Crystal Palace vs Man Utd: Predictions, betting tips and best odds

Crystal Palace take on a resurgent Manchester United under the lights at Selhurst Park.

Patrick Vieira’s side have suffered a sharp dip in form in recent weeks.

The Eagles sit comfortably in 12th place in the Premier League, though they are a mere seven points from the bottom three having lost four of the last five league games.

Meanwhile, United travel to south London fresh from their 2-1 victory against bitter rivals Manchester City.


Erik ten Hag’s side are looking to win their 10th consecutive game in all competitions, and are firm favourites to dismantle Palace on their own patch.

Bet365 offer a 7/2 for a Palace win, while the visitors are offered at a healthy-looking 4/5 with a draw at 11/4.

Here are some more betting odds for the crucial Premier League tie.

Marcus Rashford to score (again)


There are few attackers in European football in better form than the 25-year-old England star.

United’s star man has netted in each of his side’s last eight matches and is offered at 11/2 to break the deadlock at Selhurst Park.

Bruno Fernandes and Antony are also offered at 13/2 to open the scoring while Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha, who is his side’s top scorer this season, is listed at 8/1 to net first.

It would be unwise to discount Zaha, who spent an unhappy season-and-a-half under David Moyes almost a decade ago.


He has since netted three in 12 against United. Having made a career of proving people wrong, it would not be a surprise to see Zaha open the scoring, having already claimed a respectable six in 17 from the flank this term.


United to get a clean sheet

Beyond Zaha, Palace can’t score at the moment. In fact it’s been their problem all season, having totalled just 17 goals in 18 Premier League games.


Meanwhile, United’s defensive record has improved massively amid the club’s resurgence in recent months. Ten Hag’s side have recorded six clean sheets in their last 10 games and conceded three in their last seven.

United are priced at 11/8 to keep a clean sheet, which looks like an attractive proposition. Meanwhile, the visitors can be backed at 2/1 to keep United out and claim the win.

Top tip

Bet365 are offering a tempting 9/2 for a United win, Rashford to score anytime and there to be over two goals in the game.


Meanwhile, a not-too-bold prediction would be for attacking midfielder Eberechi Eze and talisman Zaha to get over 0.5 shots in the match, and for both teams to score.

With odds of 11/2 this bet could come to pass considering Crystal Palace are at home and will have to somewhat take the game to United, with pressure incrementally mounting on Vieira.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
