Manchester United picked up a crucial victory as they defeated Crystal Palace 2-1 at Selhurst Park. A first half Juan Mata penalty and a Marouane Fellaini header sandwiched a Jason Puncheon free kick as the Red Devils all-but secured a return to the Champions League after a year out. After Liverpool's draw with Chelsea, Brendan Rodgers' men's hugely inferior goal difference means they need a miracle to oust United.

Five transfer targets for United

Red Rants at related • 0 views
Over the past two seasons just about anyone and everyone has been linked with a potential move to Old Trafford. In his first summer transfer window Louis Van Gaal spent nearly £150 million on new talent, bringing in six players who have all enjoyed periods of good form this season when not injured. Although the two big name signings of Radamel Falcao and Angel Di Maria have failed to live up to expectations, Van Gaal has got the most out of his less hyped signings, like Daley Blind and Ander Herrera and Marcos Rojo.

Mata’s double delight.
