Manchester United vs. Crystal Palace
Minute Commentary
90' FT: MAN UTD 2 CRYSTAL PALACE 0
David Moyes can savour his first victory at Old Trafford as Manchester United manager, but his side were made to toil at times by a spirited and somewhat unlucky Palace side. The match hinged on a crucial decision just before half-time. Referee Jon Moss deemed Kagisho Dikgacoi to have pulled down Ashley Young inside the area, though the offence, if it was a foul at all, was committed just outside the box. Dikgacoi was dismissed for a professional foul and Robin van Persie sent Julian Speroni the wrong way from the resulting free-kick. Van Persie had hit the bar before that for United, while Dwight Gayle should have done better for the visitors having created a wonderful opening for himself. There was only one winner after the sending off, and the crucial second goal duly arrived nine minutes from time, Wayne Rooney curling in a free-kick at the near post with Speroni found a little wanting.
90' INTO STOPPAGE TIME
There will be a minimum of four minutes of added time.
90' WEAK FROM HERNANDEZ
Valencia and Rooney combine to tee up Hernandez, who shoots weakly straight at Speroni.
87' WASTEFUL FROM ROONEY
United are rampant now against a tiring Palace. Rooney wastes what should have been a great opening for a third with a dreadful cross.
85' MARIAPPA NEEDS TREATMENT
Januzaj shoots wide for United. Mariappa is down for Palace with a leg injury after trying to block the shot.
82' MORE ON THAT GOAL
It's a great effort from Rooney, but Speroni got over to cover his near post very sluggishly and a more alert goalkeeper would have kept that one out.
81' GOAL: UNITED 2 PALACE 0
Wayne Rooney adds a second for United with a curling free-kick.
79' UNITED SUBSTITUTION
Here is the final United change, with Javier Hernandez replacing Robin van Persie, a relief to those of us who don't have the Dutch marksmen in our fantasy football teams.
78' SPERONI SAVES AGAIN
Van Persie stings Speroni's fingers with a rasping shot from a narrow angle.
76' PALACE SUBSTITUTION
Palace's final switch sees Jimmy Kebe replace Chamakh.
75' GREAT CHANCE FOR ROONEY
Rooney passes up a glorious opening. Fabio lets a low ball in from the right from Carrick go through his legs, but the former Everton man was not expecting it to reach him and when he finally gets a shot away it is blocked.
74' QUITE A PROSPECT
Adnan Januzaj looks a terrific prospect. The ball sticks to his feet like glue, the Belgian, he has excellent close control.
71' SHOTS RAIN IN
United work a short corner on the right. Van Persie makes good use of the space and drives an angled shot just over the bar. You feel a second goal is not far away.
69' FELLAINI DENIED
Adnan Januzaj is in the thick of the action straight away, whipping in a dangerous cross from the left that Speroni spills. The Palace goalkeeper redeems himself with an excellent save to keep out a dipping volley from Fellaini.
67' UNITED SUBSTITUTION
David Moyes introduces more fresh legs, with Adnan Januzaj coming on for Young.
66' TRIVIA ANSWER
Earlier we asked you scored the decisive goal when these two sides met in the FA Cup final in 1990. It was Lee Martin, who netted the only goal in the replay after the two sides had drawn 3-3 in a thriller.
64' PALACE SUBSTITUTION
Another substitution. Another new signing. Cameron Jerome replaces Gayle for the visitors.
63' UNITED SUBSTITUTION
Here comes the first United switch, it's new boy Marouane Fellaini for Anderson.
61' WELL OVER FROM VAN PERSIE
Young and Evra combine superbly down the United left. The Frenchman does find Van Persie this time, but the shot on the turn goes into the stands.
59' PALACE SUBSTITUTION
New signing Adlene Guedioura comes on for Jose Campana for Palace.
58' CHASING A SECOND
Evra gets down the left on the overlap but pulls the ball behind Rooney and Van Persie, who were both lining up to add a second. Rooney then scuffs a shot in front of goal. Palace breathe again.
