EPL: Palace stun Man Utd with late Van Aanholt strike
Crystal Palace stunned Manchester United with an injury-time winner to record their first victory at Old Trafford since 1989.
Full-back Patrick van Aanholt scored in the 93rd minute, smashing in as the ball broke loose following Wilfried Zaha’s burst forward.
Daniel James thought he had rescued a point for United when he curled in a delightful equaliser in the 89th minute following neat build-up from Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.
But Rashford will rue striking the post from the penalty spot – the second spot-kick the Red Devils have missed this week.
Jordan Ayew had scored the opener in the first half against the run of play, latching on to Jeffrey Schlupp’s flick-on and coolly converting Palace’s first goal of the campaign, before the late drama.
