United can continue their good form with a win at Selhurst Park on Wednesday night.
Crystal Palace v Man Utd – Wednesday 20:00, BT Sport 1
Crystal Palace salvaged a draw against Hull on Saturday with a late equalizer, but the relief of avoiding defeat (particularly to a side below them) will have been tempered by the knowledge that they should have won the game. Alan Pardew can point to Robert Snodgrass’ soaring flight as well as a spot kick that wasn’t given for a foul on Christian Benteke with some justification, but overall he will have been pleased nonetheless with four points from their last two games after losing the previous six on the bounce.
Man Utd recorded an important victory over Spurs above them to narrow the gap between the sides to just three points. Both Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Paul Pogba were heavily involved, and Jose Mourinho can be encouraged with performances in recent weeks even if they’ve drawn six of their last nine. In recent games against Arsenal, West Ham and Everton, Jose’s side have been the better team, yet failed to take their chances and conceded late equalizers against Arsenal and Everton.
Palace have lost the first-half in eight of their last 10 matches, as well as in five of their six encounters with the Red Devils since their promotion in 2013/14, whilst Man Utd have won 16 of their last 18 where they led at the break. With their improving form and summer signings now settling into the side, we think the best value is to be found in the half-time/full-time market where we’re backing Man Utd/Man Utd.100% Bonus Up to £200
