Manchester Utd v Crystal Palace
15:00 - 21/5/2017 - Old Trafford, Manchester
Man Utd have Sergio Romero to thank after he saved a penalty to earn his side a goalless draw at Southampton. It’s the fifth game United have gone without a win and Mourinho has never gone six Premier League games without a victory in his career. That could be under threat here with Jose stating that he’s going to play more youngsters for this fixture with their Europa League final with Ajax only three days after.
Crystal Palace thumped Hull 4-0 at home last time out, putting an end to a losing run of three games without scoring. They were handed a thrashing of their own in their latest road game at Man City but they were without Dann and Tomkins for that one and both should return here. Previously the Eagles had won four of six, which included excellent victories at Liverpool and champions Chelsea.
It’s not often you’ll find United at 2.3 on home soil to Palace, but Mourinho has made it clear that he’s going to play a second-string side. For this reason, we must take them on, but given 10 of their last 15 at Old Trafford have finished all-square we’ll keep the draw onside.
