FULL TIME: Crystal Palace 4 – 0 Manchester United

Manchester United were completely outclassed and humiliated as they suffered a 4-0 defeat at Crystal Palace on Monday night.

A Michael Olise double and goals from Jean-Philippe Mateta and Tyrick Mitchell helped Palace to a famous evening at Selhurst Park as they achieved a Premier League double over Erik ten Hag’s side. United face an uphill task in their bid to play European football next season.

Crystal Palace thrashed Manchester United 4-0 to heap more pressure on the beleaguered Erik ten Hag and underline the progress they have made under new manager Oliver Glasner.

Incisive first-half goals from Michael Olise and Jean-Philippe Mateta set the Eagles on their way, taking advantage of a makeshift United defence which included Casemiro at centre-back, and things only got worse for the visitors after the break.

Palace have now done the league double over the Red Devils for the very first time and in the process moved Ten Hag’s team’s goal difference into negative figures.

Defeat leaves United in eighth spot, outside of the European places with three games remaining and a daunting match against Arsenal to come on Sunday.
