FULL TIME: Palace win 2-1 after van Aanholt's injury time goal after the ball squirmed under De Gea. Ayew gave Palace the lead, James equalised after Rashford had earlier missed a penalty. Thanks for following the game with us..
Seconds left for Palace to hang on!
- GoalPatrick van AanholtCrystal Palace
GOAL FOR PALACE! Pogba gives the ball away, Palace break and van Aanholt's hopeful shot goes in after a howler from De Gea who failed to turn the ball around the post.
Zaha knocks the ball down the flank, he is headng towards goal but Lindelof just manages to cover.
- GoalDaniel JamesManchester United
GOAL FOR UNITED! Zaha loses the ball, the ball is played into the box for James who hammers it into the net. Great strike.
- OffScott McTominayManchester United
- OnJuan MataManchester United
Mata is on for United's final change.
Palace are back in numbers and denying United space. They also appear to be engagin in some classic time-wasting although who can blame them.
NO PENALTY GIVEN! VAR rules there was not enough contact by Ward on Rashford.
PENALTY APPEAL! Rashford bursts towards goal, he seems to lose his footing under a challenge from Ward. VAR is taking a look..
CLOSE! McTominay's drive from the edge of the area is way off target. Moments later, James wins a free-kick but Pogba's backward header skims over the bar.
- OffJordan AyewCrystal Palace
- OnChristian BentekeCrystal Palace
Benteke is on for Palace in place of Ayew.
United have been guilty of going too direct for the most part, there has been little fluency in their passing.
- Yellow cardDaniel JamesManchester United
James is guilty of simulation again and is booked although there looked to be contact.
RASHFORD MISSES THE PENALTY! The striker's effort strikes the inside of the post and goes out of play. Goodness me.
PENALTY TO UNITED! McTominay is brought down after trying to link up with Martial. But who will take it?
United look out of ideas, lots of hopeful long balls into the box easily dealt with by Cahill and co. There's no Lukaku anymore to be a target man.
We have reached the hour mark. United have had 15 shots - but just one on target.
- OffJesse LingardManchester United
- OnMason GreenwoodManchester United
Mason Greenwood, who looked good in pre-season, is on for Lingard.
Similar to the first half, it has been all United so far.
PENALTY SHOUT! Martial turns Kelly to slip into the box and looked to be pulled over. But the referee and VAR so no penalty.
BIG CHANCE! Another United onslaught. Young at the back post scuffs his volley into the ground.
Ward makes a hash of what should have been a straightforward block and Lingard nearly capitalises. Seconds later Pogba plays a neat one-two with Lingard and nearly sneaks through.
Ayew scored Palace's first goal of the campaign.
CHANCE! Young whips in a cross over the Palace defence for James to unleash a volley only for van Aanholt to make a block.
United are looking to get the ball more directly to the feet of Martial, who was anonymous in the first half.
- Yellow cardAaron Wan-BissakaManchester United
No changes made by either side. Wan-Bissaka is in the book for a late challenge.
KICK OFF: Palace get the second half underway..
This delayed substitution is definitely one of the talking points of the first half.
- End of 1st Half
HALF TIME: Palace lead 1-0 courtesy of Ayew's goal against the run of play.
The hosts have looked flat and predictable in attack since conceding after dominating the game.
There will be FIVE minutes added on after the injuries to James and Shaw.
Lovely from Zaha who runs rings around Young four times but his final cross is gathered by De Gea.
CHANCE! From the resulting free-kick, Pogba's effort is over the bar, prompting groans from sections of the crowd.
CONTROVERSY! Cahill escapes a red for bundling over Martial on the edge of the Palace box. VAR is taking a look but the yellow card stands suggesting that Ward would have covered him.
- Yellow cardLuka MilivojevicCrystal Palace
Milivojevic goes into the book for bringing down Lingard.
United look terrible at the back. And you can argue that had Shaw gone off earlier, they would have dealt better with the long clearance which led to Ayew's goal as Maguire was covering Shaw.
CHANCE FOR PALACE! Zaha is in acres of space after bulldozing past Lindelof, from a tight angle De Gea is there to snuff out the danger.
- OffLuke ShawManchester United
- OnAshley YoungManchester United
Shaw is now coming off for Young. On Monday it was penalty taking duties, today it is confusion over whether Shaw wants to come off or not.
