What We Learned From Manchester United's Four-Goal Victory Over Crystal Palace

What We Learned From Manchester United's Four-Goal Victory Over Crystal Palace”

While the Manchester United have never lost their Premier League matches against to the Crystal Palace.

The Eagles lost their seventh consecutive Premier League game on Saturday as they succumbed to a 4-0 defeat at Manchester United.

Jose Mourinho says that Manchester United's 4-0 win over Crystal Palace was a bigger scoreline than their performance deserved.

Mourinho described it as a "tricky run" in his programme notes ahead of the game, the inference being that his team had to capitalise on a home game against the Premier League's bottom club.

Palace have now gone seven league games without a goal.

He'll track back to put in a tackle that'll leave the victim wobbling but he'll also push forward to punish a defender at the far post, much to Manchester United fans' delight. This side is yet to have scored a goal all season and it is looking like they are heading for relegation unless they can pull something unbelievable out of the bag very soon.

"There could be more pain ahead but we won't be phased as we work on our task that we have ahead of us as a group".

It took less than four minutes of the second half before United hammered the nail into Palace's coffin, Fellaini sealing his brace by virtue of being the only man fearless enough to throw himself at Rashford's venomous free-kick.

Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini scored before halftime and when Fellaini headed in his second just after the interval, the points were made even more secure. In his five years in the Premier League before this season, Benteke had scored on 30 of 72 non-penalty clear chances.

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson is confident he has seen enough from his beleaguered side to suggest their fortunes will soon improve. In six games, the Eagles have conceded 13 goals and scored zero.

United's lead goalscorer Lukaku looked like he was having an off day.

Two close-range finishes from two fine crosses underlined the importance of Fellaini's aerial threat in the box and he is clearly going to be a significant figure in United's season.

Attack: Anthony Martial staked his claim for a regular starting spot with another impressive display last night that saw him score one and set-up two others against Moscow.
