Saturdays Lunch time kick off see’s Champions Manchester United host Crystal Palace in what should be a very one sided Premier League affair.
After two fairly mute performances against Chelsea and Liverpool, United will be seeking to put in a commanding performance this weekend and get back to winning ways.
Let’s face it, Crystal Palace aren’t a very good team and won’t be spending more than a season in the Premier League. They are on a hiding to nothing in these games and if you look at Ian Holloway's record against the top four away from home it makes for sorry viewing. Four games played, four defeats, 15 goals conceded and I expect more of the same this campaign. With that in mind the 7/5 for +3.5 goals with Bet Victor appeals as our first prediction. The +2.5 is the safer option but at best price of 1/2 it’s about as appealing as night out with the cast of TOWIE.
Robin Van Persie has scored seven goals in six appearances in all competitions this season and can take his boot scoring form into this match. A centre back pairing of Gabbidon and McCarthy aren’t exactly formidable and he can certainly increase his goal tally on Saturday. Whilst he’s 8/13 to score anytime, he’s a more attractive 13/5 to score 2 goals or more with Sky Bet. He’s done that against Wigan, Swansea and Andorra so far this season and will have the chances to do so again.
Creating those chances will hopefully be Nani. Nani has just signed a new five year contract with The Red Devils when everyone expected him to be shown the door, which indicates Moyes has some faith in the frustratingly exciting winger. With injuries at the back, Valencia could be reverted to right back, offering Nani a place in the starting line-up. He should, in theory, terrorise whatever full back he comes up against and put in a commanding performance against the Premier League new boys. Currently 20/1 to be MOTM is might be worth risking a small wager on because on his day he can unstoppable.
