Premier League
3pm Saturday

Crystal Palace are the only team in Premier League history with no goals from their first six games and it is hard to see them finding the net against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Palace chairman Steve Parish decided against strengthening the forward line this summer and is left without a fit recognised centre-forward with Christian Benteke and Connor Wickham sidelined.

Palace defended well for almost a half at Manchester City before caving in. They are unlikely to stop Manchester United from recording a comfortable victory.
