Given an extra week to recover, Manchester United will be desperate to lay down an early marker when they make their Premier League return against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Saturday evening.

While the former champions might have seen their Europa League adventure come to an abrupt end at the hands of eventual winners Sevilla out in Germany last month, they did manage to secure a top-four return after an eye-catching run after the enforced break.

On the flip side, while Crystal Palace might have managed to hang onto their 1-0 victory against Southampton in South London last weekend, the Eagles failed to drag that momentum into midweek.

Crashing out of the EFL Cup away at recently relegated Bournemouth thanks to a stunning penalty shoot-out on the South Coast, Roy Hodgson’s side could be in for a tricky evening on their travels this weekend.

Hit with a 2-0 defeat when the two sides faced off back in July, you might be interested to know that another United victory can be found priced at 4/11 with Unibet.

The return of Bruno Fernandes

Although Manchester United were left heartbroken to have seen Sevilla snatch a 2-1 win out in Germany last month, the Red Devils gained a string of praise for their stunning end to the extended 2019/2020 campaign.

Signing off the year with a deserved 2-0 win away at Leicester, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men managed to secure themselves a Champions League return after a glittering 14-match unbeaten run either side of football’s enforced break.

If United are to lay down an early marker at Old Trafford this weekend, Solskjaer will undoubtedly be calling on January arrival and new talisman Bruno Fernandes to spearhead their charge on home soil.

Along with finding the net in United’s final two Europa League appearances last month, the former Sporting Lisbon playmaker enjoyed a stunning immediate impact in Manchester and ended his campaign this summer with four goals in his final five appearances across all competitions

You might be interested to know, Fernandes is priced at 11/8 with William Hill to open his account at Old Trafford on Saturday evening.

Zaha does it again

While a dramatic penalties defeat away at the Vitality might have ended Crystal Palace’s EFL Cup adventure earlier in the week, the Eagles did manage to open the new Premier League campaign with a much-needed three points.

Showing a string off issues earlier in the summer and managing to collect just a single point over their final eight top-flight appearances, Head Coach Roy Hodgson would have been glad to see attacking talisman Wilfried Zaha open his account last weekend.

Bagging what turned out to be a first-half winner in Palace’s 1-0 win at home against Southampton seven days ago, the Ivory Coast international also enjoyed an eye-catching summer purple patch, bagging three pre-season strikes in their four outings.

In fact, Zaha has been directly involved in 60 Premier League goals for Palace (37 goals, 23 assists) – 28 more than any other player for the club in the competition.
