Manchester United will profit if it prevents Crystal Palace from escaping the rut.

Crystal Palace will host Manchester United on Thursday at Selhurst Park in a Premier League Round 36 game. Manchester United is in fifth place in the Premier League standings and must beat Crystal Palace in order to keep pace with Chelsea and Leicester City, its rivals for England’s final two spots in next season’s UEFA Champions League.
