Manchester United ensured that they finished the Premier League season on a high as an experimental starting eleven had too much for already-safe Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Going into the clash with the top four mathematically unachievable – and with a Europa League final looming on Wednesday – Jose Mourinho gave four reserve players their full Premier League debuts.

It was one of these, Josh Harrop, who gave the hosts the lead after just 15 minutes when he latched onto Paul Pogba’s sensational through ball to cut inside two Palace defenders and find the corner.

Pogba then turned goal-scorer shortly after when he slotted into the back of the net and, despite Christian Benteke hitting the post late on, United saw out a comfortable and morale-boosting win.
