Manchester United V Crystal Palace: Preview and Possible XI

  • Premier League: Matchweek 13
  • Venue: Old Trafford
  • Date: Saturday, 24 November
  • Kick-off time: 3PM

Manchester United will try to cut a seven-point gap to the top four when they host Crystal Palace at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday. United are eighth, having lost four times already this season. Palace are also desperate for points as Roy Hodgson’s squad is only above the bottom three on goal difference.


United have played 18 PL matches against Crystal Palace without ever losing, the highest number in the competition for a team who have never been defeated by an opponent.

Juan Mata, who has scored in two of his three Premier League home matches for United against Palace, has produced 49 goals and 49 assists in the competition.

Romelu Lukaku has scored in six of his last eight Premier League appearances against Palace, including both for Man Utd last season.

Jose Mourinho has only lost one of his 51 Premier League home matches kicking off at 3 pm on a Saturday, but that defeat came against Palace when he was Chelsea manager in August 2015.
