Manchester United News and Form
Manchester United could easily have had six points from six at the start of the new season, but they missed a chance to take a win against Wolves on Monday night. Paul Pogba failed to convert a second-half penalty which left the red Devils having to settle for a point at Molineux. But still, there have been signs of the red Devils getting their attacking form going this season.
They look quick and they look direct and are happy to play out on the counter-attack. Of their forwards, Marcus Rushford has been the pick of the bunch so far. The England striker is at 21/20 in the anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on August 20th, 2019 at 8:15 a.m.).
Even though United could not break the top four last season in the Premier league they did put together a fairly decent home record of W10 D6 L3. Their big drop in form at home happened against the other teams who finished inside of the top seven along with them. They will be expected to see off Crystal Palace on the weekend.

Crystal Palace News and Form
It has not happened for Crystal Palace so far in this season’s Premier League. They go into the weekend as the only team along with Watford to have not scored a league goal for this campaign. The Eagles started their season with a 0-0 home draw against Everton, and their opponents had been reduced to 10 men in the second have that fixture. So that was a missed opportunity at home by Crystal Palace to get a positive start.
In their second game of the season, they made a trip to Bramall Lane to face the newly-promoted Sheffield United. The Eagles made the long trip back South with a 1-0 defeat behind them. It was a very strange summer for Crystal Palace as they didn’t look to strengthen in the areas in which they needed the most help. Quite where the goals are going to come from remains a mystery. Away from home in last season’s Premier League, Palace did earn more wins than they did at home. The Eagles finished with an away record of W9 D2 L8.
