United Drop Points At Palace

English Premier League

Result: Crystal Palace 0-0 Manchester United

Date: 31 October 2015

Venue: Selhurst Park

Manchester United are now winless in four games, after they were held to a 0-0 draw by Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

Palace nearly broke the deadlock after just 10 minute, however Yannick Bolasie rattled the crossbar, before David de Gea kept out Scott Dann's header.

Alan Pardew's men enjoyed a brighter start to the half and pegged United back in their own half for most of the opening exchanges.

Wayne Rooney went close for the Red Devils in the 25th minute when his curling free-kick from 25-yards out was saved by Wayne Hennessey.

The visitors squandered a glorious chance just before the halftime break when Anthony Martial teed up Ander Herrera, who skewed his effort wide from 12-yards out.

Palace started in the same fashion as they did in the opening 45 minutes, as the likes of Wilfired Zaha and Bolasie were major threats down the flanks.

Louis Van Gaal opted to change things after the hour mark and introduced Ashley Young and Maroune Fellaini.

Palace should have broken the deadlock in the 72nd minute when Joel Ward crossed for Yohan Cabaye in the box, but the Frenchman volleyed his wide from six-yards out.

The home side went close once again three minutes later, as Dann headed wide of the mark, before De Gea saved low to keep out Gayles stinging effort.

United push for a winner but Martial had his close range effort blocked, before Damien Delaney headed from six-yards out.

Nonetheless, the score remained the same at the full-time whistle and the point sees United remain in fourth spot.
