EPL: CPFC vs United

Manchester United will continue their efforts to pursue a top 4 finish as they travel to the capital to encounter Crystal Palace on Thursday. Meanwhile, Palace have endured a series of recent bleak results, but the Eagles have run out of goals in the last 3 games of the season.

While Palace unfortunately left their London derby with Chelsea with nothing to show for their brave performance when losing 2-3, the weekend clash with Aston Villa was a complete story. another for south London club. Villa's hope of survival received a huge boost when a brace from Trezeguet made Roy Hodgson and his students easily lose in the West Midlands, and Palace is now one of the two teams that have lost the last 5 matches with Norwich. . The Eagles have relegated safely and have now dropped to 14th place and the Eagles still face Wolverhampton Wanderers and Tottenham Hotspur before the 2019-20 campaign ends. Palace will not have Christian Benteke after a red card in the defeat to Villa, meaning that Jordan Ayew will likely be transferred to a center-half role with Andros Townsend on the right wing for the Eagles. 

Solskjaer could be in a difficult position when he has to choose a left-back when Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams both suffered injuries in the last draw with Southampton. Shaw's injury involved an ankle while Williams suffered an unpleasant cut above the eye, so Solskjaer may have to have Diogo Dalot kick his left foot. Daniel James is an option on the right wing if Mason Greenwood is resting, and there may be some changes in midfield with Fred and Scott McTominay vying for midfield positions. The Reds rocked Stuart Armstrong's opener before Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial turned the tables, but Michael Obafemi equalized late for Saints to end United's winning streak.
