Manchester United vs Crystal Palace Preview

Kevin Gallacher broke his arm and Chris Sutton went missing with a heel injury.

"Without a good team it is not possible -- and the team is playing well". Wilcox was sent off and Blackburn were knocked out.

Rookie forward Freddie Ladapo could solve Crystal Palace's striker crisis in Saturday's Premier League clash at Manchester United. For the hosts, Manchester United, they come into the game level on points with league leaders Manchester City, only with a marginally inferior goal difference thanks to City's demolition of Crystal Palace last week.

The likeliest answer is that Bakary Sako will start there.

Romelu Lukaku is 13/5 to score at least two goals.

He signed for Palace in 2016 but has never made a first-team appearance and instead played for the club's development squad.

United have already scored 29 times in all competitions during the 2017-18 campaign, while they have conceded just twice in their six Premier League matches, which represents a very impressive start to the season.

It is nearly impossible, after six defeats from six games, for Palace to feel optimistic about Saturday's game.

Hodgson also revealed that winger Wilfried Zaha is not ready to return to face Manchester United on Saturday following a knee injury. On the other hand, the home side will hope that this will be an easy three points as they head into the worldwide break. But how can Hodgson keep them optimistic when the prognosis is so grim?

"Obviously, if they do start with eight straight defeats that's hard but even then I don't think you can really start looking at relegation".

While he shone against Maribor, the former Toulouse man has taken his time to get started in La Liga this season, and has netted just once in four top-flight outings. There is pain ahead. "But I hope some of the players that couldn't play in Moscow can recover". Of course, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo also remain unavailable as they continue their recoveries from long-term injuries.

Similarly, a 4-1 defeat at Lazio in mid-August raised doubts about Milan's credentials under Vincenzo Montella, and they're a team who still need a significant result to affirm their status as Italy's coming force. There is no short-cut, there's no words.

On Sunday, Arsenal will look to make it five consecutive wins over Brighton and Jurgen Klopp will travel up to St James' Park looking for his first ever Premier League victory over Newcastle. United come into this having scored 17 goals in the Premier League so far, as well as a further seven in their two Champions League fixtures.

"I'm afraid there are a lot of injuries, which is bad news for us".

Did you know? When replacing Wayne Rooney during last season's encounter, Gomes became the youngest player since Duncan Edwards to feature for the club.

"I think Carrick has no chance", said Mourinho.

"I guess Jose will say it's not ideal to be playing Saturday afternoon after coming back from Russian Federation but they have a strong team and on paper are stronger than we are".
