Manchester United vs Crystal Palace LIVE!

Manchester United slumped to their fourth defeat of the Premier League season as an early Joachim Anderson strike earned Crystal Palace a 1-0 win at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Having tasted defeat in their previous home league match, against Brighton, the subpar hosts again found themselves behind in the 25th minute as Anderson arrowed into the top corner.

With plenty of time to find a leveller on home turf, clear-cut chances remained few and far between in the Manchester rain, with Palace goalkeeper Sam Johnstone enjoying a quiet afternoon.

Mason Mount missed United's clearest opening in the second half, with Palace seeing out a victory that moved the visitors up to ninth in the standings, one place above the 20-time top-flight champions.

Man City fall to defeat at Wolves as Arsenal, Newcastle and Luton all bag big wins.

The best win of Crystal Palace’s season so far

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | FULL TIME!

16:54 , Marc Mayo


What a win for Palace!

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 90+4 mins

16:53 , Marc Mayo

Harry Maguire pops out on the left but the ball ends up in touch! Palace throw with barely any time left.

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 90+3 mins

16:52 , Marc Mayo

Truly a frantic finish at Old Trafford as long balls are howitzer’d into the Palace box, and the visitors can’t break out for long spells.

Sofyan Amrabat is next to cross. Badly.

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 90+2 mins

16:51 , Marc Mayo


Diogo Dalot’s cross bounces up and somehow evades the net before a shot pings off a Palace defender and out. Handball appeals fall on deaf ears.

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 90 mins

16:50 , Marc Mayo

It’s a Crystal Palace corner after Jordan Ayew does well. He’s been very decent today.

Only four minutes stoppage time to come!

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 89 mins

16:49 , Marc Mayo

Jordan Ayew wins a free-kick off the increasingly agitated Sofyan Amrabat after Palace survive another cross from deep.

They’re heading to United’s corner flag...

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 87 mins

16:47 , Marc Mayo

Speaking of players playing out of position, Casemiro never played this far forward for Real Madrid. He’s been far too involved in attacks and it simply isn’t his game.

Erik ten Hag looks to remedy the situation with Raphael Varane being replaced by Harry Maguire. Donny van de Beek is also on, for Victor Lindelof. So that’s both centre-backs off.

Chris Richards on for Eberechi Eze as Palace also change it up.

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 85 mins

16:45 , Marc Mayo

Anthony Martial has taken up Marcus Rashford’s spot on the left flank, meaning Alejandro Garnacho is floating nearby and Bruno Fernandes shoved out to the right flank.

Not sure why United have moved their most creative player away from the central creative position but there we go.

Rasmus Hojlund is still up top amd tumbles under pressure from a ball in. No penalty.

Casemiro is next to pop up and he floats a poor cross into touch.

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 83 mins

16:42 , Marc Mayo

A brilliant block from Joachim Andersen denies Alejandro Garnacho’s attempt from the edge of the box.

United want to pen in Palace but the visiting defence has thrown their bodies on the line at every cross and shot today. They’re more than worthy of a clean sheet, if they can survive the next ten or so minutes...

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 80 mins

16:39 , Marc Mayo

Sofyan Amrabat has not impressed much at left-back this half and he gets booked for losing possession before dragging Jordan Ayew down just outside his box.

A good free-kick spot, this. Eberechi Eze clips it in... goal kick.

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 78 mins

16:37 , Marc Mayo

That’s the end of Mason Mount’s day in fact, as Christian Eriksen replaces him.

Marcus Rashford is also off! Anthony Martial his chosen replacement. Well, then.

Palace also swap Jeffrey Schlupp out for Jairo Riedewald.

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 77 mins

16:36 , Marc Mayo

Yellow card for Mason Mount for a late one on Joachim Andersen after over running the ball in Palace’s box.

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 76 mins

16:35 , Marc Mayo

Eberechi Eze is the next player who should really do better after being released by Jordan Ayew’s nifty work. Just 18 yards out and with United defenders retreating, he tamely pokes a shot wide.

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 74 mins

16:33 , Marc Mayo


Again, how has that not gone in?! Good work from Alejandro Garnacho down the left and a low cross takes not one but TWO deflections before trickling out for a corner.

How’s your luck, Eagles?

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 70 mins

16:30 , Marc Mayo


Mason Mount has to score! He meets Diogo Dalot’s cross unmarked at the near post and throws far too much behind it, heading a yard over when only five out.

Around the grounds

16:29 , Marc Mayo

Man City have levelled up at Wolves through a Julian Alvarez free-kick... and fallen straight back behind again!

