Manchester Utd vs Crystal Palace
Manchester Utd 1.38 | Draw 5.40 | Crystal Palace l 8.90
Kickoff: 19th September 2020, 4:30pm (GMT)
Manchester United will be hosting Crystal Palace for the first home match in the 2020/21 English Premier League season.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side started this season a week later than most of the teams because of their Europa League semi-final run last season. Crystal Palace began their campaign a week ago with a 1-0 win over Southampton.
The Red Devils begin this season with the longest ongoing unbeaten streak in the EPL, having ended the previous season on a 14-game run without defeat which stretches back to January.
Our Tip: Manchester United to win @1.38
Palace finished 14th last term and Roy Hodgson’s team made a bright start to their new campaign by beating Southampton 1-0 at Selhurst Park last weekend Saturday.
United leads with 17 wins from the 22 EPL meetings with Crystal Palace with Roy Hodson’s side having one victory at Old Trafford last season with goals from Jordan Ayew and Patrick van Aanholt.

The host team will put in all efforts to ensure that their first EPL game will grant them victory in their home.

Kickoff: 19th September, 2020, 7:00pm (GMT)
Arsenal begins their home encounter in the 2020/21 EPL season by hosting West Ham United at the Emirates.
The Gunners will look to ensure that they continue their winning streak following their Community Shield success and great season opener that saw Arsenal registering a 3-0 victory over Fulham last weekend.
Our Tip: Both teams to score @1.72
West Ham’s victory over Newcastle last weekend dented the morale of West Ham United. But their victory over Charlton in the Carabao Cup got them back to winning ways.
The Gunners continue their six wins in their last seven competitive outings for Arteta’s men, including the Community Shield triumph, and they will be looking to keep the feel-good factor alive.
