Man United pile more pressure on Hodgson

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

The Eagles lost their seventh consecutive Premier League game on Saturday as they succumbed to a 4-0 defeat at Manchester United.

United now tops the Premier League table with a 6-0-1 record. This has seen Fellaini be more involved in the attack this season, and it has paid off.

"I feel good, I feel confident and I am there to put the goals away". They have no wins and no goals, and look like rivalling Derby County for the worst Premier League season ever.

Fellaini isn't the only one benefiting from this partnership, as Matic looks to be enjoying it as well.

Yet, both are still here and, more importantly, thriving. There was little really in this latest defeat for goalless, rock-bottom Palace - playing most of the contest with Bakary Sako as a makeshift striker, in the absence of the injured Christian Benteke - to suggest they have anything other than a long, hard battle for survival ahead of them.

When news of the severity of Paul Pogba's injury came out, many United fans would have been fretting over the team's form.

It goes without saying that Marcus Rashford has been fantastic this season.

Saudi king lets women drive
But by lifting the driving ban, the regime has crossed a big threshold, both in the eyes of many Saudis and the world. The decision is also in line with the Saudi king's vision of Saudi Arabia 2030 or the National Transformation Program.

Jose Mourinho's side created a multitude of opportunities to record their fourth late on.

Two things can be directly attributed to his stellar play. Lukaku kick from the middle of the penalty box just hit the goalpost, while kick Martial can be blocked goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey. Having a big, strong forward up top to hold up play and bag goals has taken the pressure off Rashford to produce consistently, and he's thrived because of it.

Fellaini owed his second goal to Rashford's brilliant set-piece delivery. It was argued over the a year ago leading up to this season whether Rashford would continue to try and push for a position in the side as a striker or if he would play on the wing.

Lukaku had a quiet outing, but should have scored when he took advantage of an advantage from referee Mike Dean to run into the area and send a left-footed strike inches wide when he appeared destined to find the far corner.

His stellar play, speed and creativity have been the bane of every full-back Rashford comes up against.

The sequence occurred just three minutes into the Premier League matchup and led to United's first goal early in the game. He proved it when scoring twice against Burton Albion in the Carabao Cup earlier this month, taking his total to six for the season.

He had never properly fit-in since his arrival from Everton, not helped by the fact that he was the "poster boy" for the failure of David Moyes" time in charge of the club as the only signing in the first "post-Fergie' transfer window.
