Fernandes looked to have secured United the three points with a goal on the stroke of half time only for Michael Olise's stunning free kick in second half stoppage time ensured a share of the spoils.

Wout Weghorst also made his debut for the club after they paid Beşiktaş to cancel his loan spell in Turkey and move to Old Trafford from Burnley until the end of the season, with United desperately in need of a striker

The majority of the first half saw Erik ten Hag's side find it difficult to break down a resilient Palace defence with Antony in particular struggling to get the best of full back, Tyrick Mitchell.

It seemed as if tempers began to flare amongst the United ranks on the half hour mark as Antony and Fernandes were caught exchanging verbals with each other, leading to many speculating on social media.

United now prepare to face Arsenal at the weekend, where they will be without Casemiro after he was booked, taking his total tally to five, meaning he will miss out through suspension.

He did get in for a selfie with a pitch invader, though...
