Minute   Description
90' +2 It's all United at the moment as they patiently pass the ball around inside their own half of the pitch. It's been an incredibly comfortable afternoon for the hosts, who have had very little problems dealing with a struggling Palace side.
90' The fourth official has indicated that there will be three minutes of added time.
88' More good play sees Martial skip down the left flank after he plays a clever one-two with Lingard. He's then clattered into as he tries to cut inside and wins United a free-kick in a promising position out wide.
86' R. Lukaku has scored a goal for Manchester United! Assist by A. Martial.
GOAL! Lukaku has finally got his goal! Another clever pass from Herrera sets up Martial inside the Palace box. The Frenchman then squares a great ball across the face of goal, teeing up Lukaku to easily convert from close range.
Martial has done really well since coming on, as his pace has caused all sorts of problems for the Palace defenders. Once again, he was easily able to beat his marker with an excellent run into the left-hand side of the penalty area.
85' A hopeful lofted pass is fired up to the United penalty area and manages to pick out Ladapo, but the substitute is unable to tee up a team-mate after getting a head on the ball and instead knocks it down into the hands of De Gea.
83' Townsend tries to latch onto a poked pass down the right flank as Palace attempt to score their first league goal of the season, but, despite his best efforts, the winger can't make contact with the ball on the byline and it rolls behind for a goal-kick.
81' Martial almost makes it 4-0! A clever pass from Herrera penetrates the visitors' box and manages to pick out Martial, who storms forward and shoots but has his low effort deflected into the side netting at the near post.
80' It hasn't been the best of afternoons for Lukaku, who hasn't been as involved in the game as he would have liked. He charges into the Palace penalty area as he tries to latch onto a lofted pass forward, but his run is slightly mistimed and the linesman's flag is quickly raised.
78' Fellaini clumsily concedes a free-kick over on the right wing, gifting Palace a great opportunity to swing the ball into the box. It's Townsend who steps up and shoots, but his curling strike sails a few yards wide of the far post.
77' Ander Herrera enters the game and replaces Mata.
Ander Herrera comes on to replace Mata, who receives a standing ovation from the home fans as he makes his way off the pitch.
