Manchester United welcome Crystal Palace at Old Trafford in a crunch Premier League clash today
The Reds will be without injured Paul Pogba and possibly without Marouane Fellaini
Manchester United could fall victim to Crystal Palace in today’s Premier League clash at Old Trafford, Manchester.
Jose Mourinho’s men are in red-hot form, humbling Russian outfit CSKA Moscow 4-1 away from home in the Champions League. They are also unbeaten this season, Romelu Lukaku scoring 10 goals in nine games for them.
However, they could lose at home to Crystal Palace today as a result of the reforms Crystal palace are trying to implement. They sacked Coach De Boer at the start of the season and appointed former England Coach Roy Hodgson, making history as the first ever club in Premier League history to lose six games in a row.
However, Crystal Palace is a strong side, judging by the players at the club’s disposal. If a turnaround is to begin, it has to begin now, or they risk falling short of enough points to survive relegation.
They have in this situation before, failing to secure even a point in a game but have come back from it. Last season, they needed the intervention of veteran manager Sam Allardyce to survive the drop.
Manchester United will be without Paul Pogba who is recovering from a hamstring injury acquired from the opening fixture of the Champions League against FC Basel.
Marouane Fellaini could also fail to feature, after limping off when the side played Southampton at the St. Mary’s Stadium.
They will be relying on Lukaku, Martial and Mkhitaryan to conjure up something for them to continue their unbeaten run this season.
