Man Utd 1-2 Crystal Palace: Patrick van Aanholt scores winner

Ayew’s goal was Palace’s first of the season

Crystal Palace stunned Manchester United with an injury-time winner to record their first victory at Old Trafford since 1989.

Full-back Patrick van Aanholt scored in the 93rd minute, smashing in as the ball broke loose following Wilfried Zaha’s burst forward.

But Rashford will rue striking the post from the penalty spot – the second spot-kick the Red Devils have missed this week.

Jordan Ayew had scored the opener in the first half against the run of play, latching on to Jeffrey Schlupp’s flick-on and coolly converting Palace’s first goal of the campaign, before the late drama.
