Man United v Palace: Looking At History Of Their Last 6 Clashes, Here’s What May Happen On Sunday
Crystal Palace will be visiting the Old Trafford on Sunday for the Premier League tie with home team, Manchester United. Following a defeat in their last game at the hands of Leeds United in Premier League competition, Crystal Palace will be hoping to turn things around on Sunday. Throughout their previous 6 clashes, Crystal Palace have struggled to net a goal against the Red Devils.
The statistics of their 6 previous clashes reveal that Crystal Palace had not been defeated by Manchester United when they played away from home in the previous 3 matches in the league. It also shows that Crystal Palace have not won away from home in their last 2 matches in the league. Looking at the statistics for their head to head clashes stretching back to 24/11/2018, Manchester United have clashed with Crystal Palace 6 times. Among these 6 times, Manchester United had won 2 of those games while Crystal Palace won 2. The rest were drawn.
A total of 13 goals were scored by the two clubs throughout the course of those matches. Among those 13 goals, 7 came from the Red Devils and 6 goals were netted by the Eagles. This gave an average of 2.17 goals per game.
The most recent encounter between these two clubs was on 03/03/2021 and the match ended in a 0-0 draw. That day, Crystal Palace had 37% ball possession and 8 attempts at goal while the Red Devils got 11 attempts on goal.
However, there’s only the one fitness issue for the Crystal Palace manager, Patrick Vieira to be concerned about; Eberechi Eze (Achilles tendon problems) won’t be playing here.
Looking at these statistics, in my opinion, I think Manchester United will be able to create a good number of chances and successful shots on target. Crystal Palace may also struggle to get a goal of their own. Guys, what are your views on this?
