Crystal Palace vs Manchester United, summary: Olise freekick, goals, stats & highlights | Premier League 2022-23
Crystal Palace vs Manchester United: as it happened
OK, folks. That's all from me (Joe) tonight.
Thanks for sticking around for the coverage of the game.
We've got more tomorrow - it's Spurs vs Man City!
Wow, what an end to that game.
It was not a Premier League classic and won't appear on the DVD cover of the highlights of the season, but that Olise strike was worth waiting for.
Manchester United's winning run comes to an end and Palace's stadium is still rocking - that could be a huge boost for them.
And that's all!
WAN-BISSAKA WHAT A TACKLE
Zaha was through and the defender went to ground in the final minute to save the result.
GARNACHO'S STRIKE IS SAVED BY GUAITA
AND RASHFORD IS SO CLOSE
Manchester United win a corner.
What an amazing strike.
His left foot curled the ball over the wall and away from the outstreched De Gea who had no chance!
WHAT A GOAL FROM OLISE
HE HIT THE BALL SUPERBLY AND IT FIRED OFF THE CROSSBAR AND INTO THE GOAL
4 added minutes
Free kick for Crystal Palace on the right; Olise is stood over the ball, ready to cross in.
We're into the last minute at Selhurst Park
Zaha gets the ball caught under his feet and Palace miss out on a great chance to attack...
Rashford makes it into the box and dances on the ball before losing it to Clyne.
3 minutes to go.
Zaha hits a speculative shot from the left side of the box which flies high into the stands.
Manchester United have just played 10 consecutive passes from Lisandro to Varane. We're at that level of intensity from ten Hag's team.
Erik ten Hag is not happy with Casemiro for that card...
Casemiro booked for a clear challenge on Zaha.
He will miss the game at the weekend against Arsenal.
Palace are pushing for the equaliser, but can't seem to work the ball well enough to reach the final third.
A series of intelligently won free-kicks from Manchester United serve to break up the play as we enter the final 10 minutes...
HUGE SAVE FROM DE GEA
Guehi gets a huge head on the dipping ball but De Gea's reflexes were quicker than a caffeine-filled Bumblebee
Palace win a corner and the crowd screams in joy.
A lovely ball from Eze met Olise on the right whose cross was blocked.
McTominay is being a huge pest already, and he's only been on for a few minutes.
The referee is having a word with him after he fouled Zaha.
A penalty shout for the away side as McTominay goes down in the box...
Edouard and Doucoure OFF
Schlupp and Ayew ON
Weghorst and Antony OFF
Garnacho and McTominay ON
Garnacho and McTominay preparing to come on...
Lisandro Martínez has been quietly excellent on the ball tonight. Time after time he has skipped pas this marker and played a lovely pass into the midfield third of the pitch.
Edouard goes down in box like a dying swan. The referee waves it away. Nothing in it.
Antony just played a perfectly placed chopped pass on the volley (putting his left leg behind his right). It came to nothing, but it was so nice I had to comment.
Rashford fires a shot over the bar. High and wide and into the face of a fan in the stands.
Zaha manages to hit another cross in from the right but it's poorly weighted and Shaw blocks the ball.
Manchester United's energy levels have dropped significantly.
Zaha's rifled cross pings off the heel of a Manchester United defender and could have gone anywhere.
It went to Will Hughes, who had a shot only his mother would clap him for.
Palace are looking to control the ball more, especially with the addition of Eze into the team. He and Olise have already made some lovely connections.
Some joker has run on the pitch, taken a photo with Casemiro, and left.
The security guards were nowhere to be seen...
This half is definitely more disputed: it's a lot more evenly balanced than the first 45 minutes.
And it's entirely down to Crystal Palace, they have stepped up the rhythm.
Eze is getting ready to come on. Yipee!
De Gea catches a looping ball after a few terrible crosses are attempted by various players. Chance gone.
Edouard's touch lets him down after a good ball from Mateta put him through.
Corner for the home team.
Antony moans to the referee as he skies a shot miles over the bar. He thinks somebody in a Palace shirt got a touch.
Crystal Palace have definitely started brighter this half...
Erik ten Hag has got out of his seat and is looking sternly across the pitch.
Zaha plays a poor cross from the left that flies over everyone. Manchester United clear the ball away.
Huge groans from the crowd as Antony rifles a shot from close range into the Will Hughes', erm, special zone. Everybody felt that.
No changes at half-time for either side
Here we go for the second half!
We're almost ready for the second half...
CRY 37-63 MNU
CRY 3-10 MNU
CRY 1-3 MNU
CRY 150-287 MNU
CRY 48-68 MNU
Bruno's the difference at the break.
Let's see if we get more goals (and more chances) in the second half...
So, that wasn't a classic half of Premier League football.
Before the goal, it was actually Palace who had come the closest, with the Edouard shot that was tipped onto the bar by De Gea. But apart from that, it's been all Manchester United.
