Man Utd v Crystal Palace
Just a couple of selections in the Premier League this week, starting with Manchester United to beat Crystal Palace without conceding.
Palace haven’t scored at Old Trafford in any competition since 2011, and considering how utterly abject they’ve been going forward so far this season under Roy Hodgson, I wouldn’t expect that to change.
United look a lot more solid at the back following the arrival of Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire—with the only concession so far courtesy of a Ruben Neves wondergoal—and while Palace have also conceded just once, United will be far too good for them on Saturday.
This’ll be a comfortable win to nil – just like in five of the last six Old Trafford meetings between these two.

Brighton v Southampton
Brighton are going to be a lot of fun under Graham Potter, and a by-product will be goals at either end.
The Seagulls absolutely battered West Ham during their 1-1 draw last weekend, creating countless chances, but the high line they deployed did leave spaces for counter-attacks – which Javier Hernandez duly exploited.
However, Southampton did hold their own against Liverpool on Saturday (a massive improvement from that horror performance at Turf Moor), and with goals in their last four visits to the Amex, it’s clearly not a ground they’ve struggled at in the past.
Albion already look light-years ahead of where they were last season, and I’m backing both teams to score in their clash with the Saints.