Unbelievable. First there was the confusion over Shaw's injury. Then Lindelof is easily beaten in the air, and Ayew finds himself clear on goal to score.
- GoalJordan AyewCrystal Palace
GOAL FOR PALACE! With their first attack, the visitors score through Ayew's cool finish after a mixup between Maguire and Lindelof from De Gea's clearance.
Shaw looks to have injured his hamstring and is making way for Young, quite a few players have picked up knocks in the first half. Shaw then decides to come back on.
James needs treatment for a knock but is back on.
A solid start from the debutant.
That Rashford free-kick skimmed the top of the bar after he clipped it over the wall, another decent effort.
CHANCE! Pogba wins a free-kick after taking an extra touch and being brought down on the edge of the box. The Frenchman and Rashford stand over the ball, the England striker takes it and its over the bar.
We have reached the midway point of the first half and it's been one-way traffic, similar to the first half of United's game against Wolves on Monday.
Palace have defended well, particularly Ward and Cahill, but have been unable to trouble United's defence.
Replays showed it was van Aanholt standing in front of the keeper who blocked James' effort from ten yards.
GOOD SAVE! Shaw's toe poke cross finds James at the back post whose effort is blocked by the keeper. It's been all United so far, Zaha has yet to get into the game.
GOOD EFFORT! United have a free-kick around 30 yards out, Ward is off the field needing treatment after a stray arm. Rashford steps up and hammers is effort narrowly wide.
Zaha, starting on the right, has attempted more take-ons than any other player in the Premier League since the start of last season.
CLOSE! United get fortunate as Lingard is not penalised for a challenge on van Aanholt, , the ball is eventually played to Rashford who slips as he takes a shot and Kelly gets back to deal with the danger.
CHANCE! Martial is tripped on the edge of the box by Kelly. Pogba's cross is cleared, it falls to Shaw whose shot is high, wide and not particularly handsome.
CHANCE! United havr a corner, its a good delivery and McTominay leaps highest but fires his header over the bar, he should have found the target from there.
Palace's midfield are already on the back foot. Wan Bisakka has been driving forward at every opportunity, he finds James but he was unable to find a team-mate with a cross.
United sticking with 4-2-3-1 while the visitors look to be going 4-5-1 with Ayew leading the line and Zaha on the right flank.
A hug between Zaha and Wan-Bissaka in the Old Trafford tunnel before the players emerged. It will be an interesting battle on the pitch between these two..
KICK OFF: We are underway in glorious sunshine.
COUNTDOWN: 5 minutes till kick off!
Zaha four appearances Manchester United in a forgettable spell between 2013 and 2015. .And nine of Wilfried Zaha's 10 Premier League goals last season came in away matches.
The Eagles last won a league game at Old Trafford in December 1989 courtesy of a brace from Mark Bright in a 2-1 victory. They've failed to score in 11 of their subsequent 12 away league games at United.
Palace boss Roy Hodgson has confirmed Palace will be playing "a different way today", suggesting the visitors will tweak their formation.
"For teams like ourselves - and I've worked with teams like Fulham and West Brom who are in a similar position - Old Trafford has always been a very daunting place to go if you need a result. They are a top team and a very top club.
"Every footballer in the world would like to play at Old Trafford. In that respect, it's a great occasion."
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on the danger Palace possess: "Every single Premier League game gives you a different challenge and, of course, Crystal Palace are a very well organised team.
"They've got pace up front for counter-attacks and they're strong on set-pieces. So we know we'll have to do all parts of the game well."
United are unchanged from the Wolves game which means Wan-Bisakka faces his former side and designated penalty takers Pogba and Rashford both start.
Palace make 4 changes with Cahill making his debut and Kouyate, Schlupp and Ayew starting.
CRYSTAL PALACE: Guaita, Ward, Kelly, Cahill, van Aanholt, Milijovic, Kouyate, McArthur, Schlupp, Zaha, Ayew...Subs: Hennessey, Dann, McCarthy, Townsend, Meyer, Benteke, Wickham.
MANCHESTER UNITED: De Gea, Wan-Bisakka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, McTominay, Pogba, James, Lingard, Rashford, Martial...Subs: Romero, Tuanzebe, Young, Mata, Matic, Greenwood.