Hwang Hee-chan with the goal there while Arsenal have a third at Bournemouth.

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 65 mins

16:24 , Marc Mayo


Jeffrey Schlupp flicks on the corner and it loops just over the crossbar. What a time it would be for Palace to land a suckerpunch second.

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 63 mins

16:23 , Marc Mayo

Will Hughes stings Andre Onana’s palms with Palace’s first proper attack of the half. It was straight at him, after Raphael Varane gave the ball away, but the keeper somehow made it look difficult.

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 62 mins

16:21 , Marc Mayo

Alejandro Garnacho enters the fray for the quiet Facundo Pellistri.

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 60 mins

16:19 , Marc Mayo

United are desperate for a penalty!

A deep cross looks for Marcus Rashford deep on the left channel and Joel Ward turns the ball out for a corner... it did clip his hand but he was facing the other way and it was down by his side.

The referee Chris Kavanagh and VAR are both unmoved.

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 57 mins

16:16 , Marc Mayo


The temperature is rising at Old Trafford! Some neat play around the penalty spot sees Palace throw bodies at the ball, before Bruno Fernandes takes aim with a fierce hit that Sam Johnstone does well to parry.

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 55 mins

16:14 , Marc Mayo

Casemiro pops up in the box to try and convert Raphael Varane’s cross with a half-bicycle kick. Good luck with that.

It goes wide - and he was probably offside anyway.

You feel United will have to come up with far better plans than swinging it in from deep...

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 52 mins

16:11 , Marc Mayo

Jordan Ayew breaks in behind Bruno Fernandes down the right and is stopped by a magnificent tackle by the Portuguese midfielder.

It had to be really, he really lunged in right on the 18-yard line and somehow won a goal kick!

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 50 mins

16:08 , Marc Mayo

Diogo Dalot wins a corner on the right side yet Bruno Fernandes’ cross is cleared. Palace have dealt pretty well from balls into their box today and force the ball all the way back to Andre Onana.

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 47 mins

16:07 , Marc Mayo

Mason Mount finally links up with Marcus Rashford to overlap on the left but the ball is cleared.

United, facing away from the Stretford End in this half, will still feel that just an equaliser is not enough from today’s game.

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | Kick-off!

16:04 , Marc Mayo

The second half begins in the Manchester rain!

No changes at the break from either team.


Second-half coming up!

16:03 , Marc Mayo

Right then, break almost over. Will Erik ten Hag go down to his bench and shake things up after the break?

Around the grounds

15:58 , Marc Mayo

Arsenal, Newcastle and Luton among the teams leading at the break in a bumper set of 3pm kick-offs.

Man City are still behind at Wolves...

Much to ponder for Erik ten Hag

15:55 , Marc Mayo

Man United have held vast amounts of possession but lack the killer touch in front of goal, while looking capable of errors in defence.

Rasmus Hojlund has come closest with a shot off the line moments after the goal yet the hosts look a bit disjointed.

All good so far for the Eagles

15:52 , Marc Mayo

Crystal Palace started slowly and weren’t really in the game at all until Marc Guehi flashed a header wide after 11 minutes.

Even then, Joachim Andersen’s beauty of a volley halfway through the half was a bit of a surprise given the run of play.

The Eagles have stepped up since the goal and are good value for this lead.

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | Half time!

15:49 , Marc Mayo

A poor ball in from Bruno Fernandes is easily claimed and that’s the break!

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 45+3 mins

15:49 , Marc Mayo

Another United attack falls down when Mount drops deep, finds space and then Casemiro pops up further forward and gives it away. Surely that should be the other way round?

One final chance to load the box as Joel Ward fouls Marcus Rashford. A really poor late foot up, thigh height. Booking.

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 45 mins

15:46 , Marc Mayo

Now would be a good time for the Red Devils to score...

But a sloppy push from Sofyan Amrabat hands Jordan Ayew a foul in the Palace half and the visitors begin to run the clock down.

Three minutes go up on the board.

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 44 mins

15:45 , Marc Mayo

Really bad pass from Casemiro breaks down a sweeping move through the middle. Will Hughes, who’s enjoyed a good game, clips clear.

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 41 mins

15:42 , Marc Mayo

Good link-up play between Bruno Fernandes and Rasmus Hojlund, the latter having struggled to really get into the game.

Fernandes slides in a silky through ball that spots the run of Facundo Pellistri brilliantly, but it’s just overhit. Goal kick.

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 40 mins

15:41 , Marc Mayo

Half chance for Casemiro at the near post from Bruno Fernandes’ out-swinging corner.

