In a game to remember at Selhurst Park, Crystal Palace won big, 4-0 against Manchester United, making it their first ever league win both home and away over the Red Devils. Michael Olise was the star, scoring two goals in a match where Palace outplayed a weak United defense.

Mainoo and Olise

Right from the start, Palace were on it. Olise hit the first goal 12 minutes in with a neat shot, taking advantage of United’s shaky defense, which had midfielder Casemiro playing out of his usual spot and as a center-back. This early goal shaped the whole game, with Palace looking strong and United not in sync.

Even with United trying to get back in the game, including a goal from Casemiro that was called off, Palace kept up their edge. Jean-Philippe Mateta added another goal just before the break, getting past Jonny Evans to net his ninth goal with Palace’s new boss, Oliver Glasner, watching.

The second half was no better for United. Tyrick Mitchell was in the perfect spot to hit in a third goal for Palace. The home team’s smooth play and sharp attacks were too much for United’s defense, which had trouble all match.

Olise’s second goal made things worse for United, and a late hit from Edouard almost pushed it to five, but the post stopped it. This loss puts United in a tough spot, hoping for European play next year, while it makes sure Palace stays in the middle of the pack with a big win.

This adds to a hard year for United, with 13 league losses – a record they didn’t want. Missing key player like Bruno Fernandes, who sat out his first game hurt, hit them hard. On the other hand, Palace is doing well under Glasner, playing strong and together.

With the season ending soon, United’s boss Erik ten Hag is under a lot of pressure to get better results, while Palace can be proud of a show that proved their worth under new guidance.

The 4-0 result speaks to Palace’s sharp play and United’s troubles, making it a game Palace fans won’t forget. This outstanding result will definitely boost Palace’s confidence for the upcoming season.
