Palace v United: 10 essential pre-match stats

If you're looking for the need-to-know numbers ahead of Manchester United's Premier League game at Crystal Palace, then you've come to the right page!

Our forensic research has unearthed 10 essential pre-match stats and we start with a big one...

says

Our Emirates FA Cup win at Chelsea equalled our all-time club record of seven straight away wins. As such, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Reds can make history with a victory at Palace.

#MUtrivia
says

Our away record under Ole is played seven and won seven, scoring 17 and conceding just twice – only one of which (Aubameyang for Arsenal) came in open play.

#MUtrivia
says

We have won our last two Premier League matches in London, at Fulham and Tottenham, but haven't won on three consecutive top-flight trips to the capital since November 2014.

#MUtrivia
says

Our all-time record against Crystal Palace is P54 W36 D11 L7. Furthermore, we are unbeaten home and away in the Premier League against Palace with a record of P19 W15 D4 L0.

#MUtrivia
says

Roy Hodgson has faced United as manager of Blackburn Rovers, Fulham, Liverpool, West Bromwich Albion and now Crystal Palace. Our full record against the veteran is P15 W12 D1 L2.

#MUtrivia
says

Solskjaer faced 81 teams as a United player but Palace weren’t one of them. However, Ole did take on Hodgson’s Blackburn Rovers three times, winning all three and scoring twice.

#MUtrivia
says

David De Gea has now kept 100 clean sheets in the Premier League, following the 0-0 draw against Liverpool. If selected against Palace, it will be the Spaniard’s 349th United appearance.

#MUtrivia
says

We have kept a clean sheet in all three games that Chris Smalling has played in 2019, against Fulham, Chelsea and Liverpool. The experienced defender looks set to start at Palace.

#MUtrivia
says

At least one Academy graduate has scored in 15 of our last 18 games. Paul Pogba could improve that record tonight, or maybe even Angel Gomes, Jimmy Garner or Tahith Chong.

#MUtrivia
says

There has now been a youth-team graduate in our first-team matchday squad for each of the last 3,960 consecutive games, a proud record which dates all the way back to October 1937.

All stats were correct prior to kick-off on 27 Feb 2019. They first appeared on our Official App, which you can download from Apple's App Store or Google Play.
