Crystal Palace v Manchester United Preview, Premiership, Wednesday 14th December

Have Crystal Palace finally started to pull themselves out of the rut they have been in recently? With a win over Southampton and then the 3 – 3 away draw to Hull City at the weekend they very well could be. If these results had gone the other way then it would be Palace who are sitting in the relegation zone and no doubt panicking with the threat of going down upon their shoulders.

Prior to the last two results they had lost six games on the trot all being in the Premier League competition. Although Crystal Palace are at home to face Manchester United this Wednesday they are not considered as the favourites to win this match. The club have a tough game on Wednesday and also afterwards when they face Chelsea and Arsenal in the coming weeks.

Manchester United earned an exceptional draw at the weekend with them only the second team this season who have managed to beat Tottenham Hotspurs in the league. The club have recently struggled for wins in the league although the usual results for them ending in draws. They did throw away points against Arsenal, West Ham United and Everton recently, so a win against Spurs was well needed.

On top of this Premier League win we have seen Manchester United qualify for the knockout stages of the Europa League, in which they face French hopefuls Saint Ettienne. That should be a result Manchester United should grind out although the French side can be difficult at times. United have an easier run of games coming up and should really pick up maximum points if they play well.

Crystal Palace Team News:

Crystal Palace are waiting on some late fitness tests for Bakary Sako and James Tomkins with the duo missing out in the draw against Hull City last weekend. Loic Remy, Steve Mandanda and Connor Wickham are all injured while Jason Puncheon misses out due to a suspension.

Manchester United Team News:

Sadly for Manchester United they will be without the exciting Henrikh Mkhitaryan. Although we have been told the injury is not serious the midfielder is unlikely to return until around Boxing Day. Captain Wayne Rooney should start on Wednesday although Antonio Valencia misses out to to being suspended.

Crystal Palace v Manchester United Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

Midweek Premiership action on Wednesday will see Manchester United travel to Selhurst Part to face struggling side Crystal Palace. United will want to continue with another win after beating Tottenham Hotspurs as they seriously are in need of playing catch up against the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester City.

If Crystal Palace do not start picking up the wins they could continue dropping down the table and eventually into a relegation position. They did manage a rare home win against Southampton recently, and did also almost throw away a win against Hull City having gone 2 – 1 up. Eight minutes later they were losing 3 – 2 yet managed to secure a point in the dying moments of the match with a Frazer Campbell effort.

Crystal Palace have some tough games coming up with the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal, so we could see them potentially lose four of their next five games. Where as opponents Manchester United have an easier run of games, with the toughest set to be West Bromwich Albion away from home. Could United win the next five and seriously mount a challenge this season?

My predictions for this game does back that of Manchester United to win, although I do see them potentially making a meal of it. For this one I am going to take both teams to score and for Manchester United to win the game come the end of 90 minutes. My next prediction if for Juan Mata to score on the day and for the away side to win the match.
