BT Sport to air Man U v Crystal Palace this Sat (Sep 14th)
David Moyes will be hoping his Manchester United forwards find their shooting boots for Saturday’s home clash against Crystal Palace, broadcast live on BT Sport 1 (kick-off 12:45pm, September 14th).
The new Red Devils manager has seen his side fire two consecutive blanks in the Barclays Premier League, failing to score against Chelsea and Liverpool in their last two outings.
And with pressure already mounting on Sir Alex Ferguson’s replacement, Palace manager Ian Holloway will fancy the Eagles’ chances of causing an upset in the lunch-time kick-off.
The last time ‘Ollie’ visited Old Trafford, on the final day of 2010-11, his unfancied Blackpool side took a shock 2-1 lead, although United – already confirmed as champions – ran out 4-2 winners in the end.
With the likes of Dwight Gayle, Cameron Jerome and Marouane Chamakh to call upon, this Palace side has far more firepower than the Seasiders had that season.
And as such, BT Sport viewers could be in for an exciting game.
David Moyes may bring in Palace academy product Wilfried Zaha – a big-money signing from Selhurst Park in January – to freshen up his stuttering forward line.
And Belgian midfielder Marouane Fellaini could also make his Manchester United debut after joining from Everton on transfer deadline day.
Manchester United v Crystal Palace is just one of six games to be broadcast on BT Sport on Saturday September 14th.
