Manchester United may have had a large group of players out injured, however regardless they earned a valuable win away to Crystal Palace. Romelu Lukaku finished a nine-match goal drought with a pair of goals as an exhausted Manchester United beat Crystal Palace 3-1 to secure a club-record eighth progressive away victory across all rivalries. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was without a large group of first-team regulars because of injuries, yet Lukaku ventured up having been given a rare opportunity to lead the line, his twofold playing a part in bringing down a spirited Palace side.



Joined just about shaded an even first half and went into the break ahead thanks to a fine Luke Shaw-inspired Lukaku goal in the 33rd moment. Lukaku got his second of the day just after the break and, although Joel Ward pulled one back in the 66th moment, Ashley Young struck late on to end the hosts' expectations and keep United just a point behind fourth-placed Arsenal, who thrashed Bournemouth 5-1.
