 Crystal Palace defeated Manchester United 4-0 at Selhurst Park

At Selhurst Park in London on May 6, 2024, Crystal Palace's Tyrick Mitchell was jubilant as he celebrated with his teammates after scoring the team's third goal against Manchester United.

In an unprecedented league match, Crystal Palace defeated Manchester United 4-0 at Selhurst Park, marking their first-ever league double over the Manchester club. Michael Olise was the standout player, netting two goals, while Jean-Philippe Mateta and Tyrick Mitchell each added one to seal the victory.


Manchester United, struggling with injuries, fielded a makeshift defence including Casemiro as centre-back. The team's defensive frailties were exploited by a dynamic Palace side, which led to United's downfall in this critical match. The loss leaves Manchester United in eighth place with 54 points from 35 games, jeopardizing their chances for European competition next season. In contrast, Palace's win solidifies their position at 14th in the league with 43 points.


The absence of key players like Bruno Fernandes, missing his first match due to injury in his 230-game stint with United, significantly impacted the team's performance. Christian Eriksen of Manchester United expressed disappointment over the match's outcome, acknowledging the team's off-day and the impact of their injury woes.


This match adds to the mounting pressures on United's manager, Erik ten Hag, as the team struggles to find form late in the season.
