Manchester United travel to Crystal Palace knowing that a win would see them jump into second place on the English Premier League table.

Man United are unbeaten in their last 7 games in all competitions and are coming off a morale-boosting 2-1 win against rivals Man City.

The win left them in fourth place with 38 points after conceding just two goals in their recent impressive run of form.

Palace on the other hand suffered a 1-0 defeat to London rivals Chelsea in their last outing, leaving them in 12th with 22 points.

Four of the Eagles’ last five in the top flight have ended in defeat – failing to find the back of the net in all of those losses and only beating Bournemouth in that time.

Man United have not won 10 consecutive games since Alex Ferguson’s time in 2009 and will be confident ahead of this midweek clash.

Palace beat United 1-0 in the last day of last season as Erik Ten Hag watched from the stands but the stage is set differently this time around.

Patrick Vieira’s side have only lost twice in their last six meetings with United and this could potentially set this up to be an explosive encounter.

All 3 points will be very vital for United here as they prepare to travel to the Emirates on Sunday to battle it out against league leaders Arsenal.
