Crystal Palace stunned Manchester United in a 1-0 road victory in September

Crystal Palace host Manchester United in the last game of Matchday No 36 on Monday evening at Selhurst Park. The hosts have enjoyed the best month of the season, winning three and drawing one of four league matches in April. Can they translate this form into May?

Crystal Palace scored nine goals in the last three home matches in the league. Manchester United conceded two or more goals in all but one of their previous six outings across competitions. Jean-Philippe Mateta notched four goals in the previous three appearances for the Eagles.

Crystal Palace terminated their three-win streak with a 1-1 draw at Fulham last Saturday. They earned a point only thanks to a late equalizer from Jeffrey Schlupp. We should say that Palace were without their best player Eberechi Eze at Craven Cottage. The inspiring attacking midfielder should return to starting XI for this tie with United, though.

The visitors also go into this unbeaten in five straight matches across competitions. Nevertheless, Manchester United disappointed their fans with a dismal showing in a 1-1 stalemate to Burnley last weekend at Old Trafford.

Recent Meetings
Crystal Palace stunned Manchester United in a 1-0 road victory in September last year at Old Trafford. The Red Devils have 13 wins, 7 draws, and only 4 defeats in the previous 24 visits to Selhurst Park.

We saw three or more goals only three times in the previous eight head-to-head encounters.

Crystal Palace vs Manchester United Prediction
Manchester United are undefeated in five subsequent games across competitions but they just can’t defend properly these days. The Red Devils shipped at least two goals in five of the last six affairs in all competitions.

The lone exception came last Saturday in a 1-1 draw to Burnley. It was the match in which Clarets missed numerous big chances in front of Onana’s goal.

Palace have been exquisite in the final third in recent weeks. They put seven goals past West Ham and Newcastle in the previous two home matches. We should be in for goals galore on Monday night in London. The Over 3.5 goals pick is the way to go at the 2.30 odds.
