Here’s Tom Bowles‘ pick to get you started…

Man Utd to win and BTTS –

United rallied impressively against Chelsea last weekend and should claim all three points against a Crystal Palace side that are winless in five.

But don’t be surprised if they concede. Jose Mourinho’s side gift chances to their opponents most matches, especially away from home.

Sevilla should have netted at least once in last month’s Champions League first leg, while United’s defensive frailties were exposed in the recent defeats at Newcastle and Tottenham. 

Romelu Lukaku to score –

Lukaku was a player transformed after equalising against Chelsea last time out, producing his best performance in a United shirt.

The 24-year-old has scored seven goals in his last 10 matches, and grabbed a brace against Huddersfield in the FA Cup – the last time United played a Premier League club away from home.

Jesse Lingard to score –

Lingard is United’s second-top scorer this season, a superb return for a player who didn’t establish himself as a starter until November. Last week’s winner against Chelsea took his tally to 13, while he has netted in away matches at Arsenal, Everton, Watford and West Brom.

Over 10.5 corners

Palace’s matches this season have averaged more than 11 corners per match – the most of any Premier League club, while United are just behind them with 10.

Expect something similar under the floodlights on Monday night, where United’s sometimes-brittle backline will be forced to try and deal with high balls aimed towards Christian Benteke.
