League position: 16th Crystal Palace had now lost four of their last five home games in the Premier League. The Eagles had now kept a clean sheet in only one of their last 21 games in the Premier League. They had failed to score in only one of their last 14 Premier League games.

Comments:

League position: 6th Manchester United became the first team to win 250 away games in the Premier League. Only Arsenal (213) and Chelsea (207) had won more than 200. This was the second time that United had scored more than one goal in their last ten Premier League games. This was their first Premier League win in seven visits to London since a 2-1 victory at Crystal Palace on 9 May 2015.
