That's full time. Mata, Fellaini twice, and Lukaku (for his 11th of the season) seal it for United as a patched-up Palace came and instantly fell apart. They are under pressure now, as are City, who take on Chelsea later tonight.
There will be three minutes of added time.
Hennessey claims a cross to the back post as Fellaini waits behind him for his hat-trick.
Rashford is fouled on the left wing, and United have a free kick in a dangerous position on the left wing, just by the corner of the box.
United could grab six or seven more if they put their mind to it here.
GOAL! Manchester United 4-0 Palace. Lukaku scores - Martial is slipped in by Herrera on the left and he rolls a ball across the six-yard box for Lukaku to tap in.
Fellaini gets a crack on the shins and goes down in midfield. Foul to United.
Herrera slides a pass into the path of Martial into the box, and he fires straight at Hennessey to win a corner.
10 minutes left for Palace to smash four past United. Roy is working on something here.
Fellaini concedes a free kick on the edge of the box. Townsend and Cabaye prepare to take it. It's Townsend's delivery, which flies just wide of the far post.

Rashford is back on, but Mkhitaryan is being swapped for Lingard.
Rashford is down after getting caught in the thigh by, or maybe hurt his groin, as Sakho challenged him. He's down receiving treatment, but will be off shortly.
Lukaku tries to clip a ball into the middle for Rashford, lurking near the penalty spot, but it's intercepted.
Milivojevic has gone down in midfield after being caught, and the Palace subs start to warm up.
Mkhitaryan sprints down the left to win a corner. It's taken short to Young on the corner of the box, and his low drive at the near post is well stopped by Hennessey.
Schlupp meets a cross by the penalty spot, and glances it miles wide of goal. Still, at least he got into the box.
Not much going on now.
United's Twitter account is happy.
Sako goes down after being caught by a clumsy Smalling challenge. A penalty could well have been given there.
- GoalMarouane FellainiManchester United
GOAL! Manchester United 3-0 Palace. Fellaini scores - Young wins a free kick to the left of the box. Rashford blasts in a cross into the six-yard box, and Fellaini flicks in his header from just a couple of yards out.
Mkhitaryan's cross runs to Rashford just inside the box, and his well-struck shot is blocked.

- End of 1st Half
That's half time. Easy for United, and poor from Palace. It's hard to see a way back for Palace in this match, and in the league.
There will be a minute's added time.
Mkhitaryan is the latest player to go close for United, as he hooks a volley over from the left hand side of the box. United should score more here. Should.
Another chance for United, a Rashford collects a Mata cross from the right wing and lashes it against the near post. Corner for United.
Mkhitaryan clips in a corner to the back post, and Smalling heads into the ground and just wide of the near post.
It is absolutely rodding it down now.
Big Fell now has his third of the season, and looks like the player he was at Everton.
Some really dreadful defending from Jones and Young near the area sees Palace take hold of the ball, but United eventually scramble it away.
- GoalMarouane FellainiManchester United
GOAL! Mancheter United 2-0 Palace - Fellaini scores. Young takes the ball onto the left wing, cuts onto his right and swings a low cross to the back post where Fellaini is on hand to tap in.
Rashford shoulders a pass to Mkhitaryan, which is pretty cool. Enough PlayStation football, Mourinho could be thinking.
Sako races onto a measured pass from Cabaye, but his fierce shot from a relatively tight angle is beaten away by De Gea at the near post.
Big Fell, then Joones, clear it for Rashford to chase, but the 'keeper rushed out to knock it away from danger.
Cabaye fires in a cross to the back post, and Valencia knows Puncheon is behind him, so heads it behind.
Lukaku's cross hits Puncheon in his raised hands. Free kick on the right wing. Mata will take, Hennessey claims it unchallenged.
Smalling heads away a corner for a second, this time on the left wing. Cabaye jogs over to take. United clear, for now.
You get the sense that both sides would be happy for a 1-0 win and the chance to turn in for the day. Its sluggish stuff. Cabaye, though, disagrees with my assesment and wins a corner on the right.
Corner for United on the left wing. Mata swings it in, but it's hoofed away by Van Aanholt and Young plays it back to De Gea.
United will - obviously - want another one here. Palace are so wretched that two goals would sort the result, but it would take just one lucky break.
Hennessey races out to slide into the ball to take it off Lukaku's toes.
United are in total control, but are patient in possession.
Matic rolls a pass out wide for Valencia, but it's asking too much of him to get there first. Palace clear down the left wing for United to collect and start again.
Mata lays it off to Rashford on the inside left in the box, he sets up Matic to take a swing at it, and it flies over the bar.
Puncheon robs Fellaini as he spins in the box, but United keep hold of it until Matic's loose pass is intercepted.
Sakho meets Cabaye's cross from the right wing, and his header loops well over from six yards.
Young catches late on the wing as Ward delivers a cross, and Palace have a free kick.
- GoalJuan MataManchester United
GOAL! Manchester United 1-0 Palace. Mata scores - Rashford leaves the Palace defence stranded as he scoots away from Ward, driving to the byline. He rolls the ball into the box, it just misses Lukaku, and Mata is on hand to side-foot it home.
Smalliing collects a ball for Palace's forwards to chase, and plays it back to De Gea.
- 1st Half
The match gets underway.
I'm going to predict a surprise 1-0 win for Palace - things have gone suspiciously well for United so far this season.
With 10 minutes left, watch the latest rumours.

United can go top with a win, and with Chelsea playing Manchester City later tonight, they have a chance to keeping that lead going into the international break.
You look at that Palace team and... yes. It's a very poor team by Premier League standards, and with Zaha and Benteke both out, they are without their best two players. Sako has not scored in the league since 2015, and they are managed by Hodgson - it's not looking good for them at all.
Roy Hodgson has talked up his team's application - if not chances: "At the moment I haven’t noticed that there’s any difference in that. The players, especially from what they’re showing us on the training field are showing us a lot of enthusiasm, a lot of optimism. But as I’ve said so many times, what we’re desperately in need of are some good performances, hopefully that might lead to some results, and that might make life easier for everybody.”
Mourinho has said just how important Romelu Lukaku is to Manchester United: "Look, without Zlatan, we cannot rotate the striker, especially because Marcus Rashford is playing also in other positions,” Mourinho said ahead of Saturday's visit of bottom club Crystal Palace. So until the moment we have Zlatan we cannot think about giving rest to our No 9, the same way we give in other positions. We cannot do that."
