Palace to win

Crystal Palace will be looking to continue their progression under Oliver Glasner when Manchester United head to Selhurst Park for Premier League action on Monday.

The Eagles have started to thrive under the Austrian tactician in recent weeks and they head into this contest on a four-match unbeaten streak, winning three and drawing one.

Palace will be eager to keep their impressive run of form going until the end of the campaign and they now host a United side who are in a real battle to finish in a European position.

Team news

Palace are set to be boosted by the returns of Eberechi Eze and Marc Guehi, who could both be named in the starting XI, but Sam Johnstone, Cheick Doucoure, Jefferson Lerma, Rob Holding and Matheus Franca are missing through injury.

United remain without Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Willy Kambwala, Raphael Varane, Lisandro Martinez, Victor Lindelof, Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia for this contest.

Jonny Evans is in contention after returning to training last week, while Scott McTominay is also expected back after a knee issue and Bruno Fernandes should shake off a wrist problem.

Palace have collected 10 points from the last 12 on offer, racking up victories over Liverpool, West Ham and Newcastle before drawing 1-1 at Fulham last time out.

The Eagles have lost just one of Glasner's five home games in charge, that sole defeat a 4-2 loss to Manchester City, while they have netted 13 times during that quintet of fixtures.

United have picked up just one win from their last six attempts in the top flight, drawing four and losing once during that period, and they have slipped two points behind Newcastle in sixth.

The Red Devils have failed to triumph in their last four away assignments in the league and have conceded in each of their last nine road fixtures in the division, letting in 19 goals in total.


United's selection issues at the back mean they will once again have a patched-up defence for this trip to south London and their hopes of a European finish could take a hit on Monday.

The Red Devils have collected just two points from the last 12 on offer away from home and there is a real lack of direction under manager Erik ten Hag, who continues to be linked with a summer exit.

Failing to secure European football for next season would likely spell the end of the Dutchman's time at Old Trafford and Palace can ensure United head back to Manchester with nothing to show for their efforts.

The Eagles are a much better unit under the guidance of Glasner, especially on home soil, and the expected return of Eze brings more creativity to a team who have shown attacking flair since the Austrian took charge.
