Thanks for joining us for live coverage of Crystal Palace's 1-0 victory over Manchester United in the Premier League.
The three points for the hosts means that they finish the season in 12th position, and can look forward to another season of Premier League football next campaign. For the Red Devils, they cling on to sixth place and Europa League qualification by virtue of West Ham's defeat to Brighton and Hove Albion. This marks the last game of Rangnick's tenure, and new manager Erik Ten Hag has a big summer ahead of him as he tries to restore United to their former glories.
Referee Atkinson blows the whistle on the 90 minutes and both of these team's seasons, with the hosts running out 1-0 victors. Both sides had chances in the first half, until Palace took the lead through their talisman Zaha after 37 minutes. He showed great strength to hold off Dalot before weaving into the box, and drilling into the bottom left corner past De Gea. United hunted for an equaliser, and nearly found one when Mejbri sent a dink over Guaita from just outside the box. However, the Spanish goalkeeper did well to scramble back and tip it over and retain his side's lead. The visitors went close again when Fernandes picked out Garnacho at the back post, but the youngster couldn't turn it in and the Eagles held on for a 1-0 win.
90' + 6' A cross is headed out to McTominay, but he blazes his half-volley well over the crossbar.
90' + 5' Mata sends a late free kick into the box, but Andersen heads it away and that might be that for United.
90' + 4' Elanga swings in a low cross, but it evades everybody and goes out for a throw-in on the other side.
90' There is going to be four minutes of additional time.
90' Goalscorer Zaha and Lindelof are both down with head injuries after a coming together.
Bruno Fernandes
Yellow Card
90' Fernandes receives a late booking for dissent.
88' West Ham are losing at Brighton, so it looks as if Manchester United's place in next season's Europa League is going to be safe regardless of the result here.
86' A Gallagher corner is headed clear by Maguire at the near post, and another delivery from the on-loan Chelsea man is dealt with as well.
V. Lindelöf
Yellow Card
84' Lindelof pulls back Eze, and is booked by referee Atkinson.
J. McArthur
W. Hughes
83' McArthur comes on for Hughes.
82' Fernandes drills a low delivery across the face of goal, but Garnacho can't turn it in at the back post.
81' Palace have kept a clean sheet in each of their last four home league games. Can they make it five and hold on for a win here?
Alejandro Garnacho
Diogo Dalot
79' Dalot comes off for Garnacho.
E. Eze
O. Édouard
79' Eze is on in place of Edouard.
78' Mata pulls the ball back to Elanga in the box, but his first-time shot towards the bottom left corner flies wide for a goal-kick.
77' Maguire goes down in the box under a challenge from Ward, but the referee waves away his protests for a penalty.
S. Shoretire
75' Shoretire comes on for Fred.
74' A Mata corner finds McTominay in loads of space at the back post, but his header is poor and straight at Guaita. He really should've done better there.
73' Andersen gets his head to a Mata cross but sends it back towards his own goal. It's nervy momentarily for Guaita, but ends up nestling on top of the net.
72' Zaha picks out Schlupp with a cross, but his flick goes wide of the left post.
70' Gallagher curls the free kick over, but Maguire rises highest to nod it away from danger.
69' Zaha wins a free kick on the left-hand side, after a tussle with McTominay. Gallagher is standing over the set-piece, in a threatening position.
C. Kouyaté
J. Rak-Sakyi
67' Rak-Sakyi makes way for Kouyate.
65' United have lost their last five away league games, and will need to change something if they want that unwanted run to end here.
O. Édouard
Yellow Card
63' Edouard is cautioned after clipping the heels of McTominay in midfield.
H. Mejbri
62' Mejbri makes way for Mata.
61' Mejbri sees the ball squared to him on the edge of the box by Fred, before trying to dink an effort over Guaita. The Spanish goalkeeper does well to tip it over for a corner.
60' Gallagher finds himself in acres of space outside the box, but he drags his shot well wide of the right post.
Diogo Dalot
Yellow Card
59' Dalot is booked after a very late slide on Gallagher.
57' Zaha shows some quick feet in the box to make space for a cross, but it comes off Edouard and goes behind for a goal-kick.
56' Hughes swings in a corner from the right, though Maguire is able to head it away before any Palace player can get to it.
54' Ward gets in with a vital challenge to take the ball off the toes of Mejbri, when it looked as if the youngster was going to get a shot away at goal.
52' Even with a victory here, the visitors are going to finish with their lowest ever Premier League points tally.
50' Brighton have equalised against West Ham at the Amex Stadium, and it puts Manchester United back into sixth.
48' Fernandes curls a free-kick over the wall and hits the target, but Guaita is easily able to shuffle to his right and catch the Portueguese midfielder's effort.
46' The hosts get us back underway for the second period.
With Manchester United losing here and West Ham United winning, it means that as it stands the Hammers will be playing in the Europa League next season ahead of the Red Devils. Can the visitors change that?
The referee blows the whistle to bring the first half to an end, with the scoreline 1-0 to the hosts. United went close early on, when a Cavani sidefooted effort looked to have wrong-footed Guaita, until the goalkeeper managed to shift his momentum and push it away. Zaha and Schlupp then had shots saved by De Gea, before the Palace wide-man put his side into the lead on 37 minutes. He outmuscled Dalot, before shifting onto his right foot in the box. The former Red Devils man then drilled into the bottom corner to make it 1-0 at the break.
