streak that the Red Devils are on against Crystal Palace in all competitions now, the last two both with a clean sheet. The Eagles are yet to get a Premier League win over United and from the previous seventeen Premier League games between them Manchester United are W14 D3.
Who will win – Crystal Palace v Manchester United Predictions
Manchester United can heap more pressure on Crystal Palace in this one. The narrow home defeat that the Eagles suffered last weekend against Spurs could be a good indicator for this one, so back United to take the win by a one goal margin only.
