Crystal Palace are yet to record a victory in 2023, with struggling Chelsea the latest team to take three points from the Eagles. A second-half header from Kai Havertz was enough to secure the win for Graham Potter's side on Sunday and take some pressure off the ex-Brighton boss, but Patrick Vieira said afterwards that he didn't believe Palace deserved to lose the game. With a visit from high-flying Newcastle to come at the weekend, though, the Frenchman could be in for a tough week.

There are four changes to the Palace starting line-up tonight. Chris Richards makes his first start for the club, while Will Hughes, Jean-Philippe Mateta and Odsonne Édouard also come in. Joachim Andersen misses out after being injured against Chelsea, while Jeffrey Schlupp, Ebere Eze and Jordan Ayew drop to the bench.

Manchester United moved to within a point of Manchester City when they notched up a controversial win over the Sky Blues on Saturday. Marcus Rashford was clearly interfering with play from an offside position for Bruno Fernandes' equaliser, but because the England striker didn't touch the ball the officials allowed the goal to stand. Rashford then scored the winner himself just four minutes later. Erik ten Hag's side have now won 13 of their last 14 games in all competitions and will surely be confident of extending that run at Selhurst tonight.

Erik ten Hag makes three changes to his side this evening, with new signing Wout Weghorst making his debut in place of the injured Anthony Martial. Lisandro Martinez and Antony also come in at the expense of Tyrell Malacia and Fred. 

The big match kicks off at 8pm GMT today, Wednesday 18th January, at Selhurst Park. Follow our guide on how to watch a Crystal Palace vs Manchester United live stream from wherever you are in the world.
