CRYSTAL PALACE 0-0 MAN UTD 59. Milivojevic takes charge of the set-piece, but his attempted curler is cut out by his compatriot in the wall.

GOOD EVENING FROM SELHURST PARK Welcome to SunSport’s live coverage of Crystal Palace versus Manchester United in the Premier League. There was drama aplenty when these two last met with Crystal Palace running out 3-1 winners at Old Trafford on a barmy VAR-heavy afternoon in September. However, the sides enjoyed far less excitement this weekend just passed as a pair of uninspiring 0-0 draws with Fulham and Chelsea respectively had TV viewers reaching for the remote. The absence of Wilfried Zaha has been pivotal to Palace’s recent shot-shy form. The forward again misses out this evening despite his return to training so will be unable to add to the double he hit against his former club earlier in the campaign.

He wanted to see the new, young players and speak to them to learn who they are and what they are doing on the pitch. “He liked too much to see football. He lives for football. “He wants to train too much, he wants to train

RISHI Sunak has set out his Budget 2021 plan to help struggling families and keep British businesses afloat. The Chancellor revealed extra help for 600,000 self employed people with grants of up to £7,500 and said furlough is to be extended until September. He also revealed that hundreds of thousands of self-employed Brits, many of whom became self-employed in 2019-20, can now claim direct cash grants under the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme. Previously they could only claim if they had filled in a recent tax return, which meant millions were shut out.
