In the second round in the Premier League on September 19, Manchester United will start, which will play their first match of the new season against Crystal Palace – we have prepared a forecast for this meeting.
Due to their participation in the later stages of the Europa League , Manchester United received one week more rest. Therefore, the start of the “red devils” in the Premier League was postponed to the second round.
In this transfer window, Manchester United are unusually passive. The Mancunians only bought central midfielder Donnie van de Beck from Ajax for 39 million euros. Of the other enhancements, we can only mention Marcos Rojo, Chris Smalling and Dean Henderson who returned from leases. The latter was Sheffield United’s main goalkeeper last season. Manchester United was also not involved in sales. The loudest transfer from Manchester United was the transfer of Alexis Sanchez to Inter as a free agent. But this has been planned for a long time.
Before the start of the season, Manchester United played one friendly match. The Red Devils lost the least to Aston Villa (0: 1).
Axel Tuanzebe, Chris Smalling, Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones will definitely not play for Manchester United. Questionable for the match Paul Pogba.
Crystal Palace did not make any sudden moves in the transfer market.
Also, the Eagles did not win eight matches in a row in the last championship. However, Roy Hodgson’s wards started well in the Premier League. Crystal Palace beat Southampton at home (1: 0). True, the Eagles left the League Cup after that. Palace drew 0-0 with Bournemouth, losing to the Cherries on penalties.
Crystal Palace had successful friendly matches before the season. True, all the Eagles’ rivals were clearly weaker than themselves. Palace beat Millwall (1: 0), Oxford (2: 1), defeated Charlton (3: 0) and drew with Bronnby (1: 1).
Interestingly, the Southampton Eagles won without a number of injured players. Currently, the Crystal Palace infirmary contains Patrick van Anholt, Nathan Ferguson, James Tomkins, Gary Cahill, Connor Wickham and Christian Benteke. The participation of Gyro Riedewald is questionable.
Manchester United are unbeaten in the Premier League for 14 straight matches.
The Red Devils’ unbeaten home streak at Old Trafford in the championship is seven meetings.
In four of six past home matches, Manchester United in the Premier League played the “total over 2.5” bet.
Crystal Palace have won just one of their last nine Premier League games.
On the road to the Premier League, Crystal Palace has been unable to score four games in a row. The Eagles lost all these matches.
Manchester United have beaten Crystal Palace in six of their previous eight head-to-head matches. Last season, Manchester United defeated the Eagles 2-0 away, but at Old Trafford the Red Devils lost 1-2.

Bookmakers do not leave many chances for Crystal Palace in this match, even despite the relatively successful play of the “eagles” in duels with representatives of the top six. However, Roy Hodgson’s team occasionally loves to surprise the football community. Accordingly, here you can be careful in your forecasts, betting on “total under 3.5” in combination with the victory of the hosts.
Our prediction – Manchester United win + total under 3.5 for 2.05 in BC Winline
