If there’s a game this evening teed up for a mad result, it’s this one. It’s hard to know what to expect from either side of late, with Manchester United having wobbled against teams they should beat before putting in the sort of performance many associate with them to beat Spurs on the weekend.
Crystal Palace are a crazy side, too, with the Eagles the fifth-highest scorers in the division, despite being just three points above the relegation zone.
The bookies certainly favour Jose Mourinho’s troops, but who knows what will happen under the floodlights at Selhurst Park!

Palace have former Liverpool man Christian Benteke up front, while Mathieu Flamini starts in midfield.
Man United meanwhile make four changes from the team that beat Spurs, with Eric Bailly, Daley Blind, Juan Mata & Wayne Rooney replace Antonio Valencia, Matteo Darmian, Henrikh Mkhitaryan & Anthony Martial.
