Crystal Palace 0-2 Manchester United: VAR frustrates Palace. United know two more wins from their final two games will be enough for a top-four finish.
Manchester United know two more wins from their final two games will be enough for a top-four finish in the Premier League after beating Crystal Palace 2-0, with the help of VAR.
Goals from Marcus Rashford (45+1) and Anthony Martial (78) at Selhurst Park took them back level on points with fourth-placed Leicester City, who are set to play United on the final day.
However, Palace were more than a match for their opponents, forcing David de Gea into five saves. And they had a goal overturned by VAR that would have made it 1-1 when Jordan Ayew was deemed to be an inch offside when turning home Wilfried Zaha’s cross.
This means seven goals which were originally awarded against United have been overturned by VAR this season, the joint-most of any side in the Premier League (alongside Southampton and Brighton).
