Manchester United vs Crystal Palace Tips, Predictions & Free Bets

Manchester United will welcome a struggling Crystal Palace to Old Trafford in the English Premier League this weekend.

Roy Hodgson's Palace side are without a win this campaign and Old Trafford will be the last place they want to go. United are clear favourites for the game at 1.33 with bet365, but there is value in the win to nil market.

Manchester United Form & Team News 

Manchester United have made a solid start to their Premier League campaign. Ole Gunnar Solsjaker's men defeated Chelsea 4-0 on the opening day and then drew 1-1 with Wolves away from home last week. 

Marcus Rashford grabbed a brace for the Red Devils on the opening day, with Anthony Martial and Daniel James both getting on the scoresheet as well. Martial then grabbed his second of the season at Molineux on Monday night. 

Martial has led the line for Ole's men in the last two games. Solsjaker handed a debut to Daniel James at Wolves after he scored on his debut and he may keep him in the team for the match against Palace. 

Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof have made a nice duo at centre-back and the two will start together once again at Old Trafford this weekend. Paul Pogba will also be out to redeem himself after missing a penalty against Wolves. 

United are clear favourites to win the game. They are currently priced at 1.33 to pick up the win with bet365, which doesn't present a great deal of value.

Crystal Palace Form & Team News 

Crystal Palace have had a tough start to their new season. They have yet to pick up a win, having drawn 0-0 against Everton on the opening day before losing 1-0 away at Sheffield United last week. 

Wilfried Zaha will start for Palace on Saturday. The winger has been distracted by a summer of transfer speculation and has yet to make a real impact for the club. He will be behind former Liverpool striker Christian Benteke. 

The Eagles have gotten off to a slow start and that is reflected in their odds. They are currently priced at 9.00 to pick up the victory. A draw is priced at 5.25, but given Palace's inability to find the net, this doesn't seem very likely. 

Manchester United vs Crystal Palace Analysis - Easy Win Predicted for United 

Manchester United will want to make teams scared to come to Old Trafford again this season and after a 4-0 thrashing of Chelsea on the opening day, should be able to see off Palace with ease. 

Roy Hodgson's men have looked blunt so far this season. The Eagles played an attractive brand of football at the end of the last campaign but have offered little upfront so far this season. A summer of change and transfer speculation has clearly affected them.

Manchester United vs Crystal Palace Tips - Manchester United Win to Nil 

Crystal Palace have struggled to create chances against Everton and Sheffield United, which means they will really struggle at Old Trafford. 

United kept a clean sheet against Chelsea in their opening home game and their new defence looks solid. A win to nil is great value at 2.10. 

Anthony Martial has also gotten himself among the goals this season and is great value to do so again at 2.20 in the anytime goalscorer market and 5.00 in the first goalscorer market.
