Manchester United are set to face their next Premier League rivals, Crystal Palace, on Wednesday night.

The Red Devils are currently sitting in 2nd place in the league table, following their goalless draw with Chelsea last weekend. Meanwhile, Roy Hodgson’s side are 13th on the list.

Ahead of the match, pundit Michael Owen has given his prediction. He has backed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team to secure a 1 – 0 win over the rivals.

“Sunday’s goal-less draw at Stamford Bridge means that it’s now 20 games unbeaten on the road for Manchester United. They couldn’t get their usual counter-attacking game flowing in that match, but that was down to Chelsea’s tactics more than anything else,” he said.

“I think that could be slightly different here. On home soil, Palace are likely to play on the front foot. If that happens, I think United will once again get their reward on the counter. With that in mind, I reckon the away side will take the points, albeit by a narrow margin.”
