English Premier League: Last-gasp free-kick equaliser ends Manchester United's winning streak

Manchester United's hopes of moving second in the Premier League have been scuppered, as they conceded a last-gasp equaliser to draw 1-1 away at Crystal Palace.

A 10th successive victory in all competitions looked in the bag, thanks to Bruno Fernandes' goal shortly before halftime, but they were stunned by Michael Olise's superb free-kick.

The week has been dominated by talk of British billionaire Jim Ratcliffe's ownership bid for England's most decorated club, as it seeks to restore its former glory.

But whatever happens off the pitch, United are in rude health on it, after the weekend win over Manchester City.

Brimming with confidence, they gave a debut to on-loan striker Wout Weghorst, but a more familiar face opened the scoring.

An even first half was almost up at a chilly Selhurst Park, when Christian Eriksen's pass picked out Fernandes, who fired an unstoppable shot into the net.

United controlled most of the second period, but could not hang on, as Olise sent a curling free-kick past David de Gea.

United moved into third place with 39 points, the same as City, who have a better goal difference. Arsenal, who face United on Sunday, have 47 having played a game less.

Manchester City face fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur.
