Three more points to keep up the fight

United beat Crystal Palace (1-3) and gets just one point behind the fourth place. The Red Devils have achieved their ninth victory in 11 games in the Premier League. Next Saturday, United hosts Southampton at Old Trafford.

Manchester United eased past Crystal Palace 1-3 at Selhurst Park in the midweek game of the Premier League. Lukaku with two goals (mins 33 and 52) and a late goal from Young (min 83) sealed the victory for United, the ninth in the last 11 league games. This impressive run leaves the Red Devils just a point off the places of Champions League, an unthinkable situation a couple months back.

Ward scored for the Londoners in the 66 minute and added a bit of spice to the game until Young’s late goal. United’s next challenge will be this Saturday at Old Trafford against Southampton.
