Manchester United 2-0 Crystal Palace LIVE: Mate scores plus Premier League latest updates

Express Sport brings you all the best snaps as Manchester United players arrive at the Lowry ahead of their clash with Crystal Palace

Man Utd vs Palace 12: Manchester United are dominating here. Mamadou Sakho has already cleared a few balls away but the hosts are knocking on the door of a second goal.

Man Utd vs Palace 2: GOAL! Juan Mata puts United 1-0 up. Rashford heads down the wing and centres to Mata, who taps in.

Man Utd vs Palace 1: We’re underway at Old Trafford and around the country. Jose Mourinho will be expecting a high tempo from the off.

Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson is hoping for some good fortune at Old Trafford today.

"There's never a good time to play Manchester United,” the former England manager said.

“We are here to play against the big teams and I guess Jose will say it is not ideal to be playing on a Saturday after travelling back from Russia, but they have a strong squad."

Romelu Lukaku starts for Manchester United after passing a late fitness test.

Antonio Valencia, Phil Jones, Juan Mata, Marouane Fellaini and Marcus Rashford come into the XI.

Man Utd: De Gea, Valencia, Jones, Smalling, Young, Matic, Fellaini, Mata, Mkhitaryan, Rashford, Lukaku.

Crystal Palace: Hennessey, Ward, Sakho, Delaney, Van Aanholt, Townsend, Milivojevic, Cabaye, Schlupp, Puncheon, Sako.

Manchester United head into this clash having won five on the bounce. They haven’t lost since going down 2-1 to Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup.

United have scored exactly four goals in three of their last four games.

They play a Palace side leaking goals at the back and unable to score at the other end.

Palace are without Christian Benteke today… just to make life harder for boss Roy Hodgson.
