A victory in this game can push both the teams up in the table. United can go upto 6th in the table while Palace can rise from 2 points away from relegation zone to 10th if other results go in their way. So, we can expect both the teams to give 100% effort but still United’s attack will be too strong for Palace’s defense to tame.
