Manchester United have scored 17 Premier League goals and are averaging 2.83 goals per game. Their victory over Southampton last Saturday was the first time they have won by a solitary goal this season.

They have scored 10 of their Premier League goals at home and seven away from home.

David de Gea has kept five clean sheets in six Premier League games this season, with Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting the only player to score against him in the league.

Manchester United have won by a scoreline of 4-0 three times this season, twice at home and once away.

Romelu Lukaku has scored in five of United’s six top flight fixtures and is averaging a goal a game in the Premier League.

Crystal Palace are the first English team ever to lose all six of their opening top flight matches and not score a solitary goal.

Roy Hodgson takes charge of his third game as Palace manager. So far, he has seen his side concede six goals in two matches. Two of those have come in the first half with four in the second.

The South London side have conceded 13 goals already - an average of 2.17 goals a game.

The last time Crystal Palace scored a Premier League goal was against Hull in May 2017 when a 4-0 win at Selhurst Park secured their top flight status for another season.

The last time that Crystal Palace won at Old Trafford was back in 2011. It would be a League Cup tie which saw the Eagles earn a shock 2-1 win over Sir Alex Ferguson’s side.
