Crystal Palace host Manchester United at Selhurst Park this evening in a Premier League contest that could have serious ramifications on United manager Erik ten Hag who’s team are embroiled in a tight contest for the remaining European places.


Wins for Newcastle and Chelsea have seen the Red Devils drop to eighth in the table where they are now outside of the automatic spots for next season’s European campaigns. Victory this evening would send them back up to sixth and keep them in control of their own destiny.


With matches against Arsenal and Newcastle on the horizon next week, United cannot afford to drop any points tonight and the manner in which they finish off this season could play a crucial part in whether Ten Hag keeps his job in the summer.


Elsewhere, a run of three wins and a draw have lifted Oliver Glasner’s Crystal Palace out of any relegation trouble with the club now looking to push on and finish as high as possible in the league.

Half-time! Crystal Palace 2-0 Man Utd

45+3 mins: This is a big 15 minute break for Erik ten Hag. He needs to whip his players into shape, get them controlling the ball and shore up the massively leaking defence.


A quick goal after the restart and they’re back in the game. So far though they’ve been outplayed, outclassed and outworked by Crystal Palace.


Oliver Glasner will just say ‘more of the same lads’ and that’s his team talk done.

Crystal Palace 2-0 Man Utd

45 mins: Three minutes of added time to play in the first time. Man Utd just need to get to the break and then they can reset.

Crystal Palace 2-0 Man Utd

43 mins: Manchester United are playing in a daze. They’ve not put up much of a fight and their defensive capabilities are shockingly poor.


Only Sheffield United, who are bottom of the table, have allowed more shots at their goal this season than Man Utd. That’s a horrendous stat for Erik ten Hag’s men.

GOAL! Crystal Palace 2-0 Man Utd (Mateta, 40’)

40 mins: Wow!


Crystal Palace turn the ball over in midfield and quickly thread it through a gap to Jean-Philippe Mateta. He’s one-on-one with Jonney Evans and skips around him with no effort.


The striker then brings the ball into the box and blasts a rocket past Andre Onana. What a strike!

Crystal Palace 1-0 Man Utd

36 mins: Antony brings down a nice aerial ball and slips a good pass inside to Hojlund. He has a long way to go to get to the box which gives Adam Wharton time enough to track back and perfectly execute a sliding tackle to recover possession.
