United is at a crossroad, that is for sure. The departure of Alex Ferguson and arrival of David Moyes sends the Devils into a period of uncertainty, but they are still a top team in England and they have an underrated advantage: team cohesion (did not sell/buy too much). United won just 4 points in the first three rounds, but they had a really tough schedule (Swansea, Chelsea, Liverpool). This is a must win game for them and against the first easy opponent (on paper) they meet this season, they should be able to get a solid result.
Rooney and Fletcher will miss out on this game, also Jones and Rafael are doubtful. New boy Fellaini is in contention for United. The hosts also have a lot of players who were involved in International games friday and tuesday, but we are talking about the best players in the world, with great physical ability and professionalism, so it should not be a problem. The visitors have a lengthly injury list, a thing which will hurt them deeply since they have no depth in the squad. With 7 unavailable guys and 2 doubts, Palace will have big difficulties in fielding a competitive team. This is a big factor in this game, it could be decisive.
United: De Gea - Smalling, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evra - Cleverley, Carrick - Young, Wellbeck, Valencia - Van Persie
Palace is really, really poor and they will struggle mightly away from home with this squad. They will win some points at home, but like all minnows, they`ll have big problems when leaving the comfort of their own arena. United will put pressure from the first minute and they should be able to score at least 2-3 goals with all the quality they have and with the squad problems of Crystal Palace.
The Devils` seemingly poor start to the season assures some decent odds for United today, so I`l jump on the -2 asian handicap with big confidence and big stakes. I won`t say Man Utd will win 5-0, but I wouldn`t be surprised if they do.
