Eighteenth-placed Crystal Palace welcome second-positioned Manchester United to Selhurst Park in the Premier League on Monday night.

The Eagles are facing troubled times. The 1-0 defeat they suffered in the hands of Tottenham Hotspur last weekend made it five games without a win in the English top-flight.

For United, they managed to snatch all three points from Chelsea last weekend though they sit in third place, 16 points adrift of runaway league-leaders and rivals Manchester City.

With the hosts’ unimpressive performance against the top teams in the league this season, LionsBet offers them at (6.50) as worthy underdogs.

Man United are favourites at (1.60) to pick up the vital win that will ensure they leapfrog Liverpool back to second place.

For the two clubs to share the spoils, which has paid out just once in the last seven encounters between them is priced at (4.15) by the same firm.

A first half win for the Old Trafford gladiators is priced at odds of (2.05) and this has paid out in five of the last seven meetings.

The Red Devils have not netted more than two goals on the road in the league since the beginning of December. One can conveniently back this fixture to end with under 2.5 goals chalked up at a chunky (1.80).

Romelu Lukaku continues his return to form after he cancelled out Willian’s opener when United clashed with Chelsea, making it six goals for the Belgian international in his last eight domestic games. He’s worth backing to score anytime at odds of (1.70).

Since Hodgson’s charges have struggled in front of goal against the big guns in this league, it’s worth backing Mourinho’s side to win to nil quoted by LionsBet at (2.30). Punters should expect massive fortune from this.
