Manchester United vs Crystal Palace 21 May 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

Crystal Palace secured safety last week after a big win at home against Hull City in a game that saw the Tigers get relegated. This weekend, Crystal Palace end their season away from home as they take on Manchester United at Old Trafford. A win will be great for either side but neither team will really have a lot to play for so it.

Manchester United have the Europa League final to worry about and with their squad depth and injuries at the moment, it is more than likely that Jose Mourinho will play a second rate team in this game. A win will not mean much to this side but they are a better team and I am sure that in the back of their minds they will want to win this game and give the Old Trafford fans something to cheer about.

Crystal Palace had a great run this season beating Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool and a win here will mean that they have beaten the historic big 4 teams. This game will be hard for them but they have nothing to lose and with a side like Palace and their attacking power, this means it could be dangerous.

I think that the result is very unpredictable here so avoiding this bet is the best option by far. The better option is to bet on both teams to score since that makes sense and also the over 2.5 goals. Both teams have goals in them and it is more than likely that Palace will score and you would also expect United to score at home. With two teams scoring, this also makes the over 2.5 goals way too likely to not bet on.
