A beleaguered Crystal Palace are the visitors to Old Trafford this Saturday, for a Premier League fixture.

It`s a game the Manchester United faithful believe they should take the three points on offer from.

But what do the form and record books tell us to expect?

? When it comes to meetings between the two clubs, Manchester United definitely hold the upper hand, in 16 previous Premier League games, Manchester United have won 13 and drawn 3.

? The last time Crystal Palace beat Manchester United was in a League Cup quarter-final, at Old Trafford, in November 2011 when the Eagles won 2-1.

? The last time Crystal Palace won a league game at Old Trafford was back in December 1989 when Mark Bright scored a brace in a 2-1 win.

? A win for Manchester United will give the club 19 points and equal the club record for the most points from 7 games set in 1999 and again in 2011.

? The 3 previous Premier League games at Old Trafford this season have seen United win all 3, in doing so they`ve scored 10 goals and conceded 0.

? When it comes to clean sheets kept this season, Manchester United lead the way in the Premier League with 5.

? Romelu Lukaku has 6 goals from his first 6 Premier League games for Manchester United, a goal tomorrow will see him equal the record of 7 set by Andrew Cole.

? Crystal Palace are the first side in the history of the Premier League to not score a goal in their first 6 games and lose the lot as well.

? The last goal scored by Crystal Palace, in the Premier League, was back on 14 May when Patrick van Aanholt scored against Hull City in a 4-0 win.