45' The referee has added on one minute of additional time at the end of this first half.
H. Mejbri
Yellow Card
44' Mejbri receives a yellow card for a foul on Zaha, and then a bit of a tussle as they both lifted themselves off the turf.
W. Hughes
Yellow Card
43' Hughes is the first player to go in referee Martin Atkinson's book, after cynically bringing down Fred in midfield.
41' Fernandes fires a low shot into a crowded box, but it's blocked away from danger before it can reach Guaita's goal.
39' West Ham United have just taken the lead away at Brighton and Hove Albion, and as it stands they will move into sixth above Man United. Could the Red Devils be playing Europa Conference League football next season?
W. Zaha
37' Palace take the lead!!! Zaha outmuscles Dalot and then cuts onto his right foot inside the area. He fires a low shot into the bottom left corner past De Gea and makes it 1-0 against his former team.
34' Ward is down after a Fernandes pass hit him in the groin. He looks in some pain here but will be okay to continue.
32' No side has won their final game of a Premier League season more often than the Red Devils, and they're unbeaten in their last 11 when playing their last game away from Old Trafford.
30' The two teams have gotten closer in recent minutes, but haven't yet been able to break the deadlock.
28' De Gea makes another decent save down low, to save a powerful Schlupp shot with his legs.
26' Zaha has Palace's first attempt on goal of the contest, with a low shot from the left of the box. However, De Gea is able to save it with relative ease and United can clear.
25' So close! Elanga charges towards goal and gets into the penalty area before sliding the ball across goal for Fernandes. It's agonisingly just out of reach for Fernandes, and the ball goes behind for a goal-kick.
23' Guaita's tip away from Cavani is the closest either side have come so far. Who will create the next big chance?
21' The Eagles have never lost their last game of a top-flight season when playing at home.
19' Ward gets his head to Gallagher's free-kick but can't get over it, and his header flies behind for a goal-kick.
18' Maguire clatters into Gallagher on the sideline, and Palace will have a free-kick in a good crossing position. The winner of it is standing over it ready to deliver.
16' A Gallagher free-kick is nodded back across goal by Ward, but Fernandes is able to head it behind for a corner.
14' Great save!!! Fernandes shoots from distance, but his effort deflects off Ward. It comes to Cavani, and his sidefoot at goal flicks off Andersen. It appears to wrongfoot Guaita, but he manages to stop his momentum to tip it away.
12' Edouard looks to latch onto a through ball from Zaha, but there's too much on it and the ball runs through to De Gea.
10' Neither side has been able to create a real clear-cut chance as of yet.
8' Cavani cuts onto his left foot in the box and lays the ball back to Fernandes. Fernandes' shot is then blocked before Mejbri takes a tumble as he ran onto the loose ball. However, he is judged to be offside and the hosts have a free-kick.
7' With victory here, the Red Devils will complete the league double over Crystal Palace for the first time since 2017/18.
5' The visitors need a win here to seal their place in the Europa League next season, and have had a couple of crosses dealt with as they look for an early goal.
3' The Eagles have never won a Premier League home game against Manchester United in 12 attempts, drawing four and losing eight.
1' The referee blows the whistle and we are underway.
The two teams make their way onto the pitch ahead of kick-off.
Visiting boss Ralf Rangnick goes with four alterations from the 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Brighton and Hove Albion, with Maguire returning to the back four as Varane drops to the bench. Fred replaces Nemanja Matic in midfield while Cavani and Mejbri start over Cristiano Ronaldo and Mata.
Home manager Patrick Vieira makes five changes from the defeat at Everton, with Guaita preferred to Butland in goal while Ward comes in for Guehi in the back four. Gallagher starts in midfield for Eze, and Edouard and Rak-Sakyi start ahead of Ayew and Mateta in the front three.
SUBS: Charlie Savage, Eric Bailly, Raphael Varane, Tom Heaton, Shola Shoretire, Alvaro Fernandez, Juan Mata, Alejandro Garnacho, Phil Jones.
MANCHESTER UNITED (4-2-3-1): David De Gea; Diogo Dalot, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Alex Telles; Scott McTominay, Fred; Anthony Elanga, Bruno Fernandes, Hannibal Mejbri; Edinson Cavani.
SUBS: Martin Kelly, Eberechi Eze, Luka Milivojevic, Cheikhou Kouyate, Jean-Philippe Mateta, Jordan Ayew, Christian Benteke, James McArthur, Jack Butland.
CRYSTAL PALACE (4-3-3): Vicente Guaita; Nathaniel Clyne, Joel Ward, Joachim Andersen, Tyrick Mitchell; Conor Gallagher, Will Hughes, Jeffrey Schlupp; Jesuran Rak-Sakyi, Odsonne Edouard, Wilfried Zaha.
The visitors meanwhile are in sixth and need three points in their last game to confirm their place in the Europa League next season, after losing three of their last five matches. Their inferior goal difference to West Ham’s means that the Hammers could leapfrog them into the Europa League spots if the Red Devils slip up here.
The hosts come into the final day of the season in 13th position, but can finish the campaign in the top half with a victory here and results elsewhere going their way. They lost 3-2 at Everton in midweek but will look to finish with a flourish here.
