Zaha's brace summed up Palace's scintillating display stealing the show from Van de Beek who scored on his debut.

The Dutchman who joined United from Ajax came off the bench in the 67th minute to pull one back for the hosts before Zaha sealed victory for Roy Hodgson's men.

The 23-year-old took issues with United's slow tempo that allowed the visitors overrun them.

"That was not good enough today. Last week in training, it looked really good. There was lots of quality and we played fast but today we played too slowly," he told MUTV.
"First match for the club, a day you want to win. It doesn’t matter how, you want to win and I’m really disappointed that we lost 3-1 at home, that’s really bad," he added.

On his part Ole Gunnar Solskjaer asked his wards to improve on the performance ahead of their next league clash against Brighton.

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how a brace from Wilfred Zaha and a well-taken goal by Andros Townsend were enough for visitors Crystal Palace to defeat Manchester United 3-1 right at the Old Trafford for the second straight season.

Palace grabbed all three points on Saturday, September 19, as they battled hard to ensure they maintain the 100% record start to their Premier League season.

United struggled in the early exchanges, but came close in the 22nd minute when McTominay tried to curl one into the far post, but it just passed wide of Guaita's goal.
