Josh Harrop scored on his debut as the youngest Manchester
United side in the club‚Äôs Premier League history defeated Crystal
Palace 2-0 at Old Trafford.
Three days before the Europa League final against Ajax, Jose
Mourinho made nine changes on his 250th game as a manager in
England‚Äôs top flight, with Demetri Mitchell, Harrop and substitute
Angel Gomes given United debuts.
And United impressed in a first-half performance that proved
enough to secure a comfortable victory prior to their season-
defining trip to Stockholm.
Harrop relished opening the scoring with a fine finish after being
set up by Paul Pogba, who then quickly doubled United‚Äôs lead on
his return from compassionate leave following the death of his
Pogba and Jesse Lingard were both substituted before half-time as
Mourinho took no chances ahead of an Ajax match that could give
them a second major trophy of the season and seal a place in next
season‚Äôs Champions League.
Palace edged a quiet second half, Christian Benteke hitting the
post with a header as they failed to find a way back into the game.
The hosts finish the season sixth in the table on 69 points, while
Palace drop to 14th on 41.
