On Wednesday, Manchester United faced off against Nottingham Forest in the EFL Cup, and they were able to win 2-0. Anthony Martial scored in the 73rd minute while Fred scored in the 76th minute. Manchester United had 75 percent of the possession and six shots on target. Manchester United has suffered a key injury with Christian Eriksen being out long term because of his ankle. Donny van de Beek and Scott McTominay are also dealing with injuries and won’t be able to go in this game. Diogo Dalot is dealing with a hamstring injury, and it’s unclear if he’s going to be able to go in this game.

On the other side of this matchup is Crystal Palace who sits in 12th place in the standings having picked up 24 points. On January 21st Crystal Palace faced off against Newcastle, and that game ended in a 0-0 draw. Crystal Palace had only 39 percent of the possession and one shot on target. Crystal Palace has been dealt a big blow with Wilfried Zaha dealing with a hamstring injury and he’s going to be out at least the next month. James McArthur is dealing with a groin injury and he also isn’t going to be able to go in this game.
Shane’s Free Pick
Crystal Palace not having Wilfried Zaha is such a big blow, and that is going to really hurt the goal scoring of Crystal Palace. I do expect Crystal Palace is going to take a defensive shape also, and that is going to lead to this game lower scoring. Look for a 1-0 or 2-0 type of game and that is going to lead to this game staying under the total. Back the under to cash.
