Not the performance they'd have wanted, but they go into the halftime with a lone lead courtesy of Marcus Rashford.
With both Chelsea and Leicester winning their games of the round, United needed a perfect reply to keep their course. Ole made two changes from the last team, as Timothy Fosu Mensah and Mctominay came in for injured Luke Shaw and Nemanja Matic. Crystal Palace haven't won any of their last 5 games since the restart, but they'd think the deserve not to go into the break behind. David De Gea was called in to make 3 stunning saves as the Eagles attacked with more intent.
United failed to muster any shot on target throughout the half, until the 41st minute. Rashford picked up a loose ball from Bruno Fernandes, made a mess of Patrick Vaanholt, before slotting cooly into the net.
Here is what the fans are saying after Half time at Old Trafford.
