Manchester United are hoping to make it four consecutive wins in all competitions when they host Crystal Palace in the English Premier League on Saturday.
United are in fourth place with 39 points, while Palace’s dismal run of form has seen them drop to 12th place with 24 points.
Both teams squared off in the league on January 18 and Michael Olise’s 91st minute equalizer salvaged a point for Palace in a 1-1 draw.
Man United have excelled on home soil in recent months as they have won each of their last 12 games at Old Trafford across all competitions.
Man United have won only one of their last five matches against Palace in the Premier League and are winless in their last two such matches.
Crystal Palace have won seven points from their last four away games against United in the Premier League ahead of this showdown.
However, Patrick Vieira’s side are not known for their away goal form and have failed to find the back of the net in 6 of their last 9 games away from home.
Many call Palace their bogey team but Man United have scored 5 goals in their last two home games and are confident ahead of the tie.
Palace have failed to win any of their last five Premier League matches but are tipped to cause some problems for Erik Ten Hag’s side.
