Palace lose seven consecutive matches, hammered 4-0 by United

Palace lose seven consecutive matches, hammered 4-0 by United

That didn't take long!

Two close-range finishes from two fine crosses underlined the importance of Fellaini's aerial threat in the box and he is clearly going to be a significant figure in United's season.

Mourinho's side doubled their lead in the 35th minute, however, when fit-again Fellaini converted a brilliant Ashley Young cross at the far post as Palace were hit with a killer blow 10 minutes before the break.

Fellaini has often been a target for criticism at Manchester United, but the Belgian's effectiveness has made him a favourite of the pragmatic Mourinho. The ball is easily struck by my Lukaku.

Palace's wait for a goal went on, with Andros Townsend's free-kick flying just wide in their only opportunity in the closing stages, before Anthony Martial was impressively denied by Hennessey after being played in by fellow substitute Ander Herrera. We kept playing, we created chances, we pressed and everyone did their job.

De Gea has been impressed by the form of his team-mates in front of him at Old Trafford, United having scored four goals in five of their victories this season. Conversely, this is the seventh defeat for Palace, who are now at the bottom of the table.

Also, no team in 129 years of the Football League had ever lost their first six league games without scoring - until Palace reached that landmark last week. It was the result I was expecting; we've won 4-0 a few times this season, we're doing this for fun now!

"I always try to give him confidence and show him how useful he is to the team - starting matches, coming off the bench, playing offensively, playing defensively".

- Marouane Fellaini has scored three goals from four shots in the Premier League so far in 2017-18 - more than he netted in the previous two seasons combined, two goals from 46 shots.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says he never doubted Marounane Fellaini from day one.

We won't have to wait long to see whether this United team can match the best, though, with Mourinho's side facing Liverpool, Tottenham and Chelsea in their next five Premier League fixtures after the worldwide break.

This match saw Palace equal Portsmouth's Premier League record of seven straight losses from the start of 2009/10.
