The Red Devils will aim to get a revenge over Palace at Old Trafford after picking up a disappointing draw in the reverse fixture.

Manchester United will host Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Saturday in a crucial English Premier League match. Both teams will be eager to secure a win as they look to continue their push for success this season.

The Red Devils have been in strong form recently, winning their last three games in all competitions following their defeat Arsenal. They will look to continue this run of success, with manager Erik ten Hag expected to field another strong starting lineup. On Wednesday, the Dutchman led his charges to their first cup final in three years, beating Nottingham Forest 5-0 on aggregate to book a date with Newcastle in the Carabao Cup at Wembley.

The dream to secure a Champions League spot for next season is still alive for Manchester United who remain 11 points behind league leaders Arsenal. With a game in hand, the 13-time Premier League winners (39) are three points above fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur (36) and could potentially increase the gap with a win as the Lillywhites face a tough test against Manchester City.

Indeed, the upcoming clash with Palace will be far from a walk in the park if their performance in the first round is anything to go by. A stunning last-gasp free-kick by Michael Olise was able to snatch a vital point for the Eagles at Selhurst Park and they will look to draw inspiration from the performance in the trip to Old Trafford. Nevertheless, they will have to up the ante a notch further this time around with United boasting more firepower in all departments on the field than before.

It's been a topsy-turvy ride for Patrick Viera's side who come into this match without a win in their last five outings across all competitions. Prior to going on a three-game winless run in the Premier League, the Eagles were knocked out of the FA Cup at home to Southampton.

With the stakes higher in both camps, the upcoming clash promises to be an exciting match. Without doubt, United will be the favorites, but Palace will be hoping to cause an upset.
