Manchester United’s players are clear in their appreciation for the Old Trafford crowd’s role in our 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The Reds led 2-0 in the second half before Casemiro was dismissed, and soon after he left the field, our two-goal lead was halved, prompting a nervy ending to what had otherwise been a comfortable outing for United. 

Despite the visitors’ efforts to score an equaliser, Erik ten Hag’s side held firm and were backed audibly by a vociferous home crowd, to get over the line.

Goalscorer of the decisive goal on the afternoon, Marcus Rashford, shared a similar sentiment on social media, saying: “Without the fans cheering us over the line today, this victory isn't possible. 

“We appreciate every single one of you!
