Palace at the Theatre of Dreams

Manchester United will make a complete change to the side from the team that could only manage a draw against Newcastle. They will play their youngsters, the likes of Macheda, Ryan Morrison and Paul Pogba.

They face a Palace side that have not won at Old Trafford since 1989. This is the Eagles' most successful League Cup run in nine seasons. They face Derby in the league on Friday and they have a realistic chance of making the Championship play-offs this season. So, they will most likely not be playing their first team.

They were tipped up by some pundits as one of the favourites for relegation. However, they have some fantastic youth players. Palace fans will be hoping that they are not overwhelmed at Old Trafford.

The Man United win is 1/4, the draw is 9/2 and the away win is 11/1. Crystal Palace have their very own Lionel Messi in Wilfried Zaha, he is not quite in the same league but he has been coveted by massive clubs across Europe.

Zaha has begun the season in stunning form, he is 6/1 to score anytime and Sir Alex will be surely having one eye on him.

Manchester United will be calling upon a few senior players and one man looking to impress is Berbatov. The Match Winner is for him to net two or more goals at our fantastic price of 4/1, enhanced from 11/4.

He has played a minor role all season and he will be looking to find the back of the net and try and get back into the manager's thinking.  He is 11/4 to grab the first goal and he may take the set pieces.

Another United player who is in and out of Sir Alex's plans is Park Ji Sung. He is favoured in all the Cup competitions and he has an eye for the spectacular. He is not afraid to shoot from distance and he is 7/4 to score anytime and 6/1 to grab the first.

If you fancy United to take Palace apart you can back them to win half time/ full time at 4/6, it is not a shrewd punt, the team will have a young average age and there are always upsets in the cup. Dougie Freedman is a Palace legend and with Championship survival already looking guaranteed, he will want the lads to give a good account at the Theatre of Dreams.

Palace are 13/2 to win draw no bet and they are 5/2 double chance with the draw. Under 2.5 goals is 6/4 and that looks a big price, it is not United's first team and Palace know that if they can hold on for 120 minutes, they have a big shout at winning penalties.
