PEEP! PEEP! PEEEEEEEEEP!

One more four-nil for Manchester United as they see off toothless, pointless, Crystal Palace with the kind of clinical efficiency that would make a stereotypical German engineer proud. As routine as routine gets. 

That's all from me, Anirudh Menon. 

Toodle-ooo!
...
92' Martial and his twinkle-toes work Old Trafford into a rapture down the left flank as United retain possession with calm elegance. 
...
91' Three minutes added on. 
...
90' United win a freekick down the left and Young swings it into Marouane Fellaini (who is implausibly looking for a hattrick) but Hennessey comes out well and get his gloves around the ball. 
...
88' Roy Hodgson is demanding effort from his players - but you've got to feel for them. Nothing has gone their way all season - and on top of last weekend's thrashing on the other side od MAnche8ster, this is just too much to handle, surely?
...
OH WOW! Herrera slips in Martial down the left wing and the Frenchman draws everyone to him before slipping in Lukaku - the big Belgian is all alone three yards from goal and he is NOT missing that. 
...
86' GOOOOOALLL! LUKAKU!
...
84' OUCH! McArthur slams into Fellaini and the Belgian is on the ground feeling his forehead and seemingly in considerable pain. He does get back on his feet, though. 
...
82' The corner causes a measure of confusion, but nothing too alarming and Herrera sends the rebound sailing out into the netherworld
...
81' OH! OH! OH! MARTIAL! Herrera plays in a lovely little ball that finds Martial racing into the box... Hennessey does superbly to charge out of his goal and close him down. Just a corner, where it should have been four 
...
79' Herrera does ever so well to steal the ball off Puncheon but his pass to Lingard is cut off by a desperate van Aanholt
...
78' Andros Townsend swings it toward the far post - looking for a header or the ball squeezing in inside the post - but it merely fizzes wide of De Gea's goal. 
...
77' A loose challenge from Fellaini sees Cabaye go crashing down... and the freekick is in a threatening position at the edge of the United box. 
...
76' Juan Mata walks off to a rousing standing ovation and in that ever-lovely gentleman's place comes the batter that is Ander Herrera
...
74' Poor ol' Sako is taken off for Freddy Ladapo... Palace threaten United's goal once again as Ward swings a lovely ball into the box where Riedewald is waiting. The Dutchman connects with nothing but fresh air and behind him, McArthur is caught unaware and the ball bounces off his knee!
...
73' Martial drops a touch deeper and puts in a lovely ball that Lukaku controls well and tees up Lingarrd - who sends it into the stands. 
...
72' Martial is on for Rashford... and he skins Ward immediately. How unfair on Palace to have to face an on-fire Martial just as they see the back of their previous tormentor-in-chief Marcus Rashford!
...
70' Oh YOUNG! The left-back takes a massive risk by underplaying a pass back to Smalling.... and United counter of the same move - Matic plays in Lingard who is brought down but LUKAKU GETS THE BALL, SKINS THREE DEFENDERS, SENDS THE KEEPER THE OTHER WAY AND PASSES IT JUST BEYOND THE FAR POST. HOW! HOW!
...
69' McArthur and Riedawald combine immediately to start off a good looking move for Palace but Cabaye's intelligent dink into Sako is well read by Smalling. The ball is then worked out to the right and Ward sends in a useful ball that Sako can only sky into the stratosphere. 
...
68' SHOT! CABAYE!  Utterly hopeless shot, but still. Hodgson makes a sub as Schlupp is taken for McArthur and Puncheon is taken for Reidawald. Damage limitation, me thinks
...
65' Jesse Lingard on, Henrikh Mkitarayan off. 
...
64' Nothing comes off the corner. 
...
63' Rashford's taken one in the unmentionables - after Sakho gave it a right good slap. UGH! That looked painful - Crystal Palace continue playing nonetheless and win a corner as a Cabaye shot ricochets off Valencia. 
...
62' OH! LUKAKU! The Belgian floats into the box, cuts back and goes the selfless route - trying to pick out Rashford; but Delaney does ever so well to intercept the ball. 
...
61' OOO PALACE! Van Aanholt swings in a teasing ball from which Sako can't really get much purchase behind with his shot. Palace have played much better than one would expect from a team that haven't scored in 6, to be completely honest
