Last season’s League Cup holders Manchester United made a confident start to their defense of the trophy with a classic 3-0 win at home to Crystal Palace in the third round of the competition.
At Old Trafford, the “Red Devils” opened the scoring in the 21st minute through Alejandro Garnacho, who took advantage of an assist from Diogo Dalot and hit the Eagles’ goal with a shot from about 6-7 meters.
Just six minutes later, Mason Mount took a corner kick from the right of the visitors’ goal, and his cross landed right on the head of Casemiro and the Brazilian made it 2-0.
Classic success for the team led by Erik ten Hag, set up Anthony Martial in the 55th minute, capitalizing on a clever pass from Casemiro.
In this way, United are already in the last 16 of the competition, and curiously, in a few days they will again host Crystal Palace at Old Trafford, but this time in a Premier League match.
