Crystal Palace 1-3 Manchester United

Romelu Lukaku scored twice as injury-stricken Manchester United win comfortably against Premier League Crystal Palace.

The Red Devils played with a highly depleted squad with eight of their first-team players absent, but they extended their unbeaten league run under interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to 14 games.

Romelu Lukaku scored the opener 33 minutes after Luke beat several players before laying it off to the Belgium striker who slot in from the edge of the box.

Lukaku doubled United’s lead early second half after he brilliantly spun around to convert Victor Lindelof’s header from a tight angle.

The goal moved him into the top 20 all-time leading Premier League goalscorers. He is now joint-20th with Dion Dublin (111) is 20th.

Crystal Palace responded 66th minute after Joel Ward‘s diving header from close range.

Ashley Young gave United a late third goal as they stayed fifth in the table, a point behind Arsenal who thrashed Bournemouth 5-1.
