Our Predictions

Manchester United 3-1 Crystal Palace

United can create enough chances to score 3 goals however they have been struggling defensively this season. As a result, it will be tough for them to keep a clean sheet. Only one training session with Rangnick won’t solve the problems and the success won’t come quickly and easily. In addition, Palace can take advantage of this situation and surprise United with their absolute best.
