Manchester United win

United managed to pip Chelsea and finish third on the log last season. The Red Devils are expected to cause trouble with Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba expected to start in the midfield.

Over 2.5/ Both teams to score

Both teams to score: 22bet (2.01), betway (2.01 odds). 

Anytime goalscorer: Bruno Fernandez 

Bruno Fernandes

Fernandez has been in fine form since signing for United in January from Sporting Lisbon. The 26-year-old has played 14 Premier League matches where he has netted 8 goals while providing three assists in the process. 

United have been fine while moving forward and could cause lots of problems to Palace’s defense. And United’s penalty record could continue this weekend. 

22bet is backing Fernandez to score a goal anytime at odd of 2.4 while youngster  Mason Greenwood has 2.25. For betway, Bruno has 2.21 while 22bet is giving Greenwood 2.25 odds to score any time during the match.
