Manchester United vs Crystal Palace on August 24: Kick-off, head to head, form, team news, broadcast information

What is the position of Manchester United and Crystal Palace?

Manchester United is fourth with four points from two games. Crystal is yet to secure a win after securing a draw from two matches. 

What is the form of Manchester United as compared to Crystal Palace's?

Manchester United's unbeaten run from the preseason is yet to be tempered with as Red Devils still remain on a steady course in the new Premier League season. The Red Devils have featured in two matches since the commencement of the campaign, defeating Chelsea via a 4-0 scoreline before drawing 1-1 with Wolves.

In the latter, it was hardly as a result of the lack of trying as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men squandered multiple chances to snatch the potential winner. That withstanding, the team is still soaring high in confidence and the summer reinforcements have renewed optimism by proving to fans why they were recruited in the first place. As things stand, Manchester United is on an eight-game unbeaten run and has only lost once in the last 10 matches.

On the contrary, Palace will be aiming for a swift change in fortune as its form in the last 10 matches does not bid well for the club. The Selhurst Park outfit began the season with a 0-0 draw at home to Everton but fell to a narrow 1-0 defeat away to Sheffield United in the subsequent encounter.

In retrospect, Roy Hodgson's side has registered just two wins from the last 10 outings while the number of draws and defeats have risen two and six respectively.

What is the head-to-head record of Manchester United vs Crystal Palace?

Manchester United is yet to put a foot wrong in 22 league meetings since May 1991, Till date, the Reds have registered 18 wins and four draws during the period.

Momentarily, Palace is on a drought in 20 Premier League meetings against the Old Trafford outfit and holds the record for the team in top-flight English football to have faced another side in the division without ever earning a victory.

The last Premier League meeting between the two sides ended 3-1 in favor of Manchester United at the Selhurst Park in February this year.

What are the managers saying ahead of Manchester United vs Crystal Palace?

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Manchester United

"It's gonna be a tough game as all these games in the Premier League are. Every single one they give you a different challenge and of course they're a very well organised team.

"They've pace up front, good counter attacks, big on set pieces and we have to do all parts of the game, have to attack well, win the ball back when we lose it and we've got to be strong on set plays.

"I didn't watch the game last year. We had a game ourselves with Molde but I heard they had a few counter attacks.

"Wilf (Zaha) was close to scoring, team spirit great, and we've got loads of energy and passion. You can see the way we went about the game at Wolves our pressing was excellent.

"We gave them five minutes in the second half that was it really apart from that... the engine looks so much better, and everyone is fit, when you're fit you're mentally strong as well."

Roy Hodgson, Crystal Palace

"Old Trafford has always been a daunting place to go if you need a result and unfortunately my record there doesn't really measure up to any high degree of scrutiny, but that is because they are a top club.

"They really have the ability to sign players that we will never have, but it is a great occasion. Every footballer would like to play there. In that respect it is a great occasion, but it is not an easy game."
