Crystal Palace knew that heading into their Monday Night Football clash with Manchester United, they would know the state of play in the Premier League relegation dogfight and they’ll be pleased with how the results have played out for them.

With only Swansea in the bottom half winning over the weekend and a number of teams in the mix for the drop taking points off each other, the Eagles know that a win tonight can take them out of the relegation zone and as high as 13th in the table.

However, standing in their way are a Manchester United side who have dropped back to third following Liverpool’s win against Newcastle and Jose Mourinho’s side will look to regain second spot tonight.

In the reverse fixture, United ran out 4-0 winners at Old Trafford in September but Palace will be hopeful they can cause an upset tonight. Here is our predicted XI.
