Manchester United cruised to a 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, as Romelu Lukaku bagged a brace and Ashley Young slotted home late on, in what was a clinical performance from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men.

With Jesse Lingard, Nemanja Matic, Anthony Martial and Ander Herrera all out through injury, there was a chance United may struggle in what is often a testing away journey.

However, the travelling side were the dominant team throughout and only briefly looked under threat when Joel Ward got one back for the Eagles in the second half.

But, Lukaku’s two clever finishes beforehand put the Red Devils in a positive position, despite Palace’s pressure early on in the second 45.

There was still that lingering threat from Roy Hodgson’s men, however, the scare for the travelling fans was quickly extinguished once Young neatly netted United’s third once he was given space from a smart Paul Pogba through ball.

Here are our four findings from United’s victory over Palace on Wednesday night.
