PEEP! PEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEEP!

Full time and it's been a rather delightful little display from United's youngsters. There's happiness in the air as Jose Mourinho and Manchester United hop, skip and jump into their biggest game of the season - against the thrilling youngsters of Ajax

It was a pleasure to cover this match, thank you for reading.

Anirudh Menon signing out... 

Toodle-ooo
...
93' Palace win a late corner off Jones... but the Englishman clears comfortably
...
92' United are playing the ball around with absird ease here - Palace are chasing shadows
...
91' THREE MINUTES will be added on...United are hogging the ball here as Gomes gets physically bullied off it by Ward. United keep possession though
...
90' Angel Gomes gets his first touch on the ball, and throws in a couple of body feints just to get the stands on their feet. 
...
88' Wayne Rooney is taken off for Angel Gomes... the young Portuguese is the THIRD YOUNGEST PLAYER TO REPRESENT MANCHESTER UNITED - the youngest player to take to the Old Trafford pitch since the late, great, Duncan Edwards. Wayne Rooney, meanwhile, gets a resounding round of applause from a grateful stadium. He deserves every bit of that, the legend. 
...
85' Phil Jones marauds down the middle of the park in that awkward, powerful, style of his but he just about overhits a ball to Wayne Rooney
...
83' There's been a large delay as Joel Ward gets attention drawn to what looks like a broken nose everywhere. There's blood everywhere - it isn't a pretty sight
...
80' Anthony Martial tries to lob the ball over Messrs Rooney, Ward and Kelly - but the latter gets to the ball well before the Frenchman. He isn't starting the Europa League final is he? 
...
78' Zaha is down again, and this time he looks done for the day. Allardyce takes him of and  throws in another ex-United youngster Frazier Campbell
...
77' United give the ball away again and Zaha careens a pass towards Benteke that finds the Belgian offside
...
76' Milivojevic sweeps in a rather nice freekick that Perreira does well to save comfortably, if rather theatrically.
...
75' KaiKai sneaks in behind United's defence - and wins a corner which place play short. Perreira claws away the lovely little dink in (barely) before Tuanzebe fouls Sako in a great area for Palace - some twenty two yards away from goal
...
74' Zaha is caught again - this time by Carrick and Anthony Taylor doesn't hesitate whilst flashing the veteran United man a yellow car. 
...
73' Bakary Sako sends in a wicked curler that Rooney almooost manages to circumvent into his own goal! The resultant corner, though, is well cleared by Rooney. Zaha takes on Tuanzebe and whips in a cross that Michael Carrick does superbly to head away from the six-yard box
...
72' Zaha is taken out again - this time by Axel Tuanzebe - and the Ivorian looks at the ref with pain seeping through his eyes. The man has a point, he's been kicked around Old Trafford today
...
71' Mitchell skins both Zaha and Ward with some sublime skill and runs along the byline - his cross, though, is not dangerous enough to threaten Hennessy. Great skill from the young lad, though
...
69' United look a lot more sluggish now - they have no need to be anything but - however a little bit if nippiness amongst the youth ranks would look nice, Rooney lets everyone know he certainly thinks they should liven it up
...
68' Puncheon tries to play in Benteke in behind the United defence but the Palace midfielder take his own sweet time about it and the opportunity goes begging. 
...
66' Allardyce makes his second change throwing on the pacy Sullly Kaikai for Patrick van Aanholt as Palace look to regain a measure of respectability in the scoreline
...
65' United are taking the sting out of the game by passing it around with great patience... in the absence of Paul Pogba, Josh Harrop has taken on the responsibility of forcing United forward, 
...
63' The terribly disappointing Martial runs at Ward - full speed - before laying the ball a foot or three behind Josh Harrop. 
...
60' Palace see out the danger yet again and Zaha has another run at Fosu Mensah. He wins that battle once again, but his pull back is cleared decently by Michael Carrick. Allardyce sends on McArthur for the exciting Bakary Sako
...
58' United pass the ball around the park with comfortable ease as they look for an opening.. Josh Harrop looks good on the ball, I must say 
...
56' AAAAH! McTominay marauds down the right wing before lifting in a perfect cross to Rooney that he controls instantaneously. He feints and beats one defender but can't get his shot in as Tomkins comes diving in.
