Man Utd vs Crystal Palace predictions: United to edge Eagles in rematch
- Manchester United have won 29 of their last 34 home matches in all competitions
- Six of Crystal Palace's last 10 league defeats were by a 1-0 scoreline
- Recommended bet: Manchester United to win 1-0
Erik ten Hag enjoyed success in the domestic cup competitions in his first season at Manchester United, winning the EFL Cup and reaching the final of the FA Cup.
After a tough start to United's Premier League and Champions League campaigns, Tuesday's 3-0 EFL Cup third-round win over Crystal Palace eased the pressure a little on Ten Hag, who will be hoping to repeat the trick when Palace return to Old Trafford in the league.
The Eagles are just one point behind the Red Devils after six games of the season and their only defeats were a 1-0 home loss to Arsenal and a 3-1 reverse at Aston Villa, where they led until the 87th minute.
Manchester United are missing injured full-backs Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia while wingers Jadon Sancho and Antony will not be involved.
Mason Mount, Harry Maguire, Lisandro Martinez and Sergio Reguilon face fitness tests.
Crystal Palace striker Odsonne Edouard (thigh) has joined Michael Olise, Matheus Franca, Jefferson Lerma, James Tomkins and Nathan Ferguson on the sidelines.
Jean-Philippe Mateta should lead the line instead of Edouard but Naouirou Ahamada (ankle) is a major doubt.
Manchester United have won 29 of their last 34 home matches in all competitions.
The Red Devils have kept seven clean sheets in their last 11 Premier League games at Old Trafford.
United have conceded at least twice in five of their last seven matches in all competitions.
Six of Crystal Palace's last 10 league defeats were by a 1-0 scoreline.
The Eagles have won only five of their last 24 away league games.
Palace are missing the injured Odsonne Edouard, who has scored four of their six league goals this season.
After conceding 10 goals in consecutive defeats to Arsenal, Brighton and Bayern Munich, Manchester United have steadied the ship with a 1-0 league win at Burnley and Tuesday's 3-0 EFL Cup triumph against Saturday's opponents Palace.
They face an Eagles side missing key striker Edouard, who has opened the scoring in three of their last four away league fixtures, so another win to nil looks likely for the hosts.
United have an outstanding home record under Ten Hag and, despite their defensive injuries, they should hold off the visitors again.
Michael Olise, Palace's main creative force last season, has suffered a setback in his recovery from a thigh injury and summer signing Matheus Franca is also sidelined so the Eagles could struggle in the final third.
Roy Hodgson's side have scored only six goals in six league games, three of them in a home win over struggling Wolves, and a 1-0 United victory appeals in the Correct Score market.
