Man United vs Crystal Palace live score, result, updates, highlights, from Premier League

OLD TRAFFORD, MANCHESTER — Manchester United host Crystal Palace for the second time in a week as they seek another Premier League victory.

The Red Devils beat the Eagles 3-0 on Tuesday in the Carabao Cup to give themselves a much-needed boost following a difficult run of results that included a home loss to Brighton & Hove Albion that ended their long unbeaten stretch in league play at Old Trafford.

Erik ten Hag is still attempting to juggle a serious injury crisis, but the manner of his team’s performance in midweek, plus the morale boost of beating Burnley 1-0 away last Saturday, will give him confidence that they can get the job done.

Palace, meanwhile, have won just one of their past five league matches and will certainly need to produce an improved performance if they are to claim a surprise result here.

The Sporting News is following the Man United vs. Crystal Palace match live and providing score updates, commentary and highlights as they happen.

Man United vs Crystal Palace live updates, highlights, commentary

Second half: Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace

No changes for either team at the break.

Halftime: Man United 0-1 Crystal Palace

The last action of the half sees Johnstone catch a straight Fernandes delivery without any red shirt close to him. Groans from the home fans greeted the halftime whistle. United will have to improve their attacking play if they are to get back into this — it’s been too easy for Palace to defend this lead.

45th min: United continue to press as we enter first-half injury time, but the final ball has been poor too often today. Palace have defended well, but they’ve not exactly been stretched to breaking point.

40th min: Casemiro, United’s top scorer this season, heads over from Bruno Fernandes’ corner. Palace are still quite comfortable in defending this lead.

38th min: United subs have been warming up in earnest on the touchline. You wonder if Erik ten Hag will change things at halftime — he can’t be pleased with what he’s seen so far.

36th min: Rashford is now receiving treatment after being caught on the edge of the United box. It looked like Abdoulaye Doucoure connected with his right foot as he stretched for the ball. He’s up and walking, but he doesn’t look too happy.

33rd min: Rashford has had plenty of the ball in the attacking third, but he’s been so wasteful with his end product. This time, he cuts into the box but plays a short pass straight to a white shirt.

27th min: United come close to a quick equaliser as Casemiro rifles just wide, but the Red Devils have found it difficult to create anything clear-cut so far.

25th min: GOAL! What a strike from Joachim Andersen! Eze swings in a free-kick from the right, it bounces towards Andersen on the corner of the six-yard box, and he hits a stunning first-time half-volley that flies past Andre Onana and into the top corner! A stunning goal from an unlikely source!

Watch in USA:

Australia:

23rd min: United’s attack breaks down and Palace counter through the middle. Jeffrey Schlupp manages to run between Victor Lindelof and Diogo Dalot, but the ball seems to get stuck under his feet, and Dalot recovers to win it back. Palace are doing really well to press the home side into mistakes.

19th min: There’s just been a rousing rendition of “Stand up if you hate Glazers”. On the pitch, it’s not quite as lively. Hojlund managed to force a mistake but he chose to shoot rather than pass 20 yards out, and the shot was nowhere near the goal.

12th min: OFF THE LINE! Rasmus Hojlund runs onto Rashford’s ball over the top and gets there ahead of Sam Johnstone, lobbing the ball over the Palace keeper. However, Tyrick Mitchell covers the ground and stops the ball from going in (it was actually a few yards from the line).

11th min: Chance for Palace! United only partially clear a free-kick, the ball is crossed back in from the left, and Marc Guehi nods wide after getting in between Casemiro and Raphael Varane. Casemiro was booked for the challenge that led to that set-piece.

8th min: Jordan Ayew went in a little late on Mount, who then jogged after him and gave the Palace man a nudge. He’s just made a strong, but fair, sliding tackle on Ayew to prevent a clearance. We might have a little battle building down the United left wing.

