After a dull 0-0 draw against Chelsea, Manchester United face Crystal Palace on Wednesday night hoping to return to winning ways. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sounded happy with the Chelsea result in the post match press conference but will be desperate for his team to grab all 3 points at Selhurst Park. With The FA having confirmed that both Solskjaer himself and Luke Shaw won’t be facing any charges for their post match comments, it is safe to expect United start with the same team as they did against Chelsea.
Man United expected starting lineup against Crystal Palace
Against Chelsea, although the United defenders played with a high line, the team overall was quite defensive and compact. This meant that although they were comfortable in dealing with Chelsea’s attacks, United themselves couldn’t create much of note. Against Palace, United will be expected to take more risks by committing more men forward. Scott McTominay has had an excellent season so far scoring valuable goals and his forward runs provide United with attacking thrusts which they were missing against Chelsea. For bettors and who are looking for the best odds on Manchester United winning against Crystal palace, available on Wincomparator bookies offers reviews of all the best bookmaker sign up offers.
Although Palace are not in great form, United must be guarded against their counters. Roy Hodgson will set up his team in a low block and attempt to hit United on the break. United have broken down the low block must better this season than last year but still struggle against it at times. Bruno Fernandes again will be key as his ability to find space and pick out the right pass makes him deadly against the low block.
