Manchester United is going to host Crystal Palace in the Premier League 2nd round on Saturday afternoon. The hosts are looking forward to kicking-off the campaign with a victory, while the away side will be searching for at least a point from this match.
Match Preview & Team News
Once again, the home side is going to challenge for the Premier League title, the first one after Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement. The Red Devils were not too successful in the title hunt in previous seasons, and this time, they want to be as much competition as possible. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer managed to lift the team after a disappointing first half of the latest campaign and launch it to the 3rd spot. Man Utd hasn’t been too active on the transfer market, but they brought Donny van de Beek, who should be an impactful signing for the hosts. The home side needs to keep winning as many points as possible at Old Trafford since, in the previous season, they spilled too many of them on draws.
Crystal Palace managed to win in the season-opener against Southampton at the home ground. Although they didn’t have much of the game, Wilfried Zaha’s winner in the first 15 minutes of the clash secured the first three points for the Palace. The away side had a decent campaign last season, but they were in a terrible form after the break caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. Roy Hodgson’s side had a lot of troubles finding the oppositions’ back of the net as they were the second most inefficient team in the competition. They are in a bad streak when playing away from home since the Palace lost four times in a row. We are eager to see if they can cause an upset and remain undefeated at Old Trafford.
