Crystal Palace vs Manchester United 5 March 2018: EPL Soccer Preview and Predictions

USA TODAY Sports

Crystal Palace are in action this week as the South London side battle to avoid relegation. This weekend they will play the last game of the round against Manchester United at home against at Selhurst Park. Both sides will be desperate to do well and as a result, we should be able to witness a good game.

Manchester United are a top side and they will know that they need to keep winning if they wish to remain 2nd on the ladder behind Manchester City. This is a game which Mourinho and his players will hope to win easily since they are the better team on paper and Crystal Palace are in bad form. That being said, the Red Devils will be away from home and I expect Crystal Palace to fight hard.

As far as Crystal Palace are concerned, they need to start getting points since all the teams around them are winning. The Eagles are now in the bottom three and if they don’t get a result from this game, they will stay there. It is going to be hard for Crystal Palace to get a result since Manchester United are simply too strong.

Taking everything into consideration, I think that Manchester United should win this game but unfortunately, we are not getting a good enough price to make this wager. I think that the best bet for this game in the under 2.5 goals. Crystal Palace will fight hard and they will not give anything away easily. I think that Manchester United will win 1-0 or 2-0 meaning that the under 2.5 goals should get home. This wager is paying well so a medium sized bet is suggested.

 

Pick:
Under 2.5 goals
