Did you know?

Manchester United have never lost a Premier League match against Crystal Palace in 16 previous meetings (W13 D3). The only team they’ve faced as often without losing are Charlton Athletic (W14 D2).

Man Utd have won 10 consecutive home top-flight matches against Crystal Palace, conceding only two goals in that time and both of those came in the same match.

Romelu Lukaku (six in six) is aiming to equal or surpass Andrew Cole's record tally of goals by a Man Utd player in their opening seven PL matches for the club (seven) 

Juan Mata is one away from becoming the seventh Spanish player to reach 200 PL appearances, after David De Gea, David Silva, Cesc Fabregas, Pepe Reina, Mikel Arteta and Fernando Torres.

What the managers say 

Jose Mourinho: "[Roy is an] experienced manager, [he has] good players. [there is] a long time to fight to reach their objectives.”
