Manchester United vs Crystal Palace match preview

Manchester United vs Crystal Palace match preview

They're undefeated this season and have out-scored nearly everyone in the league, scoring at a rate of nearly three goals per match and five more goals than the next-closest team in the charts.

Manchester United will return to Premier League action after the worldwide break when they take on Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday 14 October.

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson: "There's never a good time to play Manchester United".

Rashford was involved in the goal and looked initially as if he might try to claim it as his free-kick, whipped in from the left, flew in at the far post.

Palace have now gone seven league games without a goal.

In Sunday's three matches, sixth-placed Liverpool meet up with their former manager Rafa Benitez, now in charge of Newcastle United; Arsenal host Brighton and Everton are at home to Burnley. They've also maintained a stellar defensive record, giving up just two goals in their six matches on the season so far.

The sequence occurred just three minutes into the Premier League matchup and led to United's first goal early in the game.

Crystal Palace is making history in the English Premier League.

"You could see [Antonio] Valencia, Phil [Jones], [Marouane] Fellaini, [Juan] Mata and [Marcus] Rashford were at a different stage than [Romelu] Lukaku and [Henrikh] Mkhitaryan, which is normal".

"There could be more pain ahead but we won't be phased as we work on our task that we have ahead of us as a group". And according to expected goals (xG), a stat that measures the quality of scoring chances, one would expect Crystal Palace have scored about six goals, not zero. Anthony Martial also picked up a knock against CSKA but should be fit. "Fellaini was Man of the Match but Matic impressed me; he's controlled the midfield since the beginning of the season and Ashley Young put in a good shift on the left-hand side".

Manchester United won five matches and draw one matches in this season. In six games, the Eagles have conceded 13 goals and scored zero. United were their usual ruthless selves, but Palace looked unusually terrible.

Following the loss of Christian Benteke to a knee injury, winger Bakary Sako is deployed in a centre-forward role this afternoon.
