Man United want to fill the gap in Manchester City ahead of Sunday’s big derby as the Red Devils face a trip to the Crystal Palace tonight

Man City extended their lead in the title race – if you can call it that – to 15 points, with a hard-fought 4-1 win against the Wolves last night

Despite United have a game against their rivals, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must win at Selhurst Park to have a chance to reduce City’s lead to single digits before the week is up. Edinson Cavani begins to step up Solskjaer’s attack, but David De Gea missed out due to personal reasons
As for Palace, Roy Hodgson’s side bounced back from a dire 3-0 home loss to Burnley and took four points from Brighton and Fulham, easing pressure on the manager

The Eagles look relatively safe when it comes to avoiding a relegation battle With around a dozen players out of contract this summer, Hodgson tasked his squad with proving they deserve new deals – and a big performance against United wouldn’t hurt

Palace took on a slightly more expansive form tonight but managed to hold on to the solid side that was seen against Brighton and Fulham tonight, the two broad midfielders are working very hard to get back on and help me just have to be faster in the break

43 minutes: Brilliant defense against Ward when he intercepts a Wan Bissaka cross from Cavani in the final ditch – that would have been an almost certain goal and the Uruguayan striker shows it with his reaction

Townsend was good at taking some valuable free kicks to ease the pressure on Palace – decent from him tonight

United fans would likely forgive the Chelsea draw if their side blew out of the blocks tonight, but they can’t really afford two draws in a row

There’s a real lack of urgency and quality on the pitch tonight Both sides look leggy, which isn’t a huge surprise given the season so far, but there’s not much to write home about

36 mins: Townsend runs out of defense and wins a free kick from Fred He looks frustrated – United don’t look good in attack, apart from those few chances
