Manchester United qualified for the fourth round of the League Cup with a 3-0 victory over Crystal Palace.
The match quickly settled into a pattern, with the home team dominating possession and Crystal Palace sitting deep and looking to frustrate the home team.
Erik ten Hag’s team took the lead in the 21st minute thanks to Alejandro Garnacho. Diogo Dalot did brilliantly on the right wing to bring the ball back into the penalty area and the young Argentine striker was ready to shoot.

Six minutes later, United doubled their advantage. Mason Mount fired a shot from the outside corner that Casemiro was able to save, heading past Sam Johnstone.
It was a familiar slow start to the first half for Crystal Palace, a team coming into this match having scored 10 goals this season in the second half of the game.
Roy Hodgson’s side looked much brighter in the second half, pressing United high up the pitch and with intensity, something they failed to do in the first half.
However, Anthony Martial killed any hope Palace had of a comeback when he made it 3-0 after 55 minutes to put United in control. Casemiro fired a stunning shot towards the far post and Martial was able to beat Johnstone.

Jean-Philippe Mateta almost pulled one back for Palace in the 68th minute, but his effort was brilliantly saved by Andre Onana.
The arrival of Eberechi Eze has brought some spark to his side, with the 25-year-old getting into good positions and finding Mateta on a number of occasions, but in reality it was too little, too late for a Palace side that never really got off the ground. went. Old Trafford.
Both teams’ attention now turns to the weekend, where this match will be repeated in the Premier League.
