Manchester United defeat Crystal Palace in Ralf Rangnick’s opener in charge
| Top stories | Today Headlines
United dominated possession and took advantage of more shots than Palace – 11 in the first half alone – but a goal proved elusive for much of the game.
However, Fred’s strike from the edge of the box in the 77th minute settled the game and moved United to 6th place in the Premier League table.
The goal came shortly after Palace wasted their best chance of the game when Jordan Ayew failed to convert a shot into the net after a corner kick.
“Maybe a couple of situations where it was a little dangerous, but other than that we had total control of the game. In the end we deserved to win,” he said.
United are one point behind Tottenham Hotspur, 5th in the Premier League table. The north London side beat Norwich City 3-0 on Sunday thanks to goals from Lucas Moura, Davinson Sanchez and Son Heung-min.