Difficult to divert that one goalwards with such pace on the ball, it pings off his forehead and off-target.

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 37 mins

15:38 , Marc Mayo

Crystal Palace are controlling possession for the first time this game, just as United need to rally for a shot at levelling up before the break.

Instead, the visitors win a corner and all the noise is coming off the away end.

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 35 mins

15:37 , Marc Mayo

Marcus Rashford is down again here after being clipped by a pretty chunky Cheick Doucoure tackle as United cleared a corner.

An impact injury rather than a more troublesome twist.

The hosts may well ask whether VAR wants to check those studs - it was a bit high but with no momentum behind his kick. More of a jab at the ball.

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 32 mins

15:32 , Marc Mayo

Vital work from Raphael Varane to slide in on Jean-Philippe Mateta in the box, after a good through ball by Eberechi Eze.

You feel Palace really need a second goal here, and that they can get one...

Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | 30 mins

15:30 , Marc Mayo

United have responded with a bit more energy, Marcus Rashford flashing a haywire volley-cross well away from the goal. Casemiro has also gone close from range.

It could be all hands on deck for a long time in the Eagles box!

GGGOOOOAAALLLL!!!! Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace | Andersen, 26'

15:26 , Marc Mayo


Palace have picked up their game in recent minutes and Eberechi Eze swings in a free-kick, it beats everybody until Andersen drops deep to pick it up...

He slams a first-time volley into the top corner! WOW!

Around the grounds

15:24 , Marc Mayo

Early leads for Arsenal and Newcastle, against Bournemouth and Burnley respectively.

Man City are behind, though, at Wolves!

Man United 0-0 Crystal Palace | 22 mins

15:23 , Marc Mayo

Not clicking for Palace in attack, they’ve struggled to string more than two or three passes together in a bid to break out their half.

Fortunately for the Eagles, most of United’s work is coming in the middle third of the pitch.

Man United 0-0 Crystal Palace | 20 mins

15:20 , Marc Mayo

A break in play after Marcus Rashford hits the deck, gingerly getting back to his feet but playing on.

With Galatasaray in midweek, the last thing United need is another missing wide player!

Man United 0-0 Crystal Palace | 17 mins

15:18 , Marc Mayo

The Red Devils have stepped up a gear since those chances and sense an opener around the same time they broke the deadlock in midweek.

Having Sofyan Amrabat drift inwards has, in fact, given them more width with Mason Mount drifting wide and Diogo Dalot pushing up.

Man United 0-0 Crystal Palace | 14 mins

15:15 , Marc Mayo

Marcus Rashford is next to threaten with a twisty-turny run into the box that fails to produce a yard of space to shoot into, instead he settles for a corner.

Raphael Varane rises highest and heads wide.

Man United 0-0 Crystal Palace | 12 mins

15:13 , Marc Mayo


Tyrick Mitchell denies Rasmus Hojlund! United get in behind and the young striker pokes the ball around the goalkeeper, but Mitchell flies back to clear.

Man United 0-0 Crystal Palace | 11 mins

15:12 , Marc Mayo


Marc Guehi almost makes it 1-0! The free-kick is recycled in with a fierce whipped delivery flicked on by the defender... and wide of the post.

Man United 0-0 Crystal Palace | 10 mins

15:11 , Marc Mayo

Casemiro dives in with a trademark lunge that takes out Jordan Ayew and gets nothing of the ball, conceding a foul United are unhappy about.

That’s because Ayew won the ball off Sofyan Amrabat with a borderline foul-worthy challenge.

In any case, Casemiro is booked.

Man United 0-0 Crystal Palace | 8 mins

15:09 , Marc Mayo

Some unhappy Palace players and fans as Sofyan Amrabat gets away with trying to handle the ball while going down at one end, then moments later he gets away with a rough challenge on Eberechi Eze at the other.

Sofyan Amrabat is again drifting out from the left-back spot towards central midfield, with Mason Mount heading leftwards when United have the ball and Victor Lindelof spreading out too.

Very Mikel Arteta.

Man United 0-0 Crystal Palace | 2 mins

15:04 , Marc Mayo

Nice and easy for United in the early knockings with Palace happy not to press, until a stray pass lands plum at Eberechi Eze in the United half.

Palace can’t do anything with it and have to act quickly to shut down Marcus Rashford’s break.

Just five minutes until we get underway with the teams about to step out at Old Trafford!

Time for Mason Mount to step up?

14:51 , Marc Mayo

It has been a fairly underwhelming start to life at Old Trafford for Mason Mount, who has had to sit out a number of weeks with an injury.

