Premier League: Fellaini double gives Manchester United another 4-0 win
Manchester United players celebrate Fellaini's second goal.


Manchester United earned another 4-0 win over Crystal Palace to keep the pressure on their Premier League title rivals Manchester City and Chelsea ahead of the latter pair's meeting in Saturday's late game.

The result left Palace rooted to the bottom of the table after a record seventh successive defeat without a goal to start the season.

Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini scored before halftime and when Fellaini headed in his second just after the interval, the points were made even more secure.

Romelu Lukaku's late strike at Old Trafford meant that free-scoring United have hit four goals in a game six times this season.

Victory took Jose Mourinho's side three ahead of City, having played one game more.

Palace, beaten 5-0 away by City in their last game, avoided a repetition but have become only the second team since the Premier League began to lose their first seven games. Unlike Portsmouth in 2009-10, though, they have not scored a single goal.
