  • Manchester United fans are loving David Beckham's latest Instagram post

A brace from Marouane Fellaini was dotted before and after Juan Mata's opener after just three minutes, with Romelu Lukaku adding his side's fourth in the game's dying stages.

This will be United's third win on the trot in the Premier League since their 2-2 draw with Stoke at the beginning of September. The England worldwide produced some fine wing play before cutting the ball back for Mata to tuck in the opener and then whipped in a superb free-kick for Fellaini to head home. Rashford had two assists in a single game for the first time in his United career during the victory. But the biggest plus-point was his positivity in the opposing penalty area that led to two goals and him seemingly filling Pogba's boots with consummate ease.

Not a stereotypical wide man, Mata drifts inside off the right to create space for Antonio Valencia to fly down the wing.

Without hitting top gear, United doubled their advantage in the 35th after the industrious Ashley Young delivered a ideal cross from the left for Fellaini to sweep home at the far post.

Half an hour had passed at Old Trafford when Marcus Rashford was confronted with a deflected ball looping up awkwardly over his head.

But it's not just about the goals for Lukaku, as Mourinho stressed after the game.




Palace manager Roy Hodgson dreams of having a scorer like Kane at his disposal.

"A goal down after three minutes was the worst possible scenario, but there were moments in today's game where I can take a lot of encouragement", he said.

Despite previously being a divisive figure among United's support, Fellaini has attained cult hero status at Old Trafford in recent months following a number of match-winning performances. Even with Eric Bailly left on the bench, United looked solid.

The result left Palace rooted to the bottom of the table after a record seventh successive defeat without a goal to start the season. It was unfortunate, then, that they came up against a team that hasn't conceded a league goal at home since April. 30th. City plays Chelsea away in Saturday's late game. It is those games against Newcastle and West Ham that will show how equipped they are to beat the drop.

Wilfried Zaha and Christian Benteke are undoubtedly the two best attacking options Palace have, and without them they lack any sort of attacking options. Neither Bakary Sako or Freddie Ladapo could cause United any problems.

He had never properly fit-in since his arrival from Everton, not helped by the fact that he was the "poster boy" for the failure of David Moyes" time in charge of the club as the only signing in the first "post-Fergie' transfer window.
