Crystal Palace vs Man United

Crystal Palace are set to take on Manchester United this coming Saturday.

The Eagles got their 2020/21 Premier League campaign off to a solid start last weekend, with a 1-0 victory over Southampton.

As for Manchester United, they are actually yet to get their season underway, having been handed an extended break following the club’s Europa League run in 2019/20.

Regardless, the Red Devils, who recently added Donny van de Beek to their already impressive midfield, should prove a stern test for Palace.

Roy Hodgson on Said Benrahma

Ahead of Saturday’s meeting with United, meanwhile, Roy Hodgson held his latest press conference on Thursday.

During the presser, Hodgson was drawn on Crystal Palace’s links to Said Benrahma.

The Algerian was one of the Championship’s standout performers last term, netting 17 and assisting nine.

And, just this week, it was claimed that Palace were hopeful of reaching an agreement for the winger.

However, when speaking about Benrahma on Thursday, Hodgson remained rather coy:

“Not something we have discussed at great length, our interest is dependent on the price. It is not our priority, we’re still looking to get another striker in, that is the priority.”
