Man Utd v Crystal Palace
Ian Holloway leads Crystal Palace to Old Trafford in Saturday’s early game buoyed by their 3-1 home win over Sunderland before the international break.
That was the Eagles first points in three games in the top-flight and they face the reigning champions who have stuttered in their last two matches.
United were poor in the 0-0 draw against Chelsea, failing to score at Old Trafford for the first time in 77 games (Arsenal, May 2009) and then lost 1-0 away to Liverpool.
If they don’t score against the Londoners, expect talk of a ‘mini-crisis’ a week out from the Manchester Derby at the Etihad.
Everton v Chelsea
Chelsea inflicted Everton’s only home loss in the Premier League last season when running out 2-1 winners at Goodison Park. Everton had taken an early lead but the Blues battled back with two goals from England’s Frank Lampard.
Both sides are unbeaten this season, but Chelsea lie second in the table with two wins and a draw, whilst new boss Roberto Martínez has yet to see his side pick up three points in three attempts.
The Toffees have won three of their last four home games against Chelsea and are on an impressive run of 11 games unbeaten at home in the Premier League – keeping a clean sheet in six of them.
Frank Lampard won his 100th international cap in the 0-0 draw against the Ukraine on Tuesday night and has scored 16 league goals for Chelsea since the beginning of the 2012 season.
