Prediction for Manchester United vs Crystal Palace – Mark Lawrenson

Mark Lawrenson has given his prediction for Sunday’s Premier League game between Manchester United at Crystal Palace at Old Trafford.

Lawrenson told BBC: “Ralf Rangnick takes charge of Manchester United for the first time on Sunday and I’m definitely expecting a reaction from their players.

“There has already been an improvement in United’s performances since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s departure, which is understandable – everyone is already playing for their place and even the ones who were out of the team think they might have a chance because all the players start afresh.

“I think that improvement from United will continue. Crystal Palace will be trying to spoil the party at Old Trafford but they are another team who have had a bit of a blip since the international break and seem to have lost their momentum.”

Lawrenson’s prediction: Manchester United 2-0 Crystal Palace
