ABOUT
Both sides come into this game on the back of a three game losing run without finding the back of the net in that time. After defeats to West Bromwich Albion, Hull City and Chelsea, Alan Pardew's side take on a United side reeling from losses to the Blues, Everton, and the Baggies.

History isn't on Palace's side if they're looking to score for the first time since Yannick Bolasie sealed his hat-trick at Sunderland last month. The Eagles have failed to score in eight of the last 10 meetings with the Red Devils in all competitions, including the last four.

United have lost just two of their last 22 Premier League away games in London, which both came against Chelsea, and have conceded just three goals in their last eight trips to London.

However should Palace turn the record books on their head, then they would condemn Louis van Gaal's side to a fourth straight league defeat - the last time that happened was February 1979.


TEAM NEWS
Crystal Palace: Pardew's only concerns remain with Fraizer Campbell and Marouane Chamakh who are both out with hamstring injuries.

Mile Jedinak could be in line for a recall after remaining on the bench for last weekend's defeat at Stamford Bridge.

Manchester United: Van Gaal once again has many injury problems to contend with Michael Carrick (calf) and Rafael (rib) missing the defeat to West Brom last Saturday.

Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw and Jonny Evans could all be fit enough for a spot on the bench at Selhurst Park.

Manchester United ended a three-match Premier League winless run as goals from Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney condemned Crystal Palace to defeat.

Rooney had a first-half cross cleared off the line by Damien Delaney before Marouane Fellaini shot wide.

Van Persie slotted home his fourth goal in five games from the penalty spot after Patrice Evra was fouled by Palace striker Marouane Chamakh.

And Rooney doubled the lead with a shot into the top corner from 12 yards.
