Rangnick was in the crowd watching on as Man Utd beat Arsenal 3-2 on Thursday, bringing the Michael Carrick caretaker era to an end. It was a pretty successful three-match spell for Carrick with Man Utd undefeated, beating Villarreal and Arsenal while drawing with Premier League leaders Chelsea. The win over Arsenal moved Man Utd up to seventh in the league, now just three points behind fourth-placed West Ham United, a good turnaround considering where they appeared to be going under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. But in his first press conference as Man Utd boss, Rangnick revealed he had spoken to Solskjaer before officially taking the role to get the inside information on the club.

His first game sees Man Utd take on a Crystal Palace side currently going through a tough patch after a positive start to the season. The Eagles have lost their past two Premier League matches and are winless in three, to sit six points clear of the relegation zone (albeit as high up as 11th). Palace’s last two defeats came at the hands of teams below them in the table too, beaten 2-1 by Aston Villa and then 1-0 by Leeds thanks to a late penalty.

Man Utd vs Crystal Palace: Match Stats

Bruno Fernandes returned to the scoresheet in the win over Arsenal, extending his excellent record for Man Utd. Since making his debut in February 2020, Fernandes has been directly involved in 79 goals for Man Utd across all competitions (45 goals, 34 assists), more than any other player for a Premier League club during that time.

Man Utd finally scored at home in the Premier League on Thursday, ending a run of conceding nine goals at Old Trafford without reply. However, they have also conceded in 15 consecutive home games across all competitions, their second-longest ever run after a 21-game streak that ended in March 1959.