56' JUST WIDE FROM YOUNG
Young attempts an ambitious right-foot curler after cutting in off his wing but his effort goes just wide.
55' TRIVIA TIME AGAIN
Who scored what proved to be the decisive goal (in a replay) when these two sides met in the FA Cup final in 1990? Answer in a few minutes.
54' PALACE BOOKING
Marouane Chamakh is rightly cautioned for a late tackle on Vidic.
52' ON THIN ICE
Young trips Mariappa and is more than a little relieved that Mr Moss takes a lenient view, the England winger having been booked for diving in the first half.
50' CRUCIAL SPERONI SAVE
United go close to a second. Anderson threads a Michael Carrick-type pass through for Young, who shoots straight at Speroni.
49' WAS IT A PENALTY?
Having watched about a dozen replays of that penalty over half-time, Palace can consider themselves very unlucky. Firstly, initial contact was outside the box. And secondly, it appeared that Young initiated that contact, not Dikgacoi. It looks like a penalty at first glance if you're looking at the action from distance as referee Jon Moss was, but play on should have been the call. Ian Holloway will be livid and he'll be risking another touchline ban if he speaks his mind after the match.
47' ZAHA HOPES FOR ACTION
Wilfried Zaha is on the United bench today. He will be hoping to see some action today against his former club, though Fellaini for Anderson would be my prediction for the first United change.
46' HERE WE GO AGAIN
Palace get the second half under way. They've got a mountain to climb with only ten men.
45' HT: MAN UTD 1 CRYSTAL PALACE 0
United lead at the break against ten-man Palace thanks to Robin van Persie's penalty in first-half stoppage time. The foul by Kagisho Dikgacoi on Ashley Young also saw the visitors' midfielder sent off. Palace had been good up to then, keeping the champions at long range, with Van Persie's strike that hit the bar their only serious alarm. At the other end, Dwight Gayle had a glorious chance to give Ian Holloway's men the lead, but he shot wide of the post.
45' PALACE BOOKING
Dean Moxey is booked for a rash tackle on Van Persie.
45' GOAL: MAN UTD 1 CRYSTAL PALACE 0
Van Persie scores from the spot, sending Speroni the wrong way.
44' PENALTY AND RED CARD
Ashley Young goes down under challenge from Dikgacoi and United have a penalty. The Palace man is sent off for a professional foul.
43' SCARE FOR UNITED
Palace almost score a stunning opener. Gayle sneaks in behind Ferdinand to take an angled ball in his stride and lifts a shot just wide of the far post with only the goalkeeper to beat.
41' PALACE ESCAPE AGAIN
Young whips in a ball from the left which is inches over the head of Rooney at the far post.
40' OFF THE CROSSBAR
United almost score a blinding goal after a magnificent move that ends with a wonderful lofted ball from Rooney to Van Persie. The Holland striker brings the pass down on his chest and a right-foot thunderbolt from the edge of the box hits the top of the crossbar.
36' VAN PERSIE NOT FAR AWAY
Finally United create a meaningful chance. Evra crosses low from the left and an audacious back-heel from Van Persie is dragged just wide of the near post.
33' TRIVIA ANSWER
Earlier we asked you who scored twice for Palace the last time they won at Old Trafford. If it wasn't Ian Wright, then it had to be...Mark Bright.
32' WASTED OPPORTUNITY
Palace give the ball away again, but after Rooney finds Van Persie the Dutchman is unusually hesitant and the move breaks down as it reaches the edge of the visitors' box.
30' SHOT FROM DISTANCE
Rooney lets fly from 30 yards out and although it's on target Speroni catches comfortably at his near post without any alarm.
28' FOLLOWING THE GAMEPLAN
Ian Holloway has to be impressed by the discipline shown by his side so far. More than 25 minutes gone and that Carrick shot aside, United haven't had a sight of goal.
