United headed into the match on the back of a three-game losing streak, a run that has seen them loosen their grip on the top four and a return to the Champions League.

If Louis van Gaal’s side are to keep Liverpool at bay, it is imperative that they return to winning ways against Alan Pardew’s Palace on Saturday in the Premier League’s late kickoff.

They started the match well, and opened the scoring on 19 minutes when Juan Mata scored from the penalty spot.

However, there was an element of doubt about the awarding of the spotkick.

Scott Dann was adjudged to have handled the ball inside the box, although the Scouse defender insisted that Ashley Young’s cross had come off his chest.
