Crystal Palace vs Manchester United: Michael Owen shares his prediction for the game

Former Manchester United striker Michael Owen has backed the club to secure all three points in our Premier League game against Crystal Palace on Wednesday night.

The Red Devils will travel to Selhurst Park to take on Roy Hodgson’s side and will be aiming to revenge our opening day of the season home defeat against the Eagles.

However, Owen has backed United to secure a narrow win.

Speaking ahead of United’s clash against Palace at Selhurst Park, Owen told BetVictor: “Sunday’s goal-less draw at Stamford Bridge means that it’s now 20 games unbeaten on the road for Manchester United.

‘They couldn’t get their usual counter-attacking game flowing in that match, but that was down to Chelsea’s tactics more than anything else.

“I think that could be slightly different here. On home soil, Palace are likely to play on the front foot. If that happens, I think United will once again get their reward on the counter. With that in mind, I reckon the away side will take the points, albeit by a narrow margin.”

Owen prediction – Crystal Palace 0:1 Manchester United
