Our prediction: Man Utd v Crystal Palace

Like Antonio Conte at Tottenham, don't expect Rangnick to suddenly have United playing like treble winners from the word go.

However, one major positive is that he is inheriting a situation that could certainly be worse. Michael Carrick produced an excellent spell as caretaker boss as he oversaw big results against big teams that kept United in touching distance of the top four.

Palace boast plenty of weapons who can dish out damage but are prone to individual errors and late collapses that they simply need to iron out immediately.

Our prediction: Man Utd 2-1 Crystal Palace (8/1 at bet365)
