Jose Mourinho’s men doubled their advantage before the end of the first half, in the 39th minute when Wayne Rooney scored for 2-0 to seal the Red Devils away win, and maintain their unbeaten run to 23 league matches.
The Red Devils with new three points at their account, move a single point behind their city rivals Manchester City in the race for Champions League qualification, ahead of the next week’s pivotal derby clash at the Etihad Stadium.

Match Highlights Liverpool 1 Crystal Palace 2 Despite having a lead, Liverpool lost the game to the Eagles, who with another win against the Big Boys, have increased the Premier league survival.
Philippe Coutinho’s stunning free-kick gave the Reds a lead in the 24th minute, but Christian Benteke returned to haunt Liverpool by scoring double and sealing the Eagles win. Interesting fact, Benteke has scored more PL goals at Anfield as a visiting player (5), than he did as a Liverpool player (4). Benteke in the 42nd minute leveled the score for the half time draw, and he fires Crystal Palace to win at Anfield in the 74th minute.
Liverpool remain on the third, having two points more than the fourth and fifth placed sides from Manchester, but also have two games more played, meaning the race for the Champions league places is still very on, and either side could lose it. The Eagles, now sit on the 12th place, but their survival in the league is not safe yet.
