Live on Skysports 1: Wed 19.45: With Crystal Palace struggling to score, Man United are 17/10 (Paddy Power) to win by three or more.
In the Carling Cup, Man United look set to progress to the semis as William Hill’s 1/4 favs. Crystal Palace, 14/1 with Sportingbet, are staring down the barrel as they look unlikely to continue their good run.
Palace have already knocked out Premier League side Wigan at Selhurst Park but it took a real effort and away at Old Trafford is a whole new dimension. Skybet make it 11/1 that Palace can emulate Newcastle’s weekend efforts and force extra time with a 1-1 draw but evidence suggests they may struggle to even score.
With no goals in 5 games, the Eagles are sitting ducks and Man United, who were fairly unlucky not to score 2 or more at the weekend, should pick them off easily. Ladbrokes make Ferguson’s side evens to grab 3 or more while bet365 say 10/11 for a win to nil.