6th min: United have had the ball in these early minutes but haven’t created anything yet. Marcus Rashford just had his first chance to dribble in the box from Mount’s clever pass, but he couldn’t work any space.

2nd min: Amrabat is starting at left-back, as he did to great effect during the week. It looks like a 4-2-3-1 shape, although the midfield seems to have a lot of freedom, Mason Mount in particular.

Kickoff

We’re underway in the Manchester drizzle.

15 mins to KO: The teams have just gone in from their “warm-up” (I use the term loosely — the weather is not pleasant here today). We’ll soon see exactly how United will shape up.

30 mins to KO: United lost their last league game at Old Trafford, going down 3-1 to Brighton and Hove Albion — a result that ended an unbeaten home streak in the top flight stretching back more than a year. Remarkably, Brighton lost 6-1 to Aston Villa in today’s early kickoff.

Team news

United make four changes to the Carabao Cup team from Tuesday, all of which were pretty much expected: Victor Lindelof, Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford and Rasmus Hojlund come in for Harry Maguire, Hannibal Mejbri, Alejandro Garnacho and Anthony Martial, who all drop to the bench. It looks like Sofyan Amrabat will line up as a makeshift full-back again, but the midfield is harder to predict: Mason Mount could sit deeper alongside Casemiro, or we might see a diamond formation.

Palace make six changes from the cup defeat, reverting to 10 of the 11 who started against Fulham in their last league game. The only change from that lineup is in attack, where Jean-Philippe Mateta starts in place of the injured Odsonne Edouard.

1 hour 30 mins to KO: Palace have only beaten United four times in all competitions since November 1991, but three of those victories have come in the past four years. In August 2019, Patrick van Aanholt struck a 90th-minute winner at Old Trafford, just after the Red Devils had equalised through Dan James.

1 hour 45 mins to KO: United have a left-back crisis going into this game: Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia are still out, and loan signing Sergio Reguilon has now suffered an injury. Sofyan Amrabat made his home debut as a makeshift full-back in the cup game this week and Erik ten Hag would seem to have no issue fielding him there again.

In his pre-match programme notes, he wrote: “It didn’t take long for Sofyan to show everyone what he is all about. He would not see himself as a left-back, but he performed well in the role and showed complete commitment. He gave everything he had for the team, which is why we brought him in and precisely the kind of professionalism we demand.”

2 hours to KO: United’s Carabao Cup win this week was a real boost for Erik ten Hag as it felt, for the first time this season, like a game that they controlled from start to finish. Will things be any trickier today?

Man United vs Crystal Palace lineups, team news

The injuries have continued to pile up for United in recent days with Ten Hag confirming defensive pair Lisandro Martinez and Sergio Reguilon are both set for an period on the sidelines. Reguilon’s injury is described as minor, but Martinez has aggravated the foot problem suffered in April and could be out until December.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia are also missing from his defensive plans, so Sofyan Amrabat looks to be starting right-back again, as he did in the EFL Cup. Jadon Sancho is still not included in the squad, and Antony will not be available until next week, despite returning to training. Scott McTominay and Christian Eriksen are available again and on the bench.

Man United lineup (4-2-3-1, right to left): Onana (GK) — Amrabat, Varane, Lindelof, Dalot — Mount, Casemiro — Pellistri, Fernandes, Rashford — Hojlund

Subs: Bayindir (GK), Maguire, Martial, Eriksen, Garnacho, Van de Beek, Evans, McTominay, Hannibal

Palace’s options are also restricted by injuries, with Hodgson recalling Joel Ward, Marc Guehi, Joachim Anderson and Eberechi Eze after the Carabao Cup loss. Jean-Philippe Mateta starts in place of the injured Odsonne Edouard.

Crystal Palace projected lineup (4-2-3-1, right to left): Johnstone (GK) — Ward, Guehi, Anderson, Mitchell — Doucoure, Hughes — J. Ayew, Schlupp, Eze — Mateta
