Crystal Palace v Man United: In-form Lukaku a danger to Eagles
Selhurst Park has been a happy hunting ground for Manchester United down the years.
The Red Devils have not lost in this corner of South London since a 3-0 defeat in May 1991.
In that time, tonight’s visitors have picked up 19 victories from 24 matches in all competitions against Crystal Palace. With the Eagles currently winless in five matches, tonight’s fixture only looks like adding to that dismal run.
Jose Mourinho’s men have won eight of their last 11 matches since the turn of the year. That good form has been in large part down to the renaissance of Romelu Lukaku.
The Belgian forward netted against Chelsea last weekend to take his tally to seven goals in his last nine matches.
He particularly enjoys facing Crystal Palace, too. Lukaku has netted five goals against the Eagles since September 2014.
As for Palace, Luka Milivojevic has been in rich scoring form of late. The Serbian midfielder has three goals in his last five matches in the Premier League. He’s 11/2 to continue that run Anytime this evening.
If the 26-year-old is to net at Selhurst Park, he’ll need to get past a miserly United defence.
The Red Devils have conceded just four goals in their last 1134 minutes of football. It’s 13/10 for the visitors to Win to Nil.
Likewise, five of United’s last six matches have seen Under 2.5 Goals scored. That record is four in six for Palace.
Victory for the visitors will put them back above Liverpool into second. Mourinho’s men are 23/20 to Win the League without Manchester City.
