The Red Devils will be itching to get back on the winners list

Manchester United are primed to put a tough week behind them as they welcome Crystal Palace to Old Trafford at 12.00am (AEST) on Sunday.

After the penalty drama that eminated from Tuesday's draw against Wolves and the racism directed toward Paul Pogba, United will be expecting to get the three points against their struggling opponents with Sportsbet offering an attractive $2.10 for the Red Devils to win to nil.

With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side paying a short $1.36 to win outright, you can find better value in the handicap markets with the home side to win by two or more goals ($2) - especially considering Palace's drab form with no goals and only one point from their opening two games.

New number nine Anthony Martial has struck a goal in each of United's first two Premier League matches - with the $5 on offer for him to strike first against Palace looking juicy.

Pogba will be keen to make amends for his spot-kick miss at Molineux and he could be extra motivated to find the net ($2.40) at some point during the 90 minutes.

For Palace, their usual penalty taker Luka Milivojevic is at good odds of $5.50 to score at anytime, while former Red Devils striker Wilfried Zaha is $4.50 to find the back of the net.

Best Multi-Bet

After his Manchester City side conceded two goals against Tottenham last weekend, Pep Guardiola can be expected to have his defenders well-drilled for the trip to Bournemouth on Sunday (AEST).

City to win to nil at the Vitality Stadium is paying $2 - which appears to be decent value considering they only conceded three shots in the entire match to a stronger Spurs outfit.

You can take the English champions getting a clean sheet in a win and put it together with Everton in the draw no-bet market ($1.64) against Aston Villa for attractive odds of $3.28 - with the fall back option of the Toffees getting a draw not ruining your bet.

The Villans have lost both their Premier League matches to Tottenham and Bournemouth, while Everton got their first win against Watford last weekend and appear to be building under Marco Silva.

Stay Away

Chelsea's failure to get a win in their opening two league matches make them a risky proposition as they head to Norwich on Saturday night.

The Blues are at an inflated $1.72 to get the victory but you can't discount the Canaries ($4.20), who destroyed Newcastle 3-1 last weekend with Finnish striker Teemu Pukki snaring a hat-trick.
