Hard to see Palace scoring 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.

Marouane Fellaini and Phil Jones could shake off minor injuries but Michael Carrick, Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo are unavailable. Anthony Martial (thigh) is a doubt.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek (thigh) and James Tomkins (illness) have joined Christian Benteke, Wilfried Zaha and Connor Wickham on the sidelines and Timothy Fosu-Mensah cannot face his parent club.
Crystal Palace have not scored in their last seven league fixtures.
