MANCHESTER: Romelu Lukaku scored for the sixth straight game after Marouane Fellaini netted twice as Manchester United beat Crystal Palace 4-0 on Saturday, keeping the beleaguered visitor without a point or a goal in the English Premier League.

Lukaku was kept relatively quiet at Old Trafford until the 86th minute, when he tapped in for an 11th goal in 10 games for his new club.

It wrapped up unbeaten United's fourth 4-0 win in seven league games.

Earlier, fellow forward Marcus Rashford excelled, setting up two of the goals, including the first of the game by Juan Mata inside three minutes.

Rashford beat a defender with ease on the left wing and raced into the area before squaring for Mata to finish from 10 meters.

Fellaini applied a side-footed volley from Ashley Young's cross to double the lead before halftime, and the bushy-haired midfielder headed in Rashford's free kick after the interval for his second goal.

It was the first time Fellaini has scored twice in a game for United since joining in 2013.

Last-place Palace has conceded nine goals in two trips to Manchester in the space of a week, having lost 5-0 at City last weekend.
