Man United vs Crystal Palace: Prediction, kick off time, TV, live stream, team news, h2h results - preview

A new era begins at Manchester United today as Ralf Rangnick takes charge for the first time against Crystal Palace.

Presumably, the club took the decision to appoint the man widely credited with having an influence on the tactical philosophies of both Thomas Tuchel and Jurgen Klopp in an attempt to modernise and revamp their coaching structure.

Michael Carrick has stepped down, potentially allowing Rangnick to exert even more of his influence on the team and, having held his first press conference, it will be fascinating to see how United lineup in his image.

Palace, meanwhile, have already produced a scalp in Manchester this season and look to be reaping the rewards of their own rebuild over the course of the summer.

Certainly, it’s hard to expect United will sit back as they did against Chelsea, although Patrick Vieira’s side can cause problems of their own.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Manchester United vs Crystal Palace is scheduled for a 2pm GMT kick-off today - Sunday December 5, 2021.

Old Trafford in Manchester will host.

Man United vs Crystal Palace prediction

With United getting to grips with what will surely be a radical new style of play, it seems reasonable to expect at least some kind of teething problems.

Palace, meanwhile, have been the masters of the draw this season, so that appears to be a likely outcome.

1-1 draw.
