Manchester United will be looking to secure the sixth position in the Premier League table when they travel to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace on the final matchday of the 2021/22 Premier League season.


Crystal Palace found themselves two goals ahead at Goodison Park on Thursday evening, with Jean-Philippe Mateta and Jordan Ayew on the scoresheet in the opening 36 minutes. Still, they slipped to a 3-2 defeat in a spirited second half from the Toffees. Despite losing to Everton, it has been a positive season for Palace, with 45 points from 37 matches leaving them in the 13th spot in the premier league table, and they have not finished higher than 11th in the premier league since 2015. Prior to the Everton loss, Palace were on a four-game unbeaten run in the premier league and are unbeaten in their last seven home games. Their home record is impressive as they lost just four times at Selhurst Park so far with clean sheets in their last five games on home soil. Palace are expected to be missing Marc Guehi alongside Nathan Ferguson and Michael Olise due to injuries. James Tomkins and James McArthur are also major doubts. Predicted lineup: Guaita; Clyne, Andersen, Kouyate, Mitchell; Gallagher, Milivojevic, Eze; Ayew, Mateta, Zaha.


Manchester United were thrashed 4-0 at Brighton in their last premier league outing and have won just two of their last nine games, losing five. The Red Devils have lost each of their last five Premier League games away from home. Man United will record their worst ever Premier League season even if they manage to win this weekend, having collected just 58 points from their 37 matches, recording 16 wins, 10 draws and 11 defeats. The Red Devils have won six, drawn five and lost seven of their 18 away league fixtures this season, but hope for a premier league double over Palace, having recorded a 1-0 victory over the Eagles in December, thanks to a Fred goal. However, injuries have plagued the Red Devils of late with over seven first team players missing the defeat against Brighton. Paul Pogba, Eric Bailly, Luke Shaw, and Phil Jones are out injured. Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho are major doubts. Harry Maguire and Fred will likely return to the starting lineup. Predicted lineup: De Gea; Dalot, Maguire, Varane, Telles; Fred, McTominay, Fernandes; Elanga, Ronaldo, Rashford.
