Manchester United's top-four aspirations were dealt an unwelcome blow late on against Southampton, ultimately dropping points in a frustrating 2-2 draw.

Can they return to winning ways against an unpredictable Palace side that have won just once since last month's resumption? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Crystal Palace vs Manchester United Betting Tips

Their lacklustre marking and questionable defending had come under-fire before, but Harry Maguire's involvement in a preventable equaliser spoke volumes.

The £80m central defender was caught ball-watching and importantly, out of position as substitute Michael Obafemi got the finishing touch. United's lead, one they had held for over 70 minutes, had suddenly evaporated.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men squandered a golden opportunity to break into the top-four and take advantage of Chelsea's weekend defeat.

Now, they face a Palace side enduring a five-match losing streak next. Roy Hodgson's side are closer towards the relegation places than a credible mid-table finish, in a frustrating end to a promising season for Thursday's hosts.

They'll be without Christian Benteke for this clash, after the Belgium international was sent off in stoppage-time for violent conduct against former club Aston Villa. Wilfried Zaha, their star man, was again their most effective performer at Villa Park. Yet the Ivory Coast winger has only recorded one goal involvement in his last nine games.

Those statistics aren't good enough for a player of his ability, and he'll be motivated to impress against United. After all, it was the Red Devils who bought him for £15m seven years ago, under Sir Alex Ferguson.

Solskjaer said that Greenwood is doubtful after suffering from a late challenge, while Luke Shaw (hamstring) and Brandon Williams are equally questionable to feature.

Crystal Palace vs Manchester United Correct Score Predictions

United were left frustrated earlier this week, and I'd be surprised if their disappointments continued. Palace have struggled and suffered an all-too-frequent blip in terms of results, so would love to spring a surprise.

With that being said, I highly doubt that would be the case here.
