Manchester United vs. Crystal Palace

 

Match Date: 08 November 2014 (local time)

Venue: Old Trafford

 

Manchester United

The Red Devils cannot seem to find the perfect combination of players that will generate consistency and wins for the club. After forcing Chelsea into an even steven finish and building a new hope for a brighter future, United crumbled in its derby against Manchester City.

 

Thus, instead of climbing upward in the league table, the celebrated club continues to slip further into the mid-table and with Chris Smalling incurring a red card, it looks like Louis Van Gaal has more problems to address than what is expected.

 

Crystal Palace

Crystal Place just went through a dreaded moment when Sunderland defeated them. The club spiraled into the relegation zone after the said loss and with United lined-up for their next match, it looks like the squad will have a hard time generating a win. The Eagles hardly won against United, which has been considered as one of the top picks in sports betting.

 

Prediction

Manchester United 3-1 Crystal Palace

Burnley vs. Hull

 

Match Date: 08 November 2014 (local time)

Venue: Turf Moor

 

Burnley

Still winless, Burnley is in dire need of a victory. The season’s first half is almost over and the matches get more difficult after the winter break. By that time, it becomes a little bit hard for Burnley to recover, although there are teams, which have managed to survive despite the said ordeal. Classic examples of these were Crystal Palace and Sunderland. However, considering the great challenges that they will have to endure, Burnley must readily avoid such trouble as soon as possible should it want to retain its Premier League status.

 

Hull

A narrow defeat prevented Hull from unleashing the Tiger within. Just recently, the club suffered a narrow defeat to Southampton. This was after delighting the supporters with a scoreless stalemate against Liverpool.

 

Pitted against Burnley, expect the club to maximize every scoring opportunity that it encounters to collect the much needed points.

 

Prediction

Burnley 1-2 Hull