25' EVRA GOES DOWN
Evra goes down after being caught by Dikgacoi and Palace kick the ball out so he can get treatment. It's a minor ankle niggle, nothing more.
23' TRIVIA TIME
Who scored twice for Palace the last time they won on this ground in the league (Dec. 1989)? A clue: it wasn't Ian Wright. Answer in a few minutes.
21' PASS MASTER
He has his critics, but the range of passes delivered by Michael Carrick is breath-taking at times. The England man is the best player on the pitch at the moment.
19' BOOKED FOR DIVING
This time Ashley Young goes down in the box, looking for a penalty and is cautioned for diving. He actually kicked Kagisho Dikgacoi there. Good decision.
15' WELL WIDE FROM FABIO
Palace are defending admirably, but they are giving the ball away too cheaply and this pressure will tell unless they can mount more of a threat themselves. In the meantime, Fabio screws a low angled shot well wide of goal.
12' POOR TOUCH FROM RVP
Valencia threads a ball through to Van Persie down the inside-right channel, but the Dutchman loses control and Delaney clears.
10' PENALTY CLAIMS
Evra goes down in the box looking for a penalty after a challenge by Jedinak. That should have been a caution for diving in my book.
9' CLASH OF HEADS
Vidic comes off worse in an aerial challenge with Marouane Chamakh. He has a sore head, but fortunately no cut, so no Wayne Rooney-style protective headband is required.
8' VIEW FROM THE STANDS
Ian Holloway is sat in the stands, relaying messages down to assistant manager Keith Millen on the Palace bench. Or he might be dictating his memoirs, of course.
6' IN NEED OF A GOAL
Incredibly, Robin van Persie has failed to score in nine of his last 10 appearances at Old Trafford. He did get a hat-trick in that other match, though, the title-clinching 3-0 win over Aston Villa.
4' LONG-RANGE EFFORT
Palace are penned in their own half and a swerving long-range shot from Carrick is parried awkwardly by Speroni.
3' EARLY UNITED CORNER
United are immediately on the attack and Valencia wins the home side the first corner of the game. Van Persie delivers, but Chamakh heads clear.
2' A CUT ABOVE
Wayne Rooney is wearing a curious black cushioned headband over that cut. It's a bit of a disappointment, we had been hoping he might have opted for one of those black Marouane Fellaini wigs that are being sported by some of the crowd.
1' HERE WE GO
United kick off, attacking the goal to our right.
0' TEAMS NEWS
Wayne Rooney has recoved from that cut head and makes a surprisingly early return for United. New signing Marouane Fellaini is on the bench. Palace make just one change from the side that beat Sunderland, new signing Adrian Mariappa taking the place of Joel Ward.

0' PREVIEW
Who would have thought that just a point would separate champions Manchester United and newly-promoted Crystal Palace three games into the new Premier League season? A 1-0 defeat at Liverpool last time out on the back of a disappointing goalless draw at home to Chelsea means United have failed to score in successive Premier League games for the first time since August 2007. Manager David Moyes will want his side to put Palace to the sword, especially with the kick-off to the Champions League campaign just around the corner. United may have not made the marquee signing their fans had hoped for in the transfer window, but there is no doubt the acquisition of Marouane Fellaini from Everton will add strength and no little aerial threat to their midfield. The Belgian's mere presence in the area at set-pieces will unsettle defences and the ensuing mayhem can only benefit Robin van Persie, as if the Dutch goal machine needed any help. It promises to be a frustrating day for Palace boss Ian Holloway, who is not the best spectator but will have to watch the game from the stands as he serves the first of a two-game touchline ban incurred for criticising the match official after his side's home defeat by Tottenham on the opening weekend of the season. Today's game kicks off at 1245BST, so join us around 30 minutes beforehand when we should have the confirmed team news, which will be followed by a match commentary.
