Manchester United meets with familiar opponent Crystal Palace this weekend in a Premier League match at Old Trafford. Due to the impact of the World Cup and the loss of Queen Elizabeth II, this is the second encounter between the two teams in 2023. In the first match, Michael Olise’s incredible free-kick earned Crystal Palace a 1-1 draw in January.
Although that result impacted Manchester United’s positive start to the year, the team has continued to perform well under Erik ten Hag, securing a spot in the Carabao Cup final against Newcastle with a 5-0 aggregate victory over Nottingham Forest.
Here’s all the crucial information for the match including start time, live streaming and TV options, expected lineups, and betting odds.

Man United vs Crystal Palace lineups
Erik ten Hag is facing some challenges in the midfield with Christian Eriksen unavailable until May and Scott McTominay expected to be out for another week. As a result, ten Hag is likely to make changes to the lineup after resting some players for the 2-0 victory in the Carabao Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest.
Newly acquired loan player Marcel Sabitzer will aim to make his debut in the matchday lineup.
Man United starting XI (4-2-3-1): De Gea (GK) — Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Martinez, Shaw — Casemiro, Fred — Antony, Fernandes, Rashford — Martial
Man United subs: Heaton (GK), Lindelof, Maguire, Sabitzer, Malacia, Garnacho, Weghorst, Pellestri, Sancho
Patrick Vieira’s side will be without key player Wilfried Zaha and defender Joachim Anderson, who are both unavailable for another week.
Arsenal loanee Albert Sambi Lokonga and recent arrival Naouirou Ahamada may make their debuts for Palace, potentially forming a new-look midfield. This will allow Jeffrey Schlupp to shift into a more advanced position and fill in for Zaha.
Crystal Palace starting XI (4-2-3-1): Guaita (GK) — Ward, Richards, Guehi, Mitchell — Doucoure, Lokonga — Ayew, Eze, Schlupp — Edouard
Crystal Palace subs: Johnstone (GK), Riedewald, Clyne, Ozoh, Ahamada, Milivojevic, Hughes, Olise, Mateta
Man United vs Crystal Palace prediction, odds
Manchester United’s recent record against Crystal Palace has been inconsistent, with the Eagles becoming a “thorn in the side” for the Red Devils, having won two of their last three Premier League matches at Old Trafford.
Patrick Vieira’s recent draws against Manchester United and Newcastle United have provided some stability for his team, and facing a team that played in the midweek, they will be optimistic of achieving a strong outcome in Manchester.
Prediction: A 1-1 draw
|Man United win||-250||4/11||1.40||-291|
|Crystal Palace win||+675||15/2||8.25||+682|
|Over/Under 2.5 goals||-130 / -105||4/5 / 10/11||1.85 – 1.95||-125 / -106|
|Both teams to score Y/N||+105 / -150||11/10 / 4/6||2.05 – 1.70||+102 / – 161|
