Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho glad fans now see Marouane Fellaini differently

Manchester United once again cruised to a comfortable Premier League win on Saturday, this time taking three points against Crystal Palace.

City must beat Chelsea to regain top spot from their Manchester rivals on goal difference. Substitutes: Jesse Lingard (for Mkhitaryan, 66) 6, Anthony Martial (for Rashford, 72) 7, Ander Herrera (for Mata, 77) 7.

Praise must also be given to Marouane Fellaini, of course, but Mourinho's ability to keep every member of his squad happy is remarkable, and when you see the contributions that fringe players are now making to this Man Utd team, it's an exciting time for all involved.

He really should have found the net earlier, when he fired wide with the goal at his mercy on 71 minutes, but his easy finish with four minutes remaining takes him to 15 goals for club and country from 12 games.

Later, in the 35 minute of the game, Marouane Fellaini volleyed in Ashley Young's cross to double United's lead.

In his nine appearances for United since joining them from Everton over the summer, the Belgium global had scored 10 times, including a brace in Wednesday's 4-1 Champions League victory over CSKA Moscow.

Jose Mourinho makes just the one change following the slender 1-0 victory at Southampton in the Premier League last weekend, with Eric Bailly dropping to the bench as Smalling returns to partner Phil Jones in the heart of the United defence. We are playing well, not for 90 minutes, as sometimes we have periods where we lose our consistency in what I call quality with high intensity, but it is hard to do that for 90 minutes after a Champions League game.

In two key games at the wrong end of the table, West Ham United had a late win over Swansea City to move above them but Bournemouth were held at home by Leicester City.

Fellaini, while never flashy, has been an important role player in holding possession, scoring goals from set pieces and crosses and even does a good job of pressuring the opposition's back line.

Tottenham have won six of their last seven matches in all competitions and Pochettino said: "Harry Kane is in an fantastic moment".

This is the first time that Marcus Rashford has assisted two goals in a single game for @ManUtd.

He opened the scoring with a clinical strike in the ninth minute and Ben Davies added Tottenham's second seven minutes later.

"We can take some things from this game that weren't too bad in my opinion".

Japan defender Maya Yoshida equalised for Southampton with a blistering volley in the 75th minute, but Stoke substitute Crouch grabbed the 85th-minute victor.

Jose Mourinho: "It's just four matches at home".
