Man Utd vs Crystal Palace

Is this the biggest mismatch in recent years? One team is scoring and winning for fun, while the other can't even put one into the net. It can't get any worse for Crystal Palace, who will be missing ace striker Christian Benteke. He's out for six weeks with an injury. Over at the Man Utd camp, Paul Pogba is the biggest name missing. Manager Jose Mourinho says the Frenchman could be out for quite some time. Man Utd have won 10 consecutive home top-flight matches against Palace, conceding only two goals in that time and both of those came in the same match. Let it be noted that the Red Devils have won three of their six league matches by a 4-0 scoreline: that was against West Ham, Swansea and Everton.


Match Stats:

  • Man Utd 4-0 Crystal Palace
  • Shots: 13-7
  • Possession: 63%-37%
  • Corner kicks: 6-5

Marouane Felliani scored twice as Manchester United continued their impressive run of form with a 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace at Old Trafford.

Juan Mata got United off to a great start, marking his 200th Premier League appearance in the third minute with a goal from Marcus Rashford's cross.

Fellaini's first strike came on 35 minutes, as he prodded home Ashley Young's cross at the far post, and he got his second just after the break, heading a Rashford free-kick past Wayne Hennessey.

Romelu Lukaku added a fourth for United in the closing stages, equalling Andy Cole's record of seven goals in his first seven league matches for the club.

The result took United to the top of the Premier League table with 19 points, before Manchester City overtook them, while Crystal Palace stay rooted at the bottom with zero points and no goals.
