Manchester United will make the trip to Crystal Palace on Wednesday night as Jose Mourinho’s side look to return to winning ways on the road in the Premier League.

The Red Devils were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw at Goodison Park in their last away game in the Premier League despite a dominant performance against the Toffees.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic broke the deadlock against Ronald Koeman’s side before Marouane Fellaini proved to be the villain after bringing down Idrissa Gueye in the 89th minute.

Everton defender Leighton Baines equalised from the penalty spot to secure a valuable point and condemn the 20-time English champions to a third successive 1-1 stalemate.

Jose Mourinho was appointed as Louis van Gaal’s successor in May after the Dutch head coach led the 20- time English champions to a disappointing fifth-place finish.

Manchester United have only managed to secure two victories in their last 11 Premier League fixtures to leave England’s most-successful club well off the pace in the title race.

Crystal Palace, who are sponsored by Mansion Group who own one of the biggest online casinos on web, have managed to unearth some decent Premier League form in recent weeks after Alan Pardew had been under pressure in recent months in the English top flight.

The Eagles were surprise 3-0 winners against Southampton at Selhurst Park last month despite their poor run of form. It ended a staggering run of six successive Premier League defeats.

Manchester United have a good recent record against the London side. The Red Devils were 2-1 winners against Palace in the FA Cup final last season after an extra-time winner.

In terms of the Premier League, the 20-time English champions were 2-0 winners against Palace at Old Trafford in April after a goalless draw at Selhurst Park in 2015.
