Crystal Palace responded in the perfect way to losing at Sheffield United last Sunday by beating the Red Devils in their own backyard. A disciplined defensive performance from Roy Hodgson’s men led to all three points, but it was no easy feat for the Eagles, as Man Utd piled on the pressure in the second half.

Jordan Ayew opened the scoring against the run of play in the first half after a flick-on from teammate Jeffrey Schlupp, as he calmly slotted the ball past David De Gea. Ayew, who received the Man of the Match award on the opening day against Everton, continued his good form, as his hold up play gave the Palace defenders breathing room throughout the game.

Tackles were flying in the second half, which eventually resulted in a penalty for the home side. Gratefully for Palace, Rashford smacked the inside of the post, giving renewed hope to the travelling supporters. Man Utd made up for this late in the game though, as Daniel James equalised in the 88th minute. A sickener for the away side.

It seemed as though all hope of a first ever Palace Premier League victory against Man Utd was lost, until Patrick van-Aanholt snatched a 93rd minute winner, as his drive went straight through the hands of De Gea.

While it was a little smash and grab (not that any Palace supporters will care), there were still a few standout individual performances that helped the Eagles on their way to making history. Here are the player ratings:
