Why you should back Manchester United

United have lost 10 of 61 meetings with Crystal Palace (39-12-10), and their confidence is at its peak. The comeback against City, sparked by a goal by Bruno Fernandes and the winner from Marcus Rashford, was a huge step. United held the ball for just 29% of Saturday’s match, but City managed only one shot on target. Rashford has 16 goals in 26 total matches this season, while Fernandes can score them or set them up. He has three league goals and three assists and is third in the league in shot-creating actions (82) and goal-creating actions (12).

Christian Eriksen (six assists) is a point guard, and fellow midfielder Casemiro is seventh in the EPL with 46 tackles and is a constant thorn in the side of opponents. United have scored 12 more goals than Crystal Palace (29-17) and conceded five fewer (21-26).

Why you should back Crystal Palace

The Eagles are in a rut, but they have the attacking talent to do damage, and they have given Man United trouble recently. Their past eight matchups are even at 3-2-3, and Palace won the most recent meeting 1-0 at Selhurst Park. Wilfried Zaha scored in that match, and he has six goals and two assists after scoring double-digit goals three of the past four seasons.

Palace put half of their 10 shots on target Sunday, forcing Chelsea’s Kepa Arrizabalaga to make several tough saves. They also played their typically rough style, being called for 17 fouls and receiving five yellow cards. They have the second-most fouls (220) in the Premier League but also have drawn more fouls (237) than any other team. They will count on the energy of the Selhurst Park crowd and try to frustrate the Red Devils. Of the 21 goals United have conceded this season, 16 have come on the road.
