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.

United are 2/9 to win the match but look better value at 10/11 to win to nil against the Eagles with David De Gea 8/11 to keep a clean sheet.

Last season’s top scorer Robin van Persie is 13/5 to get the first goal while two-goal Danny Welbeck is 9/2 in Paddy Power’s first-goalscorer market.

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.

Everton are 23/10 in the win-draw-win market and 9/2 to win to nil against Jose Mourinho’s side who are 5/4 favourites with Paddy Power and 15/8 to keep a clean sheet.

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.

The Chelsea midfielder is 7/1 to score the opening goal of the game and 23/10 with Paddy Power to hit the net at anytime over the 90 minutes.

And if Frank Lampard scores at anytime in this game, Paddy Power will refund on selected markets on that match
