Brilliant Fellaini double inspires United to emphatic win against desperate Palace

The Eagles lost their seventh consecutive Premier League game on Saturday as they succumbed to a 4-0 defeat at Manchester United.

Manchester United vs Crystal Palace: Today's Premier League clash is between Manchester United and Crystal Palace.

Rashford was involved in the goal and looked initially as if he might try to claim it as his free-kick, whipped in from the left, flew in at the far post.

Roy Hodgson could hardly have been given a more testing start following his appointment as Crystal Palace manager just four games into the new season.

United boss, Jose knows how to win these games.

Palace's hopes of picking up their first points of the season at Old Trafford look slim with United having won all three home league games without conceding a goal.

Marouane Fellaini could also fail to feature, after limping off when the side played Southampton at the St. Mary's Stadium. Fans Favorite Ander Hererra will likely partner Nemanja Matic in a midfield pivot, the Spanish global will be starting his second game in the Premier League this season since the 2-2 draw at Stoke. However, we can't see anything other than a home win in this fixture, and we are going with the same as our prediction.

Anthony Martial has scored in his last three appearances for United, and he is better value for money at the best odds of 5/4. Even outside of their historic lack of goalscoring, they've had such a bad a start it's nearly unheard of, especially for a team like Palace that actually has pretty solid talent in the side.

United nearly scored again when Nemanja Matic and then Mata went close while Palace, without the injured Christian Benteke, struggled to create anything of note. But another game without a point or a goal will not help the confidence levels at Selhurst Park.

United struggled for goals last season and were overly reliant on Zlatan Ibrahimovic to deliver the goods, though he often missed some big chances despite a highly respectable final tally of 28 for the campaign.

Manchester United: De Gea; Young, Bailly, Smalling, Shaw; Matic, Herrera; Mata, Mkhitaryan, Rashford; Lukaku. Christian Benteke has been ruled out for a six-week period with a knee injury, but he is not the only one who will be out.
