Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
After surviving Burnley in the Premier League round 6, Manchester United will look to give fans yet another reason to celebrate when they face Crystal Palace in the EFL Cup last 32. The Red Devils need this win to regain a much-needed confidence, but keep in mind that Erik ten Hag is going to mix the squad against the Eagles. All Garnacho, Amrabat, Eriksen, and Martial are pushing for a start, as well as towering centre-back Raphael Varane, who came as a substitute in the last league match.
The capital club, on the other hand, played out a goalless draw with Fulham in the local derby at the weekend. Palace have big ambitions for the 2023/2024 EFL Cup campaign, but seeing that Man Utd defeated the Eagles in the previous two meetings between the two sides at Old Trafford, we are tempted to put our money on Erik ten Hag’s troops. All James Tomkins, Jefferson Lerma, and Nathan Ferguson are unlikely to be risked, while Omotayo Adaramola, Matheus Franca, and Michael Olise remain in the recovery room.