They've dominated the game both on and off the ball, and have looked utterly at home throughout the game so far. There have been back-heel flicks and moments of skill which highlights the confidence running through this side now that are on their way to continue their incredible winning streak.
And that's all for the first half!
Bruno received the ball inside the box from an Eriksen cross.
He had time to take a touch, get out his deck chair, make a cup of tea, look up and whack the ball into the top right corner. In conclusion, terrible backwards defending from Palace.
Manchester United are content to keep the ball for the last few minutes of the half. And Crystal Palace look in no rush to take it off them...
3 minutes added.
Antonee Richards makes a sublime challenge on Antony who had collected the ball in his own half and set off like Taz from the Looney Tunes...
My eyes nearly fell out of my mouth! What a hit and what a save...
EDOUARD GOT THE BALL ON THE EDGE OF THE BOX AND HIT A THUNDEROUS SHOT TO THE TOP CORNER.
SAVED BY DE GEA ONTO THE BAR!
CRYSTAL PALACE HIT THE BAR
Rashford bends a free-kick just wide. He didn't go for the Ronaldo-esque knuckle-ball, instead trying to Ward-Prowse it with his instep.
Manchester United's first shot on target comes from Antony, who hits a weak shot from the edge of the box. Easy-peasy for Guaita, who laughs in the face* of that type of shots.
*opinion, not information
Rashford has dropped right back to the left of midfield to be next to Eriksen, who is the player making things happen so far.
The home side are sat securely in their defensive block.
6 shots for Manchester United so far, 0 on target.
0 shots for Crystal Palace.
Palace get away on the counter with Zaha and the winger cleverly buys a foul on halfway to give his side a breather.
Wan-Bissaka's cross finds Rashford but the player takes too long to get the ball out from under his feet and loses possession.
Weghorst has his first chance in a Manchester United shirt: a looping header from a cross that flies over the bar.
Antony breaks down the right but his pass doesn't find Bruno.
The two players immediately break into an argument on the pitch, to the sheer delight of the Palace fans.
A low, driven ball almost finds Weghorst but Guehi slips in to clear it away. The striker would have been on his own against Guaita...
Palace have their first touches after a while but immediately give up possession with a long ball straight to Luke Shaw.
Antony tries a lob on Guaita but his effort goes wide.
Will Hughes snatches the ball from Rashford as the Manchester winger had slipped into the central space... that was a vital stop.
Now Bruno Fernandes is limping...
Lisandro is back up and running with a black headband on...
Lisandro is down with a head injury.
Both Lindelof and Maguire are warming up.
CHANCE FOR LUKE SHAW!
Some prolonged play goes from left to right before being swung in and Shaw sliced almost perfectly at the bouncing ball that zipped just wide.
Almost a golazo.
Some nice work from Crystal Palace ends with an Olise cross from the right that sweeps over everyone's heads. If only they had Weghorst.
Better football from the home side.
Palace launch a counter down the right with Clyne and Olise which causes the stadium to rumble...
Manchester United defend easily with Shaw and Rashford.
Never mind, he was offside.
The winger got in behind the defence and definitely interfered with play as he took the ball and had a shot towards the goalkeeper.
RASHFORD WITH A HUGE, HUGE CHANCE!
Eek. A scary moment for Palace as the ball is loose inside their area.
Bruno broke down the left and his cross was spilled by Guaita.
A fantastic ball from Bruno to Rashford in the space behind causes the Palace players to scramble back in a hurry.
Guehi gets down well to tackle the in-form winger as he makes his way into the box.
Edouard gets the ball on the edge of the box but Lisandro defends well, clearing the ball away.
Both teams are putting a lot of pressure on each other in off-ball moments.
Great work from Will Hughes to win the ball from Casemiro and the ball is played forward on the floor towards Edouard, but Varane covers well.
The couple of times Palace have had the ball, it's been to lump it into the air.
Eriksen controls a clearance, takes a touch and pops it off to the centre-back. Ultimate calmness.
A lot of play coming down the right in the opening couple of minutes; Antony getting some early touches.
Manchester United play down the right with Wan-Bissaka but Palace defend well
And we're off!
Palace kick us off...
Here are the lineups again:
Crystal Palace XI: Guaita; Clyne, Richards, Guehi, Mitchell; Hughes, Doucoure; Olise, Mateta, Zaha; Edouard
Man Utd XI: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Martinez, Shaw; Eriksen, Casemiro; Antony, Fernandes, Rashford; Weghorst
Here we go!
The players are on their way out of the tunnel now...
Selhurst Park is rocking...
The ground has filled to the brim and is making a great noise, despite the fierce cold.
I can see somebody eating a bowl of soup, stood up.
Weghorst's reasoning behind choosing 27:
"Of course, I looked into the ones that are free or available. Two and seven will make nine, of course – a striker's number. I had a feeling with it", Weghorst told the club website.
