Key Stats:

  • Manchester United failed to win either of their league meetings with Crystal Palace last season (D1 L1). They’ve not gone three without a win against the Eagles since a run of four between 1925 and 1970.
  • Crystal Palace have won their last two away league games against Manchester United, as many as they’d managed in their previous 22 visits to Old Trafford in league competition (W2 D3 L17).

  • Wilfried Zaha netted twice in Crystal Palace’s 3-1 victory away against Manchester United last season – no player to have previously played for the Red Devils in the competition has ever scored in consecutive away games against them in the Premier League.

  • Man Utd forward Anthony Martial turns 26 on the day of this game. He scored on his birthday in 2018 against Arsenal, and he could become just the second player to score on his birthday on two different occasions in the Premier League, after Teddy Sheringham (1994 and 1995).
  • Since his debut for Manchester United in February 2020, Bruno Fernandes has been directly involved in more goals in all competitions than any other player for a Premier League club (79 - 45 goals, 34 assists).
