Manchester United can go second and above Manchester City with a win in London.

Manchester United are back in Premier League action as they look to carry on their recent good form. The Red Devils are flying and made it seven straight wins thanks to Saturday’s 2-1 win over city rivals Manchester City.

Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes were on target in the derby win which moved United just one point behind City. In midweek they head to London to face an out-of-sorts Crystal Palace. Led by former Arsenal captain Patrick Viera, the Eagles are on a dreadful run of form having lost four of their last five games in the Premier League.
