Man Utd v Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace hero Patrick Van Aanholt has revealed why the Eagles were able to hand Manchester United their first loss of the new Premier League season.

Manchester United were beaten 2-1 at home by a stubborn Crystal Palace team.

After the game, Dutch international left-back Van Aanholt, who scored the winning goal said that his team picked up because they played really well against hosts Manchester United.

Former Chelsea defender Patrick Van Aanholt scored the winning goal of the game in added time after capitalising on a mistake from underfire Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

Crystal Palace were well organised from the blast of the whistle and their goals came as a result of mistakes from Manchester United players.

The Eagles took a shock lead at the Theatre of Dreams after Ghanaian international Jordan Ayew pounced on a mistake from Victor Lindelof in the first half.

Crystal Palace midfielder Luka Milovojevic handed Manchester United a lifeline when he fouled fellow midfielder Scott McTominay in the box.

Marcus Rashford missed the resulting penalty as hit the inside of the post with his spot kick.

Manchester United went on to score an equaliser through a moment of brilliance from summer signing Daniel James before Pogba’s mistake led to concession of the three points to Crystal Palace.
