This was Crystal Palace’s first league win over United, home or away, since the old First Division days in 1991 when Ian Wright was among the scorers.
During that time, they’ve tried and failed to stop greats like Cantona, Scholes, Ronaldo and Van Persie. Yesterday they came up against a United front four with an average age of 20 and their best two players, Paul Pogba and David de Gea, out of form.
Palace rode their luck a little, with Marcus Rashford missing the first penalty of his career and a couple of VAR decisions United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer complained about. But when a winning goal arrived after 92 minutes — aka Fergie-time — it wasn’t too surprising that it went to the visitors.
