Manchester United will lock their horns against Crystal Palace in the Premier League. Manchester United are currently situated in third position in the League Table of Premier League behind second placed Liverpool who have played one extra match than United. Manchester United will be desperate to get a win against Crystal Palace to get back to the second position in the League Table.
Manchester United have been destroying their opposition on the pitch in the current campaign and it seems that the Eagles might suffer a similar fate as well. Romelu Lukaku has been in excellent goal scoring form and it will be really tough for the Londoners to stop him and get something out of the game.
Jose Mourinho also will expect nothing less than a win and we can surely expect quite a few goals in the game, thus the prediction.
It will only take a brilliant performance by Palace or a miracle for them to take back something from the game, considering the fact that it is against United, a club in which the kings of England, live up to their reputation, generally.
The match between Manchester United and Sevilla had ended in a 0-0 draw. The match could easily produce a galore of Goals but De Gea was brilliant under the bar for United and had saved their day. They had faced Sevilla in the round of 16 clash in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday. United would be determined to win the match to qualify for the next round in the biggest event of Europe.
By analysing the performance of Manchester United this season so far we find that the Red Devils are lacking a star player upfront who can change the course of the match from anywhere any day. So the main focus of the Red Devils will be now on signing a star player in the next summer transfer window. But Jose Mourinho will surely try to win the match against Sevilla to qualify for the next round.
