Van Persie, Rooney goals down Crystal Palace

Share

A Robin van Persie penalty helped Manchester United beat Crystal Palace and give manager David Moyes a first home league win in charge of the club.

 

Van Persie slotted in a 45th-minute spot-kick after Kagisho Dikgacoi was adjudged to have fouled Ashley Young.

 

Dikgacoi was red carded, with Palace unhappy at the decision and arguing the offence took place outside the area.

 

Marouane Fellaini came on after 62 minutes to make his United bow before Wayne Rooney scored from a free-kick.
