Form Martial set to terrorise Crystal Palace

Manchester United entertain struggling Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Saturday and will be hoping to heap more misery on the Eagles, who are yet to score a single goal and record a single point in the Premier League so far this season. For the second successive Saturday, the game will kick off at 15:00 BST.

Their first game against Manchester City this season, will take place on December 9, 2017.

It took just two minutes and 25 seconds to prove it was not going to be one of those awkward days against a team fighting for their lives.

The result left Palace rooted to the bottom of the table after a record seventh successive defeat without a goal to start the season. But there is no question that Palace are the biggest candidate - and by a wide margin - to get relegated to the Championship.

Jose Mourinho will look for his side to make a statement in the clash with Roy Hodgson's side. The former England manager knows the league extremely well, and has a fair share of experience dealing with relegation-complicated teams.

Then, against all the odds, Palace actually had a decent spell in the game, forcing a few corners and having a few shots at David de Gea's goal.

A knee injury has robbed Hodgson of main goalscoring threat Christian Benteke; the powerful forward has suspected ligament damage and as yet there is no definite timeline on his return.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek is also out with a recurrence of a thigh strain, while defender James Tomkins is missing through illness. The positive aspect, however, is that Freddie Ladapo is in contention to start according to Hodgson.

It was another fine afternoon for Manchester United at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Juan Mata, making his 200th Premier League appearance, gave United the lead after just three minutes, with Fellaini's goals followed by a late tap in for Romelu Lukaku, who scored for the 11th time in 10 games.

"He's got a new lease of life this season under Jose Mourinho".

Michael Carrick, Marouane Fellaini and Phil Jones didn't make the plane to Russian Federation for their 4-1 victory over CSKA Moscow on Wednesday.

Mata's quality has never been doubted but Fellaini looks to finally have also finally been accepted by United fans after so long being the symbol of everything that was wrong with the Moyes era at Old Trafford.
