14:50 Look out for reaction elsewhere on ManUtd.com, on the homepage, and also an opportunity to vote now for United's Man of the Match at manutd.com/polls. We'll announce the result before the end of this afternoon. Bye for now and thanks for following our match blog.
14:48 That's pretty much all from the press box, as I start packing up my laptop, with the groundstaff's lawnmowers buzzing away on the pitch in front of me. The pitchforks are out too as Tony Sinclair and his team start work on the surface ahead of our next match here, on Tuesday night.
Full-time: United 2 Palace 0. The Reds pick up a deserved second win of the season, thanks to goals from strike partners Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney. A winning debut, therefore, for substitute Marouane Fellaini and league debut for Adnan Januzaj. A fine afternoon's work.
