Crystal Palace were defeated 2-0 at home to Manchester United.

Roy Hodgson's side could count themselves unlucky with two key decisions going in favour of United.

The Eagles were denied a penalty just before half-time when Wilfried Zaha tangled with Victor Lindelof in the area.

Shortly after Marcus Rashford then broke the deadlock with a neat finish in first-half stoppage time.

Palace striker Jordan Ayew had a 'goal' ruled out by VAR for a very marginal offside in the 55th minute.

Anthony Martial compounded Palace's luck by giving United a two-goal cushion in the 78th minute after a good team move.

Patrick van Aanholt had to be carried off on a stretcher while trying to stop the goal as Palace slipped to their sixth consecutive defeat.
