Manchester United

Last updated: Sat 24 August 2019 08:25
In Brief

Convincingly outplayed in one half of both matches so far. Bailly, Dalot and Fosu-Mensah long-term absentees. Rojo and Sanchez set to leave.

Looking Back

United dropped first points in 1:1 draw vs. Wolves, with display not hugely convincing once again. Just like vs. Chelsea Red Devils were on the back foot for entire half and lucky not to lose.

Consistency missing from displays, with United allowing long periods of dominance to their opponents in both rounds so far.

Looking Ahead

Coach Solskjaer preferred James ahead of Perreira last weekend and this likely to remain the order of choice.

Other 10 starters same in first 2 rounds and hoping to retain their spots.

Rojo and Sanchez almost certain to leave club for Italy very soon, while Bailly and Fosu-Mensah long-term absentees. Dalot also out until September after recent injury.

Points of Interest

Achieved 6 wins and 1 draw in last 7 league clashes between sides.

Crystal Palace

Last updated: Sat 24 August 2019 08:27
In Brief

Yet to score this season. Sakho and Tomkins remain sidelined.

Looking Back

Palace are yet to score this season, with last weekend bringing 0:1 away defeat vs. Sheffield United. Eagles lacked creative ideas in attack in that game and deservedly couldn’t find back of net.

Big star Zaha needs to retune his focus after desired transfer away failed through, with game against the club that treated him badly not so long ago great motivator for him to start shining again.

Looking Ahead

Coach Hodgson has Sakho back in training for 2 weeks now but he is still not ready to return. Tomkins also remains out, his return scheduled for late September.

Meyer started first 2 rounds on left wing and didn’t impress, which now could see Schlupp preferred instead.

Points of Interest

Unable to score in any of last 6 visits to Old Trafford. The last time Palace player scored away league goal against Man United the year was 2004!
