EPL: Marouane Fellaini's brace helps Manchester United thrash Crystal Palace 4-0

Mourinho United

United went top of the Premier League, at least temporarily with the win and will head into the worldwide break with plenty of confidence for yet again, the Red Devils won by a resounding margin without ever moving into top gear. They have no wins and no goals, and look like rivalling Derby County for the worst Premier League season ever.

"Obviously we played in the Champions League, people expect players to be exhausted, but that shouldn't be happening at Manchester United". United and City are the two teams standing at the top two positions.

Chelsea now has 13 points, and they won't like to drop any more points, especially by losing against the title contenders club.

United's win, which saw Marcus Rashford also shine with two assists, moved it top of the Premier League.

Fellaini followed up in the 35th minute to double the Red Devils' lead as he latched onto Ashley Young's exquisite cross at the back post.

United struggled for goals last season and were overly reliant on Zlatan Ibrahimovic to deliver the goods, though he often missed some big chances despite a highly respectable final tally of 28 for the campaign.

Crystal Palace is making history in the English Premier League. Now The Eagles have Roy Hodgson as their new manager. Score 4-0. Game over. No one should expect different from this match.

The match will be played at Old Trafford.

United's defence has been solid so far this season and would be hoping to keep the Eagles attackers at bay.

Most of United's players now head off on global duty.

"It is a great achievement but it is only possible with a good team", said Mourinho.

However, according to Oliver Kay of the Times, this performance may not have been enough to earn Martial a start against Crystal Palace on the weekend.

However, Crystal Palace is a strong side, judging by the players at the club's disposal.

United is favorite to win the game.

The boss confirms Michael Carrick and Phil Jones remain unavailable for Saturday's game.

However, just before the break, United had a second, with Ashley Young assisting Marouane Fellaini with a attractive cross. The defensive line is likely to be same from the last match, but players in mid and attack can be replaced.