Now, you didn't think you'd be hearing Iván Zamorano's name on the live coverage tonight, did you? But yes, I'm getting Zamorano vibes from Weghorst's reasoning.
Half an hour to go!
Here's a look at Palace's most recent form.
It's not great, but the odd win now and again will, as I said before, just keep them ticking along and away from the pack below that are fighting like wild dogs.
Rashford's post-World Cup form
It's quite something, that's for sure. Let's see if he can keep it up tonight!
Crystal Palace starting XI:
As for The Eagles, one of my personal favourites, Eze, starts on the bench. Ex-Man Utd player Zaha makes the eleven.
Keep an eye on Olise, a lovely attacking midfielder, who also starts.
Who wants to buy Manchester United?
It turns out that Manchester United are for sale.
Yes, the Glazer family have finally decided to call time on their tenure as majority shareholders and are reportedly looking ahead to accept potential bids.
But how much does the club cost?
And who would have the money to bid for a football club?
Don't worry, I got you.
The players have arrived at the stadium...
I told you it was a lovely stadium. Just wait until it's full!
45 minutes to go.
Lisandro Martínez returns
The World Cup winner returns to the starting XI today.
And it's his birthday! Yes, Lisandro Martínez turns 25 today.
And the answer is...
It's Wilfried Zaha!
Yes, the winger was at Manchester United between 2013 and 2015, where he played just twice and scored 0 goals.
Which current Crystal Palace player played for Manchester United between 2013 and 2015?

Manchester United stats:
A 10th straight win in all competitions would be their longest run in 14 years.
Marcus Rashford has scored in 7 consecutive games for Manchester United, only Ronaldo has done that for the club before, in 2008, back when he was, erm, good...
Christian Eriksen has been directly involved in seven goals in 11 Premier League appearances against Crystal Palace, scoring three and assisting four times.
Crystal Palace Stats:
Crystal Palace beat Manchester United 1-0 on the final day of last season, and they are looking to win back-to-back games against Manchester United for the first time in their history.
Palace have lost four of their last five league matches, and have failed to score in all of them.
Crystal Palace are winless in all nine league games this season against teams currently in the top half of the table (3 draws, 6 defeats).
Manchester United will play in white
It's their away shirt for the year, with a retro collar. Very fancy.
It's better than the green one, that's for sure.

Crystal Palace vs Manchester United: times, how to watch on TV, stream online, Premier League
Of course I would love for you to stay, but if you're interested in how to watch the game from the US, then Fidel's got all the information you could possibly want to know.
How things look for Erik ten Hag's side:
Well, pretty toasty and warm.
They beat Manchester City 2-1 at Old Trafford at the weekend, putting them just one point behind their city rivals. Is there a title challenge? Well, there's the slight possibililty, although it requires more of an Arsenal collapse than a Manchester United resurgence at the minute.
Nevertheless, we've seen them win every game since coming back after the World Cup, and Marcus Rashford has turned into a player remarkably similar to that one they had before. Oh, what was his name? You know the one, the Portuguese winger...
How things look for Palace:
Crystal Palace are, right now, about as mid-table as possible. OK, I can hear you say that technically it's Chelsea, who are 10th out of 20 teams, but bear with me here.
They have 22 points, which puts them 5 points above Leeds United, in 14th. Below Leeds, there are only 2 points separating them from 20th position (Southampton). So, those extra points Palace have picked up are vital to keeping them away from the relegation fight, that extends it long neck up the table like an angry snake.
Rashford's substitute tonight?
The man who might substitute Rashford, should be not be available, could be winger Alejandro Garnacho. The player has the second-highest assist rate per 90 minutes in the league this season (behind Leeds United's Joe Gelhardt), but it seems as though his commitment to Manchester United may be questionable.
Will Wout Weghorst play in Manchester United’s Premier League game against Manchester City?
But every cloud has a silver lining, and Wout Weghorst is a huge Cumulonimbus cloud, and one who is available for tonight's game.
Manchester United: team news
As for Erik ten Hag's side, Anthony Martial and goal machine Marcus Rashford are both doubts for the game.
Diogo Dalot and Jadon Sancho remain unavailable.
Crystal Palace: team news
One major blow for Patrick Vieira's side is the absence of Joachim Andersen, at centre-back. The defender went off injured against Chelsea at the weekend; James Tomkins is thought to be the replacement.
The good news is that Andersen is the only major doubt for the game, with the manager believed to have the rest of his squad to pick from, barring any late exclusions.
Welcome to the AS USA live coverage of Crystal Palace vs Manchester United!
What a game we have tonight.
It's Joe here, and I'll be guiding you through all the action at Selhurst Park, one of my favourite stadiums in the whole of England. It's normally pretty loud, and tonight should be no different.
