Crystal Palace made history after grabbing their first point against United since 1989 in a goalless draw at Old Trafford. This is the sixth time United have failed to win at Old Trafford this season.

Manchester United started the match at a great tempo but Crystal Palace look dangerous from counter attack and missed great chance as  Patrick van Aanholt failed to finish a pass from Wilfried Zaha.

Both side had a goal ruled as offside – a header by Cheikhou Kouyate and a finish from Romelu Lukaku.

Jesse Lingard’s on-target strike was saved by Wayne Hennessey, he also denied a late attempt by Lukaku.

Crystal Palace were without a win in their previous seven league games and just above the relegation zone, but created several chances to secure a first league point at the venue since 1989.
