    Crystal Palace 0-0 Man Utd

    Good point for Palace, some might argue a good point for United. Goals seem to be a problem but clean sheets clearly aren't. 

    Safe trip if you're at the game. See you soon.

    Now it's Palace on the attack and Yannick Bolasie heads over. Three minutes of stoppage time.

    Rare chance for United, as Wayne Rooney sweeps it out to Jesse Lingard, who crosses back for Anthony Martial but his shot is blocked.

    Ander Herrera lifts a cross into the Palace box from the right but it is too high for Wayne Rooney and Marouane Fellaini. Petering out this one.

  8. SUBSTITUTION

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Man Utd

    Ashley Young wins a free-kick deep in Palace's half. Yohan Cabaye is off and Mile Jedinak is on in his place. The set-piece comes to nothing but when it's worked back to Wayne Rooney he fires over from 25 yards. As you were. 

  9. 'Is a point at Palace a bad thing?'

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Man Utd

    Chris Sutton

    Former Norwich striker on Final Score

    "I think Yohan Cabaye could head that and I don't think he'd miss with a header from that range. But United are still in this game, and is a point at Palace the worst point? They haven't offered enough going forward, that's fair to say, but I don't mind Louis van Gaal biting back to Paul Scholes. That's his personality. We were critical of United conceding goals last year and they've sorted that out."  

  10. SUBSTITUTION

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Man Utd

    Anthony Martial is popping up all over the place now. Juan Mata is replaced by Jesse Lingard for Manchester United's final substitution.

    Palace are down the other end and win a corner. It's met beautifully from Scott Dann, but his header is inches wide. Moments later, Palace are on the attack again and David De Gea saves from Dwight Gayle. Opening up. 

  13. Penalty appeal

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Man Utd

    Manchester United penalty appeal. Anthony Martial crosses low from the left and Ander Herrera beats Damien Delaney and goes down with the merest of touches but referee Mike Jones is not interested. 

  14. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Man Utd

    Great chance for Yohan Cabaye. A long ball is swept out to the right wing and Joel Ward's cross picks out Cabaye perfectly but he cannot guide his effort from 10 yards out on target. 

  15. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Man Utd

    That Manchester United substitution looks like it has changed their options up front too. Anthony Martial attacks down the right but is crowded out by the Palace defence. 

  16. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Man Utd

    Ashley Young bursts down the right for United but his cross is fired out of play. The Palace fans enjoy tormenting him for that. 

  17. SUBSTITUTION

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Man Utd

    So now it's more than five hours since Manchester United have managed a goal. Is Marouane Fellaini the man to score it? He is on for Bastian Schweinsteiger. 

  18. Post update

    Bit of a baptism of fire for Ashley Young, with the winger now detailed with thwarting Wilfried Zaha at right-back.

    After being tormented in the last 10 minutes by Wilfried Zaha, Matteo Darmian is going off to be replaced by Ashley Young. 

  20. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Man Utd

    United's Juan Mata is in down the left but cannot feed it to Wayne Rooney. Palace are on the attack down the other end as Yannick Bolasie bursts down the right. The game is opening up and Ashley Young is getting ready to come on from the bench.

    This game needs a super sub. Patrick Bamford? Bakary Sako? What about Marouane Fellaini or Jess Lingard?

    Wilfried Zaha clips it around Matteo Darmian, but is hauled down by the United left-back. Definite booking.

    Yohan Cabaye is now tripped by Ander Herrera. The Palace midfielder is not happy and the pair give each other a push. Referee Mike Jones has a word and sorts it out without resorting to cards.

    A quick break from United, involving Wayne Ronney leads to a corner. The ball is headed away just before Chris Smalling can get there.

    Speaking of bookings, Chris Smalling receives a yellow card for hauling down Dwight Gayle.

    By my calculations that is now four hours and 40 minutes since Manchester United have scored a goal.

    Louis van Gaal and Ryan Giggs
  36. HALF-TIME

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Man Utd

    When you look at the average position of Juan Mata (8), United are not probing down the right at all. The Spaniard is coming inside often. 

    United average positions
  37. HALF-TIME

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Man Utd

    No doubt where United are trying to get the ball - Anthony Martial on the left wing. So it begs the question, why not stick him down the middle? I guess at least it means United are getting in behind on one flank.

    Juan Mata floats a ball from midfield over the top to Anthony Martial, which the Palace defence nod behind for a corner. That's what happens when the teenager gets a chance to threaten the middle of the pitch. He is also nearly on the end of the set-piece before it is cleared. 

