Palace complete their season with home victory over United

Palace 1-0 Man Utd

Crystal Palace ended their Premier League campaign with a 1-0 win at home to Manchester United.

Both keepers were tested in the opening period, with Palace’s Vicente Guaita denying Edinson Cavani and Hannibal Mejbri.

While United stopper David de Gea had to be alert to make saves from Wilfried Zaha and Jeffrey Schlupp.

Zaha scored what proved to be the winning goal against his former side eight minutes before half-time.

The attacker latched onto a through ball and turned Diogo Dalot before firing a low finish into the corner.

Palace did not look like letting their lead slip after capitulating in the defeat against Everton on Thursday night.

They finished the season in 12th place with a positive goal difference in the top flight for the first time since 1991.
