Players to watch in Manchester United vs Crystal Palace:

Jean-Philippe Mateta (Crystal Palace):

Mateta is a valuable asset to Crystal Palace, and he is a player who has the potential to become a top striker in the Premier League. Mateta has started the season as Crystal Palace’s backup striker to Odsonne Edouard. However, Mateta has also been criticized for his lack of consistency. In some games, he has looked sharp and dangerous. In other games, he has looked anonymous and ineffective. He has played as a substitute in this Premier League season but in the EFL Cup, he started their second-round match and scored a hattrick in Crystal Palace’s win over Plymouth Argyle.

Hannibal Mejbri (Manchester United):

The young player was surprisingly given a chance to start in their Premier League match against Burnley on Saturday night, and he made the most of it. He was great at pressing the opposition players for most of the game. Hannibal Mejbri could become a first-teamer under manager Erik ten Hag after a stellar showing against Burnley in the Premier League. In his first start of the season, he had a passing accuracy of 91 per cent, winning four duels and two tackles, his energy on the pitch was something to look for in that match.
