The Crystal Palace vs. Manchester United match will be played on Monday, March 5, at the Selhurst Park, London. Crystal Palace is currently 18th on the table with 27 points, while Manchester United is currently 3rd on the table with 59 points. Since this is the last match of Premier League round 29, both teams have a game in hand.


  • Crystal Palace is in a bad series of five games without a victory in the league. They haven't score more than one goal in seven consecutive games.
  • Manchester United was defeated only twice in their last 14 games in all competitions. They defeated Chelsea in the derby match last week, by 2:1.


In their previous ten meetings, Manchester United recorded eight victories, while two games ended in a draw. In seven out of those ten games we saw under 2.5 goals. Crystal Palace haven't defeated Manchester United in the 21st century.


After Roy Hodgson took over the club, Crystal Palace enjoyed a stint of solid results and they found themselves in the middle of the table. However, only two points in their last five games pushed them back into the relegation zone. Additional problem for Hodgson is insane number of injured players - Crystal Palace currently has more than 10 sidelined players, which is the most in the league! After Manchester United, Crystal Palace will face Chelsea and Liverpool in the next three weeks and there is a great chance they will be relegated in the end of the season.

The victory against Chelsea was very important for Manchester United. They will continue fighting for the position number two, since Manchester City almost mathematically secured the title. However, they have to think about Champions League too, and the second leg against Sevilla. In the first match in Spain the result was 0:0, so Manchester United will have a slight advantage in the second match.

Everything except an easy victory for Manchester United would be a sensation.
