Crystal Palace earned one of the shock wins of the season at the start of this Premier League campaign when they beat Manchester United 3-1 at Old Trafford in September.


Back then it looked as though the Red Devils were in crisis but a stellar run over the autumn and winter has catapulted Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men into the top four.

Palace now welcome United to Selhurst Park in much lower spirits to when these sides last met. Just one win on four Premier League fixtures has dampened their season somewhat – although Roy Hodgson will be happy they are all-but safe from relegation.

United head into this tie having just drawn their last two outings 0-0. They will hope to swiftly overcome the dour goalless encounter with Chelsea at the weekend with goals here in south London.

And Palace could well get in on the scoring action themselves, although it is unlikely star man Wilfried Zaha will be there to feature against his former club. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Crystal Palace v Man Utd on TV and online.

Crystal Palace v Man Utd team news

Crystal Palace: Zaha’s fitness is the big concern for Palace and Hodgson will likely have been planning his tactics for this game without their star forward.

Elsewhere, absentees include Wayne Hennessey, Nathan Ferguson, James McArthur, Connor Wickham, Jeffrey Schlupp, Mamadou Sakho and James Tomkins. There is hope Nathaniel Clyne will be fit to feature.

Man Utd: Paul Pogba, Juan Mata and Phil Jones are the confirmed absentees for United on Wednesday.

However, Solskjaer may be able to welcome back Edinson Cavani from injury, while the boss could throw Anthony Martial into the XI in place of Mason Greenwood.

Our prediction: Crystal Palace v Man Utd

The absence of Zaha hasn’t stopped Palace claiming four points from their last three games but Wednesday night will prove a much tougher task than facing Brighton and Fulham.

Even with injuries themselves, United have the firepower to take command of this tie early on. Expect Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford to get on the scoresheet at some point.

Hodgson will hope to keep things tight and exploit any set-pieces that go Palace’s way. But realistically this should be a comfortable win for the Premier League’s second-placed team.

Our prediction: Crystal Palace 1-3 Man Utd (12/1 at bet365)
