Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reveals Diogo Dalot injury ahead of Crystal Palace clash

Patrick van Aanholt scored a stoppage-time victor as Crystal Palace recorded their first league win over Manchester United in 28 years with a 2-1 victory at Old Trafford.

"We have to look behind the results".

Minutes before Van Aanholt's crucial imprint on the game, Welsh winger Daniel James looked to have rescued a point for United with a sublime, curled effort into the top corner in the dying minutes of the game to cancel out Jordan Ayew's effort which gave the Londoners a first-half advantage. "We know it's just the start and there are relationships to be worked on".

The now-Inter striker split opinion among United supporters, but he averaged a goal every two games and no other player boasts a similar ratio.

To add to Solskjaer's irritation, he also believed United were unfortunate not to be awarded another penalty in the second half when Rashford was seemingly felled in the box.

The Red Devils will be confident of another clean sheet this weekend when Wan-Bissaka faces his former employers Palace, who have yet to score in the Premier League this season.

New FedEx format may seem foggy, but should bring clarity
Last year, with no staggered start, Tiger Woods won the Tour Championship but Justin Rose won the FedEx Cup . It's about trying to win golf tournaments.

"We need people to set the standards to live up to, to set the tempo in games when we need it and the more experienced players in the dressing room are capable of doing that". But that was a goal of United's own making.

However, Marcus Rashford stepped up and failed to convert from the spot-kick. At least there had been no argument about the taker this time.

A late goal by Dutch fullback Van Aanholt, squeezed in at David De Gea's once impenetrable near post, claimed three points for Roy Hodgson's men in what was their first ever Premier League win against Manchester United.

With the decisions having gone his side's way, Hodgson could instead celebrate Palace's first Old Trafford victory in Premier League history. Daniel James, Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford support Anthony Martial. Would it really be so bad to give Alexis Sanchez, a player apparently being encouraged to leave on loan to Inter, another chance in the squad? Would restoring Fred and Nemanja Matic to the first-team picture at least give Solskjaer more options to change hard situations for the better?

This is not quite the time for panic at United. But for the 10 minutes before half-time they were all over the place and Palace could have inflicted more damage before the break.

"I will certainly remind myself about this one but my thoughts will turn very quickly to Colchester (in the Carabao Cup) because it's never going to be an easy game".