0' PLAYERS TO WATCH
The most successive matches Robin van Persie has gone without a Premier League goal in his Old Trafford career to date is three. After drawing blanks against both Chelsea and Liverpool, the smart money says he will not go a third league game without a goal today. RVP is bang in form as well, having scored three times in two away World Cup qualifiers for Holland in the past week. Three years ago Palace striker Dwight Gayle was working as a carpenter. Released by Arsenal as a youngster, Gayle was spotted playing for lowly Stansted, earning him a move to Dagenham and Redbridge via a season-long loan with Bishop's Stortford. He only joined Peterborough last January and 13 goals in 29 league games for the London Road club convinced Ian Holloway that he could perform at the top level and a £5 million move to Palace followed in the summer. Last time out Gayle won and scored the clinching penalty against Sunderland, his first Premier League goal. “It's a bit surreal. I'm not used to this,” Gayle said. “I always dreamed of scoring in the Premier League but I never thought it was going to happen, to be fair.”
0' HEAD TO HEAD
United have the better head-to-head record in league meetings between the sides with 19 wins to six by Palace and seven games being drawn. At Old Trafford, United have 12 wins to two by Palace, with a further two meetings ending up all square. Palace have never beaten United in eight previous Premier League meetings and have lost on their last six trips to Old Trafford in the league. Their last win over the Red Devils in the league came in the old Division One on May 11, 1991. There is, however, some cause for optimism, Palace fans. Your side did win on their last visit to Old Trafford, a 2-1 triumph after extra time in the fifth round of the League Cup on Nov. 30, 2011. Glenn Murray got the winner, midway through the first extra period, though the game is best remembered for one of the best goals you are likely to see. It came from the talented but inconsistent Darren Ambrose, a long-range blockbuster which won the Mitre goal of the Year for 2012. Watch it here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=716yrt_cSpg The last league meeting between these sides at Selhurst Park on Mar. 5, 2005 ended in a goalless draw, Palace seeing Vassilis Lakis dismissed midway through the second half. The last league meeting on this ground came earlier the same season, United twice being pegged back after taking the lead before running out 5-2 winners, Paul Scholes getting two of their goals.
0' FORM GUIDE
United start the weekend down in seventh, with four points from three games, a point better off than Palace who lie in 13th. United have had a mixed start to life under David Moyes. After recording an emphatic 4-1 win at Swansea on the opening Saturday of the season, they played out a boring goalless draw at home to Chelsea and most recently were beaten 1-0 by arch rivals Liverpool. Palace lost their first two games narrowly, to Tottenham and Stoke, but recorded a morale-boosting 3-1 win over Sunderland last time out, a result they thoroughly deserved. Palace, though, have won just one of their last 16 away league games.
0' EARLY TEAM NEWS
United will be without Wayne Rooney until that nasty gash to his head heals satisfactorily. Rafael (hamstring) and Phil Jones (ankle) are both doubtful, but Marouane Fellaini is in line for his debut following his £27.5 million move from Everton. Palace were dealt a double injury blow this week with the news that Jonny Williams and Jack Hunt will be out for some considerable time. New signing Hunt broke his ankle in training while Williams suffered ankle ligament damage on international duty. Manager Ian Holloway has something of a selection dilemma on his hands - keep faith with a winning team, or hand starts to some of the clutch of players he picked up before the close of the transfer window, such as Barry Bannan and Cameron Jerome.
0' MAN IN THE MIDDLE
Taking charge of today's game is Jon Moss, who was appointed to the select group of referees in June 2011. Born in Sunderland, but now living in Leeds, Moss has shown four yellow cards in his two Premier League appointments to date. His seven penalties awarded last season ranked third among top-flight officials and he has already pointed to the spot once this season, awarding a penalty to Chelsea against Hull that Frank Lampard subsequently missed. Interestingly, his only red card last term was given to Everton's Steven Pienaar at Queens Park Rangers, which drew the ire of then Toffees (now United) boss Moyes, who called it a “rubbish decision”. Moss' assistants today are Andy Halliday and Darren England, while Chris Foy is the fourth official.
