Manchester United vs Crystal Palace: Mark Lawrenson gives his prediction

Mark Lawrenson has backed Manchester United to beat Crystal Palace on Saturday at Old Trafford.

Stating his prediction for the Crystal Palace clash, Mark Lawrenson told BBC: “This is Manchester United’s first game back, while Palace started well, with a good win over Southampton.

“With Michy Batshuayi on loan from Chelsea, the Eagles look like they have a few avenues for goals, which has been a problem for them in the past.

“I still don’t think they will get anything at Old Trafford, though. They won here last season, which is another reason United will be fully switched on this time – they will remember that.”

Lawrenson’s prediction: Man United 2-0 Crystal Palace.
