The Red Devils are currently in the driving seat in the competition to qualify for the Champions League.

They are four points ahead of fifth placed Liverpool, and know if they beat Crystal Palace and their Merseyside rivals lose to Chelsea on Sunday there will not be enough time in the remaining two matches for the Reds to catch them.

However, a win over the Eagles is far from certain as the Old Trafford outfit have lost their last three games to Chelsea, Everton, and West Brom.

The South London side have also got a history of destroying clubs’ dreams at the end of campaigns. They beat Liverpool at the end of last season to knock their title hopes off kilter, and now Palace could make up for that by beating United on the weekend.
