Manchester United vs Crystal Palace Betting Tips

  • Manchester United and both teams to score (Yes) – 11/5
  • Manchester United to score in both halves – 13/10

Team news

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag will be without some key players for Tuesday’s match. Luke Shaw, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Lisandro Martinez are all out of action, but the latter could be in line for a return when they face the Eagles in the Premier League at the weekend. Mason Mount and Harry Maguire could both be back in the squad on Tuesday evening, which will be seen as a boost for the squad.

Michael Olise remains the only major injury concern for Crystal Palace heading into this one.

Manchester United and both teams to score (Yes) at 11/5

United ended a three-game run of losses at the weekend as they picked up three points against Burnley. Bruno Fernandes’ stunning volley was the difference between the two sides at Turf Moor, but the Red Devils were largely outplayed. That won’t matter as much after coming away with the victory but it is a reminder that they will need to improve if they are to put winning runs together.

We might see some changes to the lineup on Tuesday for both sides ahead of their meeting a few days later in the league. On paper, and with home advantage, the Red Devils should come through this test and be in the hat for the next round. Palace won’t make it easy for them, but United should have a spring in their step after winning at the weekend.

Manchester United to score in both halves at 13/10

While there is plenty of room for improvement in their passages of play, United are still able to conjure up goals even when not at their fluid best. The confidence gained from the weekend should carry them a long way against Palace on Tuesday, and if the team can produce a few goals, it will put many fans’ minds at ease.

Fernandes will be raring to go again after netting the winner on Saturday, while Marcus Rashford is looking for his second goal of the campaign in all competitions. This cup clash gives an opportunity to the players out of form to rediscover their confidence and get back on the scoresheet. The same goes for the likes of Alejandro Garnacho and Facundo Pellistri, who both could be granted a start against the Eagles.
