Manchester United Dismantles Crystal Palace at Old Trafford

Manchester United provisionally went top of the Premier League after Marouane Fellaini scored two goals either side of Juan Mata's opener and Romelu Lukaku's record-equalling strike in a 4-0 rout of Crystal Palace on Saturday.

"You could see [Antonio] Valencia, Phil [Jones], [Marouane] Fellaini, [Juan] Mata and [Marcus] Rashford were at a different stage than [Romelu] Lukaku and [Henrikh] Mkhitaryan, which is normal".

The former England manager, however, is relishing the opportunity to spend some time on the training pitch with his new players and instill some positive habits in them - some of which he saw evidence of in the defeat at Old Trafford. Lukaku capped off the win with a goal in the 86th minute for the home squad.

That record is now extended to seven matches.

Without hitting top gear, United doubled their advantage in the 35th after the industrious Ashley Young delivered a flawless cross from the left for Fellaini to sweep home at the far post.

Lukaku grabbed his 11th goal in 10 games for United after substitute Anthony Martial's low cross left the in-form striker with a simple tap in.

United moved above neighbour Manchester City to the top of the standings on 19 points.

Jose Mourinho says that Manchester United's 4-0 win over Crystal Palace was a bigger scoreline than their performance deserved.

United led the first half of the match with 68% possession on the ball, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan doing his best to further the Red Devils' lead with a couple of attempts on goal but failed to convert his chances. They lost players during the week. We are playing well, not for 90 minutes, as sometimes we have periods where we lose our consistency in what I call quality with high intensity, but it is hard to do that for 90 minutes after a Champions League game.

The German football association is understood to have no objections over England players wearing the poppy, The Guardian reported. The new proposal is expected to be passed in time for November's global matches, which will be played between 6 and 14 November.

Marcus Rashford was recently named in the list of nominees for the Golden Boy award, and it's become a familiar refrain on English shores that he's just as good as Kylian Mbappe or Ousmane Dembele, the two young players who have dominated headlines recently. Jermain Defoe came closest in the second minute, hitting the bar. He is scoring goals, his energy is fantastic. Mourinho claimed on the eve of this game that he won't give Lukaku a proper rest until Ibrahimovic is fit again until January, but Rashford still has much to offer in a central role.

Japan defender Maya Yoshida equalised for Southampton with a blistering volley in the 75th minute, but Stoke substitute Crouch grabbed the 85th-minute victor.

Abdoulaye Doucoure kept Watford in contention and Brazilian Richarlison headed an equaliser in the final minute of added time.
