The Manchester United steamroller hit a bump on Monday night when they were held to a 2-2 at Old Trafford by Southampton.
After four successive league wins by three clear goals, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s were pegged back by a late Saints equaliser Old Trafford, keeping them outside the top four by goal difference with three games remaining.
On Thursday they go to Crystal Palace in search a win that will help them keep their Champions League qualification hopes alive.
Roy Hodgson’s Palace have lost their last five, shipping 13 goals and scoring just two in the process, as they meander towards the end of the season in mid-table.
However, Palace did beat Utd 2-1 in August’s reverse fixture, thanks to a 93rd-minute winner from Patrick van Aanholt.
What time is Crystal Palace vs Man Utd?
Kick-off at Selhurst Park is at 8.15pm on Thursday evening.
It’s one of four games being played that day, with a south coast derby between Southampton and Brighton being the other 8.15pm match.
Earlier in the evening, Man Utd’s top four rivals Leicester entertain Sheffield United at 6pm, while Aston Villa go to Everton.
