Manchester United moved one point behind fourth-placed Arsenal with four Premier League games remaining after a comfortable win over Crystal Palace.
Damien Delaney set United on their way when he inadvertently turned Matteo Darmian’s cross into his own net.
Julian Speroni kept Palace in the game with a series of fine saves before Darmian doubled the lead by lashing home from 20 yards.
Arsenal, who have a game in hand, entertain West Brom on Thursday.
Darmian’s first goal for United sealed a highly satisfactory win for Louis van Gaal’s side on a night thousands of United fans decided to stay away.
The attendance was 75,277 but there looked to be far fewer inside the ground while, despite victory, the atmosphere was flat.
