Manchester United vs Crystal Palace
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 24 August 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Old Trafford (Manchester).
United is a team in the process of rebuilding. Over the course of the last few years, they have witnessed a severe reduction in their fear-factor, and they have been remodeled second in line to the likes of arch-rivals Liverpool and Manchester City.
The management seems desperate to make immediate changes to the situation, and the desire has been on full display this transfer window. With two gems of arrivals in the backline, their defensive woes should take a drastic drop. In fact, with the costliest defender ever, Manchester should not be complaining anymore about leaking goals.
