Download Crystal Palace vs Manchester United 1-3 2018/19 Highlights
Romelu Lukaku scored twice to make light work of Manchester United’s injury crisis with a comfortable 3-1 Premier League victory over Crystal Palace.
The Red Devils were missing eight first-team players at Selhurst Park, but extended their unbeaten league run under interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to 14 games.
Belgium striker Lukaku netted in each half, curling a well-placed shot into the corner for his first and scooping over goalkeeper Vicente Guaita for his second.
Looking to respond, Palace winger Jeffrey Schlupp flicked a header wide of the far post, but Joel Ward did manage to convert a diving header from close range with 24 minutes remaining.
United were under pressure late on but Ashley Young drilled in a third for the victory as United stay fifth in the table, a point behind Arsenal who hammered Bournemouth 5-1, while Palace remain 14th.
