Manchester United vs Crystal Palace LIVE: Premier League latest score, goals and updates from fixture today


Manchester United Officially Announce Ralf Rangnick As Interim Manager

A new era at Manchester United begins today as Crystal Palace travel to Old Trafford for Ralf Rangnick’s first game in charge as interim manager.

Michael Carrick, who departed as coach midweek following the win over Arsenal, hands over the Red Devils in a better situation than when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer left them, following his sacking.

A win will take United to within three points of West Ham in fourth, with David Moyes’ side shocking Chelsea at the London Stadium on Saturday.

Rangnick will now look to stamp his authority on this side and rebuild a top four case, while bringing enough organisation and confidence to become a threat to win a cup this season. Cristiano Ronaldo’s role under Rangnick will be interesting, with the German dismissing any suggestions that the Portuguese cannot adjust to his philosophy and claiming it should be the other way around: “We play in the most competitive league in the world so we need all the players on board. What I saw from Cristiano yesterday, he is more than willing to do that, to put his input into the team. His team-mates will have to do the same.”

Follow live score and goal updates, analysis and reaction in the first-look of United under Rangnick.

Man Utd vs Crystal Palace: Late goals sink Palace

Raphinha’s 94th minute winner for Leeds on Tusday night wasn’t the first time Crystal Palace have conceded late on this season. They have conceded in the 90th minute of league fixtures three times already costing them a total of five points which will be a frustrating concern for Patrick Vieira.

Man Utd vs Crystal Palace: Vieira on Benteke and Man Utd

Crystal Palace manager, Patrick Vieira, has been speaking to BBC MOTD and says he’s been impressed with his team’s recent performances even if results haven’t gone their way and singled out Christian Benteke as one of the players in good from. He said:

Last week against Leeds we did some interesting things, we have to keep this going.

“Christian Benteke is a really good target up front, he’s strong enough to hold up the ball. He’s scoring goals, that’s good for us. I still want him to score even more goals.

“I think it’s a tough place to come and perform because of the atmosphere and quality of the team.

“We know there’s been a lot of talk in the last few days but we have to do the talking ourselves as a team. Do what we can do to get the result.”

Man Utd vs Crystal Palace: Old Trafford’s weak defences

Manchester United have conceded in 15 consecutive home games across all competitions in what is their worst run since 1959. Add to that the brilliant form of David De Gea and this is a major problem that Ralf Rangnick needs to fix.

If Crystal Palace win today, United would have lost seven home fixtures in a calendar year for the first time in 35 years.

Man Utd vs Crystal Palace: Premier League standings

Manchester United could finish the day as high as fifth place if they defeat Crystal Palace and Tottenham fail to win against Norwich. If both team are successful United will move ahead of Arsenal into sixth and Spurs will take fifth spot. United are currently six points behind West Ham who occupy fourth and they’ll want to close that gap as quickly as possible.

Crystal Palace (11th) are eyeing up a return to the top 10 and can get there with three points today. They may not end the day that high though as Brentford could overtake them with three points against Leeds and Aston Villa can move above them with a godd result versus Leicester in the late kick off.

Man Utd vs Crystal Palace: Benteke on Palace

Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke has been speaking about life under Patrick Vieira, who took over as head coach during the summer, and says that this current Palace team is ‘one of the best I’ve played with’. Benteke told Premier League Produtcions:

With this team now I’ve been here for five years and it’s one of the best teams I’ve played with,

“I’ve been through good times, bad times. Now we have new staff, new players, new energy in the team. I think it’s good.

“It’s healthy competition. The manager has been a top player so he knows what he needs for every game. I think you don’t have to take it personally but at the same time obviously when you don’t play you get frustrated. Sometimes a player might be more important for that game than another player, but that doesn’t mean it’s something personal.”
