Did you know?

Crystal Palace are looking to complete their first-ever league double over Man Utd.

Twenty one of Palace’s 43 goals conceded this season have come in either the first 15 minutes (nine) or the final 15 minutes (12) of action, more than any other team in the competition.

Man Utd’s seven-match unbeaten run in London (W4 D3) is their longest such streak since 2013.

The Red Devils have won nine of their last 11 midweek (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday) PL fixtures.
