Manchester United recorded their first win in four games on Saturday.
The Red Devils saw off Crystal Palace 1-0 at Old Trafford thanks to a deflected long-range strike from substitute Juan Mata.
Palace goalkeeper Julian Speroni should have done better with Mata’s effort, but United were the better team and the goal was just reward for their dominance.
Here’s how Louis van Gaal’s men rated at Old Trafford…
GK: David de Gea – 7/10
Had a fairly quiet afternoon. His main contribution was to intercept an Adrian Mariappa cross, which looked destined to find Frazier Campbell unmarked on the far post.
RB: Antonio Valencia – 8/10
Showed incredible energy and made more tackles – nine – than any other player on the pitch.
LB: Luke Shaw – 7/10
Seemed to enjoy himself a lot, getting forward frequently. He was fairly solid defensively.
