People were getting excited after Manchester United beat Chelsea on the opening weekend but you could see they are going to have problems over the course of the season. But I will go for a routine win at Old Trafford.
Manchester United are unbeaten in 22 league meetings since a 3-0 defeat at Selhurst Park in May 1991 (W18, D4).
Crystal Palace are winless against United in all 20 Premier League meetings – the most any team has faced another in the division without ever earning a victory.
The Eagles last won a league game at Old Trafford in December 1989 courtesy of a brace from Mark Bright in a 2-1 victory. They’ve failed to score in 11 of their subsequent 12 away league games at United, and earned a solitary point.
United have only won three of their last 14 matches in all competitions, as well as keeping a solitary clean sheet in 17 games.
They have been beaten in two of their past four Premier League home fixtures, as many as they lost in their previous 27 at Old Trafford.
A second successive home clean sheet would equal United’s league tally at Old Trafford for the whole of last season.
Paul Pogba has missed four Premier League penalties since the start of last season, more than any other player.
Anthony Martial could become the fourth player to score in each of United’s opening three matches of a Premier League season, emulating Dwight Yorke in 1999, Ruud van Nistelrooy in 2005 and Wayne Rooney in 2011.
