Manchester United were held to a draw at Crystal Palace courtesy of a late equaliser last month and will be seeking revenge in Saturday’s reverse Premier League fixture.

United are flying at the moment with Erik ten Hag doing a fine job to put the Old Trafford outfit firmly in the top-four mix and potentially even in contention for the title.

After losing just one of their last seven in the league, United sit fourth in the standings and they’ve made Old Trafford a fortress, avoiding defeat in their last eight outings and winning each of their last five outings.

Palace have only managed to record one win in their last nine across all competitions, beating Bournemouth in the Premier League, and they subsequently sit 12th.

They’ve only managed to pick up two wins from nine engagements on the road in 2022-23 and improving on that record at the  home of the Red Devils looks unlikely.

Man Utd vs Crystal Palace Betting Tips

  • Manchester United -1 handicap @ 11/10
  • Marcus Rashford to score anytime and Manchester United over 1.5 team goals @ 11/8

Team news

Marcus Rashford featured from the bench in the Carabao Cup semi-final second-leg victory over Nottingham Forest on Wednesday and should return to the starting XI for the hosts.

That means Alejandro Garnacho is likely to lose his starting berth, with Antony expected to retain his spot on the other flank.

Christian Eriksen is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines after sustaining an ankle injury in the FA Cup win over Reading, while Scott McTominay, Diogo Dalot and Donny van de Beek are also in the treatment room, but Jadon Sancho could earn his first minutes in the league since October.

Eagles boss Patrick Vieira remains without centre-back Joachim Anderson as the Danish defender continues his recovery from a calf injury.

Full-back Nathan Ferguson and midfielder James McArthur are yet to feature this season and won’t be involved this weekend.

Latest Man Utd vs Crystal Palace Betfred Odds

Manchester United -1 handicap @ 11/10

The feel-good factor appears to be back at Old Trafford with United playing some eye-catching and exciting football under Ten Hag.

No side has picked up more than United’s 15 points over the last five games when hosting in the league.

Much has been made of their attacking antics, with 25 goals scored in their last nine home games across all competitions.

They have scored at least two goals in each of those nine fixtures and Palace could be set for a testing afternoon, meaning there’s value in backing the Red Devils with a -1 handicap, having landed in eight of their last nine at Old Trafford.

Marcus Rashford to score anytime and Manchester United over 1.5 team goals @ 11/8

Marcus Rashford has been integral to United’s improvement and he is fancied to score anytime as the first leg of our #PickYourPunt.

The 25-year-old should be raring to go after making just a cameo appearance against Forest on Wednesday.

He is United’s leading marksman with 18 goals across all competitions this term and has registered 10 times in his last 12 games.

Our second selection requires United to score over 1.5 goals and they have achieved that tally in six of their last nine at home, including when beating Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester City.
