An imperious Manchester United went to the top of the table on Saturday as they enjoyed a resounding 4-0 win over Crystal Palace at Old Trafford.

The hosts took no time to break the deadlock as some brilliant individual effort by Marcus Rashford ended with Juan Mata scoring his first goal of the season. Marouane Fellaini then hit a brace through two headed goals either side of half-time to triple Manchester United’s lead.

Finally, in the dying moments of the match the midweek partnership of Anthony Martial and Romelu Lukaku combined yet again as the Belgian hit his 11th goal of the season to complete another four-goal salvo for his side. The scoreline was a major talking point on Twitter as Jose Mourinho’s men enjoyed another emphatic result.

Meanwhile, Juan Mata was lauded after he marked his 200th Premier League appearance with his first goal of the season.

Special praise was reserved for Marcus Rashford as well, who provided two brilliant assists in the match.

But, the hero of the day was Marouane Fellaini who made a surprise start and led Manchester United to the win with a brace.
