The 2020/21 Premier League season got underway last week, but today is the first time that Manchester United are involved as they host Crystal Palace. Don’t miss a moment with our Manchester United vs Crystal Palace live stream guide.
Manchester United were afforded an additional week to recover before the start of their Premier League campaign after progressing to the semi-final stage of the Europa League. That game took place just four weeks before the start of the Premier League season and saw The Red Devils fall 2-1 to eventual trophy winners Sevilla.
Crystal Palace were involved in week one of this year’s Premier League season and picked up three points at home to Southampton, an early Wilfried Zaha goal being the difference-maker in that game. The Eagles will hope to continue their winning ways as they travel to Old Trafford for this tie.
