Four stats you need to know ahead of Crystal Palace vs. Man United

We’re lucky enough to receive a double-bill of Premier League action this week, with all 20 sides partaking in two games in the space of six days.

Everton and Arsenal kick off the fun at Goodison Park tonight and it continues tomorrow evening with a series of intriguing 8pms – not least including Manchester United’s trip to Selhurst Park.
