Former Arsenal player, Paul Merson has predicted that Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United will defeat Crystal Palace in Saturday’s Premier League fixture at Old Trafford.
Mourinho’s men head to the game following a 3-1 defeat by Manchester City in their last Premier League encounter.
Merson, however, is expecting a comfortable win for the home side.
“A very comfortable win for United,” Merson told Sky Sports.
“There are worse Premier League teams than Palace, but it is quite worrying for them. They are solid at the back, but cannot score or get things going.
“So this is the perfect game for United – Wilfried Zaha has gone off the boil a little bit, he is trying to do everything himself like the school captain and is not running with the ball so much, instead trying to hold the ball up and win fouls.”
The kick-off time for the match is 4pm.
