Crystal Palace vs Manchester Utd Premier League Live Football Score 3 March 2021
Manchester United take on Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Wednesday evening.
It’s the second trip to the capital in just over 72 hours for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men, after United and Chelsea fought out a goalless draw on Sunday. Wednesday’s hosts ran out 3-1 winners at Old Trafford in our season premiere. The opening match was Donny van de Beek’s United debut and the Dutch midfielder marked the occasion by scoring on his first appearance at the Theatre of Dreams, although it would only turn out to be a consolation for the Reds.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will hope to have Edinson Cavani available for selection in south London in midweek, with the Uruguayan striker having missed four games with a muscle injury. Scott McTominay made a return to the Norwegian’s starting line-up against Chelsea, while van de Beek was an unused substitute on Sunday. Paul Pogba and Phil Jones remain sidelined.
For the hosts, ex-Red Wilfried Zaha has missed the last four games with a thigh injury and Roy Hodgson suggested it was unlikely he’d return to face his former club. Hodgson also has injuries in defence, as Mamadou Sakho and James Tomkins have both been unavailable for over a month. In midfield, Jeffrey Schlupp is struggling with a hamstring injury, while James McArthur is recovering from a knock.
