Manchester United have taken an early lead against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford, with Erik ten Hag looking to get his side back to winning ways in the Premier League.
United are without a win in their last two games in the league, with one of them coming against today’s opponents at Selhurst Park last month.
It was a fast start in the 3 PM kick-off and with roughly five minutes on the clock, United were awarded a penalty after Will Hughes blocked Marcus Rashford’s cross with his arm.
Bruno Fernandes, one of United’s best performers since the turn of the year, stepped up and made no mistake from 12 yards as he rolled his side into the lead, as seen below.

Fernandes scored United’s only goal in the 1-1 draw between the two sides just over two weeks ago and he has now given the Reds a dream start to this game.
