Charlie Nicholas

Former Arsenal star, Charlie Nicholas, has predicted Manchester United to beat Crystal Palace 2-1 when both sides clash in tonight's Premier League fixture at Selhurst Park.

Nicholas also backed Sheffield United to defeat Leicester City 2-1 at the King Power Stadium.

Providing his predictions, Nicholas told Sky Sports: "United started brilliantly after the break, but they were all games they were expected to win as they pushed on for a Champions League place.

"They do need to get back to winning ways, and while Palace will cause them problems, with the emphasis on this being a must-win for Man United, I think they will get there. Crystal Palace 1, Man United 2."

On the Leicester vs Sheffield clash, Nicholas said: "Sheffield United are a beast of a team, and they are taking everyone on.

"They have great energy and bombing full-backs. They have never been to Europe in their history, and this would be amazing for Chris Wilder. If fairness counted, the Blades deserve to get a place in Europe.

"It has to be an advantage for Sheffield United right now. They are the team going after it. Leicester are under scrutiny, and I fear they will feel the pressure here. Leicester City 1, Sheffield 2."

The kick-off time for Leicester vs Sheffield is 6 pm, while that of Crystal Palace vs Man United is 8:15 pm.
