FT: Palace 0-0 Manchester United: A dreadful match, and a sign just how much work there is still to do for United. Three 0-0 draws in a row for United, who have lost something in attack. The gap at the top is now 14 points. Thanks for joining us. Goodbye.


Two minutes of added time here.


SAAAAVE! Big moment for the United goalkeeper Henderson, who has had nothing to do, as he stays big to block from Patrick van Aaholt. What a time to score that would have been!


Shaw cuts onto his right foot, but he cannot find the target.


Time for one chance for either side to snatch this here.


Shaw wins another corner down the left. The full-back has been United's best outlet.


Change for Palace here, with Jeff Schlupp on for Eze.


OVER! Greenwood makes space for the shot, but fires just over the top. As close as United have come all half.


CHANCE! Almost an immediate impact from James as he arrives to meet a cross, but he misses the header completely!

Change for United, at last, but it is not an overly adventurous one as Scott McTominay replaces Fred.


Shaw gets to the byline, but cannot get the cross into the middle.


Still no changes! Remarkable.


This game is there for the winning by someone. One bit of quality will do.


So poor from United. Not quiet sure why Solskjaer has not made any changes.


If Palace had someone who could put the ball in the back of the net they would be in front here. Dreadful defending from United, but Benteke misses his kick.


Change for Palace as Jairo Riedewald replaces James McCarthy.


United have not got going so far in this half.


Not missing much.


WIDE! Free-kick is into the wall, it rebounds for Andros Townsend, who volleys just wide.


Fred fouls Eze to concede a free-kick in a dangerous position.


Still such a slow pace to this game.


There's so much attacking talent in this United team. They have to produce more.


First effort on target from Palace but it is straight at Henderson from Ayew.


Couple of Palace corners into the middle cause problems. Benteke attempts the acrobatic volley but it is deflected over.


Maguire whips a cross into the middle but Guaita gathers easily.

KICK OFF! We are back under way here. No changes for either side.



  • End of 1st Half

HT: Palace 0-0 Manchester United. Not the greatest game in the world. United have had the better of the openings, but fell flat as the half wore on.


Great work from Wan-Bissaka to get the ball into the middle, but Ward does really well to get there before Cavani.


United aren't willing to take enough risks, beat a man, play on the front foot - two words Solskjaer used explicitly before the match.


Wan-Bissaka tries to run at his man and wins the corner. Better.


The quality in this game has really deteriorated. Neither team really seem that interested.


That final pass has eluded United in the last 20 minutes.


nited are still probing at Selhurst Park - but Palace are looking more and more comfortable as the half's gone on.


Better from Palace as they at least are enjoying some of the ball.


Ebere Eze has his first chance to run at the heart of the United backline, but Ayew cannot get on the end of Eze's pass.


Whipped cross into Cavani, but no chance he can keep that down.


Palace cannot get our of their half right now. They need some inspiration from somewhere.


Still no goal, though.


All United still. Cavani and Greenwood both looking very dangerous indeed.


Fernandes with the cross this time but it is just flicked clear.


Shaw with another great pass, this time into Fernandes, but he misses his kick as he arrives at the edge of the box.


United have turned the tables in this. Much better in attack, even if the passing further back remains a little sloppy.


WIDE! Great pass from Shaw into Rashford, who takes a wonderful first touch, but drags his strike just wide. Should have hit the target there.


CHANCE! Poachers work from Cavabi as he latches onto the loose ball, but he cannot keep his prod for goal on target.


SAVE! Fernandes with the lay off, Nemanja Matic lines up the strike, it takes a slight deflection, but Vicente Guaita throws himself to his left and makes a brilliant save.


Palace on top here as Aaron Wan-Bissaka does well to cut out a cross.


Sloppy from United as they give the ball away far too cheaply.


Shaw gets to his feet and limps it off. He knows all too well about his quickly his season can be curtailed.


Luke Shaw remains on the floor after Joel Ward follows through in a tackle.


A calmer than normal start fro United here. Just not conceding early on is all United fans ask for.

  • 1st Half

KICK OFF! We are up and running here.


So here we go! Big game for United to prove they are in a good place this evening. They have been a little sluggish of late, while Palace are looking to do the double over Solskjaer's side.


Ahead of kick off, catch up with all the latest transfer talk from across Europe as Lionel Messi considers his future.

Only four clubs in English top-flight history have had a longer unbeaten away run than Manchester United’s current run of 20 (W13 D7). The Red Devils haven’t lost any of their last seven league games in London (W4 D3), last having a longer run without defeat in the capital between December 2011-December 2013 (13 games).


Solskjaer explains De Gea's absence in greater detail.


Has Bruno lost his touch? Fernandes has 40 goal involvements in his 40 Premier League appearances so far (23 goals, 17 assists). However, three of the last four matches in which the Portuguese has failed to register a goal or assist have been in London (vs Chelsea, Arsenal and Fulham).


They look freezing.


HEAD TO HEAD: Palace have won two of their last three league meetings with Manchester United (L1), as many as they had in their previous 27 against them. The Eagles are looking to complete their first ever league double over the Red Devils. United have never lost in 11 Premier League away games against Crystal Palace, the most one side has played at another without ever losing in the competition (W8 D3).

Andros Townsend of Crystal Palace scores his sides first goal during the Premier League match between Manchester United and Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on September 19, 2020 in Manchester, England.

CAVANI AND HENDERSON START, STILL NO ZAHA: The big news for United is that Dean Henderson is given a start in goal, with David de Gea missing for "personal reasons". Edinson Cavani also makes his return to the starting XI as one of four changes from the weekend draw at Chelsea. It is still too soon for Wilfried Zaha to make his comeback from injury for Palace. James McCarthy comes in for Jairo Riedewald as their only change from the side held by Fulham.