  43. Post update

    After that period of United dominance, Palace are starting to knock it about again. 

  44. Post update

    Not yet it's not. Lovely play from Yohan Cabaye, who chests it down and loops the ball towards Dwight Gayle, but his effort is fairly tame as it bounces up off the pitch.

    United's Ander Herrera is starting to pull the strings behind Wayne Rooney now. The Spaniard is a very clever player on the ball and it makes an interesting battle between him and Yohan Cabaye.

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Man Utd

    David Pleat was right about Palace needing to take advantage when they were on top early on. United are starting to boss it, which you can tell from the respective volume from each set of fans. United's in voice, the Palace fans have gone very quiet.

    The visitors starting to find their rhythm now, they have weathered the early storm. One featuer you keep noticing about their play is to switch it quickly to Anthony Martial, and this time the French teenager wins a free-kick after being tripped by Martin Kelly, who goes into the book.

  76. KICK-OFF

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Man Utd

    A rousing atmosphere at Selhurst Park. Manchester United get us are under way on a beautiful afternoon in south London. Referee Mike Jones in charge.

  77. Palace's game plan for Rooney

    Crystal Palace v Man Utd (15:00 GMT)

    Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew on his plan for Wayne Rooney: “Wayne is a great player, and great players when they are down they respond and I’m sure he will be looking to show critics how good he is. We have a good game plan for him, hopefully but it’s about us today and when we get our opportunities we have to make the most of them.”

  78. 'Both sides have striking issues'

    Crystal Palace v Man Utd (15:00 GMT)

    Simon Brotherton

    MOTD commentator at Selhurst Park

    "Back-to-back goalless performances have increased the public debate about the composition of Manchester United's forward line, but Crystal Palace have striking issues of their own to contend with.

    "Surprisingly for a side as high as seventh in the table, none of their strikers have managed to score a single goal in the Premier League so far.

    "Alan Pardew's side are more than capable of making it a difficult afternoon for United, but they've lost four of the last six in the league and have managed only four goals in the process - three of them penalties from Yohan Cabaye."

  80. Defence wins you championships?

    Crystal Palace v Man Utd (15:00 GMT)

    Alan Pardew makes a good point, and it was one also made by Paul Scholes. For all their lack of spark up front, Manchester United have certainly been keeping it tight at the back. They have six clean sheets this season and have conceded only eight goals, which is the best record in the Premier League this season on both counts. 

    What was it former Liverpool defender Alan Hansen used to say? "Goals win you games, clean sheets win you championships."

  81. A cagey affair?

    Crystal Palace v Man Utd (15:00 GMT)

    Not sure if Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew has been that impressed by Louis van Gaal's methods either. 

    He says: "United's long spells of possession could threaten to drive the atmosphere into a lull, but we need to keep the fans singing along. United aren't getting as many shots off as they normally do, but defensively they're always in a good shape. I expect it to be a fairly cagey game."

    Quote Message: I understand what Paul Scholes is saying, I’ve watched United over the last year or so under Louis van Gaal and I can think of four or five games where they have shown what a good side they are. It's a bit painful at times watching them. If you get a well organised side, United struggle to break them down. I can understand Van Gaal’s argument, though, because they were in a bit of a hole when he took over. Money usually buys success and perhaps they should be playing better under Van Gaal.
  91. Them were the days

    Crystal Palace v Man Utd (15:00 GMT)

    A goal glut may be a tad optimistic, but Manchester United have not lost a Premier League game against Palace, with the Eagles' last league victory coming in a 3-0 win in 1991 when a John Salako double and another goal from Ian Wright did the damage.

    Salako is now first-team coach under Alan Pardew at Crystal Palace, and was the subject of an engaging interview with the Guardian this week.

    After goalless draws for Manchester United against Manchester City in the Premier League and in the Capital One Cup tie against Middlesbrough, which they lost on penalties, Louis van Gaal may have a tough time arguing that case with some fans. 

    But against Crystal Palace his team has an impressive record and Alan Pardew's have lost their last three games in all competitions. 

  93. Sticks and stones...

    Crystal Palace v Man Utd (15:00 GMT)

    Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes stoked the fire at Old Trafford this week by saying he would "not enjoy" playing in Louis van Gaal's side because "there is a lack of creativity and risk."

    Van Gaal responded by saying: "Sticks and stones will break my bones, but names won't hurt me." He added: "I don't agree with his opinion. I always take risks. Manchester United is always entertaining."
