League position: 4th Manchester United had now still to lose to Crystal Palace in the Premier League (ten wins and two draws). This victory ended a run of three league defeats for the Red Devils. The last time they lost four consecutive matches within the same season was in 1961. United had now gone seven Premier League games without keeping a clean sheet.