This will be his first league start since the August defeat at Tottenham.

A busy one in the Premier League today

14:48 , Marc Mayo

Crystal Palace up against it today

14:45 , Marc Mayo

Some may say that the first result means nothing when you play an opponent twice in the same week.

However, particularly against a club so desperate for confidence as Man United, Palace’s poor display in the Carabao Cup has already set them on the back foot for today’s league rematch.

A victory today is arguably more important and a few changes to both line-ups have been made, so Roy Hodgson will hope to rejuvanate his team for kick-off in 15 minutes’ time.

Antony to attend today’s game

14:41 , Marc Mayo

MEN are reporting that absent winger Antony will be at Old Trafford to watch Man United vs Crystal Palace.

After returning from Brazil amid allegations surrounding his personal life, the Brazilian trained at Carrington this morning.

It remains to be seen when he’ll be reintegrated into the United line-up.

Dimitar Berbatov has predicted a fairly easy afternoon for his old club.

“No surprises here - they've just played each other, but United need to get the momentum going and win again,” he told Betfair.

“Otherwise, they'll lose it and fail to climb the table. It's a must-win, and they've already shown they can beat Palace.

“I'll go with United to win. Man United 2-1 Crystal Palace.”

It’s been fairly even in recent years, with three United wins to Palace’s two and a pair of draws.

Manchester United wins: 41

As expected from Crystal Palace

14:14 , Marc Mayo

Jean-Philippe Mateta leads the line in Odsonne Edouard’s absence with a few youngsters on the bench.

Sofyan Amrabat gets the nod

14:10 , Marc Mayo

With Sergio Reguilon, Lisandro Martinez, Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka out, Manchester United have gone again with Sofyan Amrabat at left-back.

Facundo Pellistri also gets the nod in attack, ahead of Alejandro Garnacho.

Mason Mount is fit to start in midfield with Victor Lindelof beating Harry Maguire to the call in defence.

Crystal Palace XI: Johnstone; Ward, Guehi, Andersen, Mitchell; Doucoure, Hughes; Ayew, Eze, Schlupp; Mateta

Phil Jones is working towards his coaching badges and has started a sporting director course as the former Manchester United defender begins a “new journey”.

Crystal Palace injury woes mount as Dean Henderson scan brings more bad news

13:15 , Jonathan Gorrie

Roy Hodgson has offered a pessimistic update on Dean Henderson’s injury after the Crystal Palace goalkeeper underwent a scan.

The England international moved from Manchester United to Selhurst Park in a £20million deal this summer, but was forced off early with a muscle injury while making his debut for the Eagles against his former club in Tuesday’s 3-0 Carabao Cup defeat at Old Trafford.

Palace return to the same ground on Saturday to face United in the Premier League. But while Hodgson can call on midfielder Jairo Riedewald after his injury proved to only be cramp, goalkeeper Henderson is set for a spell on the sidelines.

“He’s had a scan”, Hodgson said. “The initial scan wasn’t very positive, I’m sorry to say. He has another scan in a week’s time and maybe we’ll be lucky in that it will show somewhat less damage than the first one, but it didn’t look like good news.”

Erik ten Hag explains Mason Mount return plan after Manchester United hit by double fitness blow

13:09 , Jonathan Gorrie

Mason Mount earned high praise from Erik ten Hag after making his injury return for Manchester United in the Carabao Cup win over Crystal Palace.

The Dutch manager handed Mount 45 minutes in the 3-0 win at Old Trafford before a pre-planned substituton at half time.

Roy Hodgson admits Crystal Palace saw two transfers collapse during summer window

12:44 , Jonathan Gorrie

Crystal Palace had two signings fall through in the final few days of the transfer window.

Palace signed Matheus Franca, Jefferson Lerma, Dean Henderson and Rob Holding in the summer, but Roy Hodgson has revealed two more players were “pretty much assured” to join the Eagles, before both moves broke down.

Addressing the limited size of his squad, Hodgson said: “That was unlucky, because [chairman] Steve Parish and [sporting director] Dougie Freedman worked very hard in that last week going to the end of the transfer window on two players that they and we thought were pretty much assured to be able to come to us.

Sofyan Amrabat impressed at left-back earlier in the week but Sergio Reguilon will surely start as a natural option there, after he was cup-tied. Lisandro Martinez is now injured, while Antony is not expected to play despite returning to training.

Elsewhere, Mason Mount is fit despite coming off at half-time, while Christian Eriksen and Scott McTominay could feature after illness.
