Manchester United face familiar foes Crystal Palace this weekend as Patrick Vieira’s side head to Old Trafford in Premier League action.
As part of calendar disruption caused by the World Cup in November and December last year, as well as the death of Queen Elizabeth II, United take on the Eagles for the second time since the start of 2023. In the reverse fixture, Michael Olise’s superb free-kick secured a late 1-1 draw at Selhurst Park in January.
That result dented United’s strong start to 2023, but Erik ten Hag’s charges have since maintained good form, booking their place in the Carabao Cup final against Newcastle later this month by beating Nottingham Forest 5-0 on aggregate.
Here’s all the key information on the match including kickoff time, live streaming and TV channels, lineups and betting odds.

Man United vs Crystal Palace lineups
Ten Hag has some injury problems in midfield, with Danish star Christian Eriksen ruled out until May and Scott McTominay likely out for another week or so, and the Dutch coach is expected to rotate his side again after resting some players for the 2-0 Carabao Cup semifinal second-leg win over Nottingham Forest.
New loan signing Marcel Sabitzer will hope to be in the matchday squad for the first time.
Man United starting XI (4-2-3-1): De Gea (GK) — Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Martinez, Shaw — Casemiro, Fred — Antony, Fernandes, Rashford — Martial
Man United subs: Heaton (GK), Lindelof, Maguire, Sabitzer, Malacia, Garnacho, Weghorst, Pellestri, Sancho
Palace talisman Wilfried Zaha has been ruled out for Vieira’s visitors with key defender Joachim Anderson also sidelined for another week.
Arsenal loanee Albert Sambi Lokonga could be in line for his Palace debut, along with new arrival Naouirou Ahamada, in what could be a new-look midfield. Jeffrey Schlupp would therefore be free to move further forward and replace Zaha.
Crystal Palace starting XI (4-2-3-1): Guaita (GK) — Ward, Richards, Guehi, Mitchell — Doucoure, Lokonga — Ayew, Eze, Schlupp — Edouard
Crystal Palace subs: Johnstone (GK), Riedewald, Clyne, Ozoh, Ahamada, Milivojevic, Hughes, Olise, Mateta
Man United vs Crystal Palace prediction, odds
United have endured a mixed record against Palace in recent seasons, with the Eagles developing into a ‘bogey’ team for the Red Devils, with two wins from their past three Premier League visits to Old Trafford.
Vieira has steadied the ship slightly in recent weeks with draws against Ten Hag’s side and Newcastle United, and up against a team who played in midweek, they will be confident of a solid result in Manchester.
Prediction: A 1-1 draw
|Man United win||-250||4/11||1.40||-291|
|Crystal Palace win||+675||15/2||8.25||+682|
|Over/Under 2.5 goals||-130 / -105||4/5 / 10/11||1.85 – 1.95||-125 / -106|
|Both teams to score Y/N||+105 / -150||11/10 / 4/6||2.05 – 1.70||+102 / – 161|
