An own goal by Delaney and a screamer by Darmian keeps Manchester United in the race for the top 4.

United looked extremely comfortable on the ball during tonight's game and probably would have scored more had it not been for their wastefulness in possession and the heroics of Palace goalkeeper Speroni.
