Manchester United are holding onto 2nd place in the Premier League right now, but they face a strong challenge from those below them and it will be a battle to keep it as the season draws to a close. Crystal Palace started terribly this season, but they did improve and looked a much better team, however they have now fallen back after a poor run. While Palace are one place outside of the relegation zone, they are only there on goal difference in what is sure to be a hugely exciting and tight relegation battle for those involved.
Manchester United started the season very well, something which saw their Premiership winning odds slashed. However, the one problem they have had in recent weeks has been consistency. They have played well in parts, but struggled to string together enough good performances to give them a winning streak.
The league campaign started terribly for Crystal Palace, but picked up going into the Christmas period. However, since then they have gone back to being poor, and they are in great danger of being relegated this season unless they improve. They have shown that they possess the ability within their squad to get out of this trouble, but now is the time they need to dig deep and perform.
