Manchester United are ready to back in the PL action after securing the Carabao Cup final. Tonight, they will host Crystal Palace at Old Trafford. Man United are in 4th place with 39 points, the same as Newcastle United. However, Erik Ten Hag will surely aim to secure three points at home.

Stats & Facts

Manchester United are unstoppable this season at Old Trafford. They have won nine of their last nine games in all competitions at Old Trafford. Moreover, The Red Devils have a 100% winning record in their last PL games at home.

But despite having strong records, Manchester United won just one of their last five games against Crystal Palace. The Red Devils almost won their previous meeting against the Eagles as they were in a 1-0 lead until 90 minutes. But Crystal Palace equalized in the injury time to tie the match.

Diogo Dalot has been fantastic this season. But the Portuguese became injured in the middle of the season. Fortunately, Dalot is back again for Manchester United and ready to play tonight. But Christian Eriksen, Donny Van de Beek, and Scott McTominay are still unavailable because of injury.

Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag talked about his players. “The problem is they are not always available, until now,” he said of Sancho and Martial.

The manager added, “We made a lot of compromises during the season so far. So, hopefully, we come to a point where everyone is available and to win trophies, they have to be available because you need them all because you have so many games to cover.”
