Football News

Manchester United travel to Selhurst Park on Saturday in hope that their mini break in Dubai can revitalise their season. 

The Red Devils have failed to win their last three games in the Premier League, which has left the Premier League champions languishing in seventh spot with 12 games to go.

Crystal Palace on the other hand have moved up the Premier League table thanks to their recent rejuvenation under Tony Pulis.

The Eagles are currently 15th in the Premier League and go back into tomorrow's game on the back of a 3-1 win against fellow relegation candidates West Brom as their fixture against Everton was called off due to severe weather conditions.

Pulis is close to having a complete squad to pick from as Jerome Thomas is the only first-team player who is currently nursing an injury.

Manchester United boss David Moyes on the other hand could be without Jonny Evans, Nani and Danny Welbeck for their trip to south London. 

Moyes is expected to hand Adnan Januzaj a start after deciding to start Ashley Young ahead of the Manchester United starlet in recent weeks. 

Palace striker Glenn Murray is again expected to take his place on the Eagles' substitutes bench after returning to first-team action against West Brom after a lengthy spell on the sidelines with a knee injury. 

Prediction: Crystal Palace 1-2 Manchester United - The Premier League champions will defeat Crystal Palace by a solitary goal.
