Our football match prediction:
Manchester United will be looking to extend their winning run in the Premier League to three games when they host rock-bottom Crystal Palace at their Old Trafford. The Red Devils have been impressive in Jose Mourinho’s second season at helm and they are seen as hot favourites to win Saturday’s football match. Summer signing Romelu Lukaku scored the winner against Southampton (1-0) at the weekend and the Belgian attacker is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. The Eagles suffered a loss in each of their first six league fixtures and they were hammered by Manchester City (0-5) at Etihad Stadium on Matchday 6. New coach Roy Hodgson will have his work cut out for him at Selhurst Park and his men will have to make a big progress in days to come if they are to secure the top flight survival. Anyhow, we predict that Palace will return home empty-handed from the trip to Manchester.
