United keep pressure on with Palace rout

Mourinho United

Ander Herrera has fallen out of favour and it seems Mourinho prefers the midfield partnership that gave him so much success against CSKA Moscow.

Old Trafford was not a fortress under David Moyes, Louis van Gaal or in Mourinho's first season, but that appears to be the case this term.

They play Crystal Palace, who sit bottom of the table on zero points with zero goals scored and 13 conceded.

Hodgson could be forced to field 24-year-old Freddie Lapado in the match, a player who spent last season on loan with Oldham Athletic, and who's last full-time club before Crystal Palace was Isthmian League side Margate. Out of 16 Premier League meetings between the two sides, United have won 13, and three have ended in draws.

Mata's goal three minutes in set the tone for another impressive win, with Fellaini's double all-but wrapping up the points prior to Lukaku netting his 11th United goal late on.

Spanish global David De Gea has been impressive so far this season and will likely keep his place in goal barring any injury. To overtake City, United have to beat the Eagles as City will be playing against the defending champions Chelsea in this round.

But on Saturday it was especially long for Joel Ward after the Englishman tore him apart from as early as the third minute when he left the Palace man for dead before laying on Juan Mata's opener. Marouane Fellaini scored either side of half-time to ensure the game was over as a contest by the time his second hit the net after 49 minutes.

Liverpool, who played Spartak Moscow in Russian Federation on Tuesday, are the only team to play on Sunday, against Newcastle at St James' Park.

Manchester United's striker Romelu Lukaku keep scoring in all the matches.

Nemanja Matic's presence meant that Fellaini was allowed to push forward, and he was devastating when the ball was in the air.

They haven't lost any of this season's games, including the Champions League and the Carabao Cup matches.

Palace have yet to register a single point since the start of the new Premier League season, with the loss to City marking their heaviest defeat of the campaign so far.

Palace's last league win over United came way back in 1990-91.

"The past three weeks' work has been good but this [international] break will be good to get more work done".
