Insight and Analysis: Manchester United vs Crystal Palace Premier League 2021 Match Prediction.

Manchester United vs Crystal Palace Premier League 2021 Match Preview, Injuries/Suspension, Match Facts, Team News, Prediction and Where to Watch.

The first live viewing of incoming Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick’s new club would have been fraught with emotions. As a result of the contentious VAR decisions, a back-and-forth game ensued, culminating in a thrilling 3-2 win over Arsenal in midweek.

The German was hawk-eye in his analysis, taking copious notes throughout, as he begins a process that United supporters hope can return them to the top of the English game.

Goals will not be on the new manager’s mind because the ‘Red Devils’ have goal scorers all over the field.

Their difficulties, though, are in defense.

United has gone 12 games without a clean sheet at home in the Premier League (PL).

And, in the last two seasons, opponents Crystal Palace have left Old Trafford with the full complement of points. The hosts will have to deal with their flaws in the back.

This Premier League season, Palace has already visited Manchester and won, defeating Manchester City 2-0 at the Etihad.

The ‘Eagles’ wings have since been cut, as they have gone winless in their last three (D1, L2), after losing only one of their previous 11 Premier League games (W3, D7).

The visitors have performed admirably in recent meetings with United, with only two defeats in their last six Premier League head-to-head meetings (W2, D2). However, Palace manager Patrick Viera will have to work on his team’s ability to close out tight games, since the Eagles have already lost five points this season due to goals conceded in stoppage time.

Players to Watch

Cristiano Ronaldo will be full of confidence after scoring his 800th and 801st career goals against Arsenal, while Wilfried Zaha scored twice in this match last season and has had all of his Premier League goals this season serve as match openers.

Hot Stats

United is the only Premier League team that has yet to score in the first 15 minutes of the season.With 71% of its goals coming in the second half.

Team News

Manchester United

After been given a work visa in midweek.Ralf Rangnick will take charge of his first game as Manchester United interim manager this weekend.

Rangnick is likely to make some changes now that he will have more time to deal with individuals who weren’t prominently involve on Thursday night.

Cristiano Ronaldo was unable to finish the game.But it appeared to be more of a precaution than a serious injury. In any case, it wouldn’t surprise me if he wasn’t ready to begin here.

For players like Jesse Lingard, Anthony Martial, and Donny van de Beek, this may be fantastic news.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Luke Shaw, and Nemanja Matic were all injured against Arsenal and are doubts for this match.

Crystal Palace

Patrick Vieira is hoping
to get Joachim Andersen back for the trip to Old Trafford on Sunday.

Joel Ward will miss the weekend after picking up his fifth booking of the season against Leeds on midweek.

If Andersen is fit enough to start at centre-back, James Tomkins may be moved to right-back to cover for Ward.

Jordan Ayew didn’t have much of an impact against Leeds, but he looked promising. He’ll be hoping to keep his spot in the side.

Christian Benteke will almost certainly return to the starting lineup, displacing Odsonne Edouard.

Luka Milivojevic will try to restore his starting berth in midfield after being benched in midweek for Jeffrey Schlupp.

Match Facts

In all competitions, Manchester United has won 19 of their last 21 games against Crystal Palace.

Man United has conceded at least two goals in each of their last three home games (Premier League).


On Thursday, Manchester United defeated Arsenal 3-2 in Michael Carrick’s final game as caretaker manager.

With United three points behind of the top four and a solid run of Premier League fixtures ahead of them. Ralf Rangnick will take over as interim manager.

Crystal Palace were left to rue Christian Benteke’s lost opportunity against Leeds in midweek.As they were defeated 1-0 by a late penalty.

For the first time this season, the Eagles have lost back-to-back games.

United fans will be hoping for a new manager bounce in Rangnick’s first game in command.

But miracles are unlikely considering the fact that he has only had two days to work with his new squad.

Any win will suffice, but Palace haven’t maintained a clean sheet in their last 15 visits to Old Trafford.So they should at least score.
