Ralf Rangnick’s tenure as Manchester United manager begins in earnest as Crystal Palace visit Old Trafford.

The 63-year-old German boss was in the stands to see United make it three games unbeaten in all competitions following their 3-2 win against Arsenal on Thursday. 

Now the Red Devils will look to avoid a repeat of their defeat at home against Palace, who are on a three-match winless streak but who claimed a 3-1 victory in the opening game of last season at Old Trafford.

We will have confirmation of Ralf Rangnick’s first team selection as Man United boss plus the Palace line-up for you shortly.

Manchester United failed to win either of their league meetings with Crystal Palace last season (D1 L1). They’ve not gone three without a win against the Eagles since a run of four between 1925 and 1970.

Crystal Palace have won their last two away league games against Manchester United, as many as they’d managed in their previous 22 visits to Old Trafford in league competition (W2 D3 L17).

Crystal Palace have taken seven points from their last four league meetings with Manchester United (W2 D1 L1), as many as they’d managed in their previous 23 against them (W1 D4 L18).

Crystal Palace have already won 2-0 away against Manchester City in the Premier League this season – the last London side to win away at both Manchester clubs (City & United) in the same top-flight campaign was Arsenal in 1990-91.

Man Utd have conceded in 15 consecutive home games in all competitions, their second-longest ever such run, after a 21-game streak ending in March 1959.

They come as no surprise anymore but Ronaldo’s genius knows no boundaries after shattering yet another record in midweek.

His goal to put United 2-1 ahead on the break against Arsenal was his 800th career goal, the first male or female player in the history of the game to score so many professionally.

The tally soon became 801 when he smashed a penalty high into the net for the winner against the Gunners. So can he make it 802 – or maybe more – today, depending on rumours of his fitness.

Amid all the euphoria surrounding Rangnick’s arrival, the German himself is not getting too carried away.

Here, he delivers on his assessment on why United will not challenge the Chelseas, Citys and Liverpools for some time yet…

Rangnick’s immediate attention will of course focus on today’s game, but you cannot help but wonder how much thought he has given to next year’s transfer windows.

United could enter the January market for a midfielder while the summer is expected to bring about some sort of overhaul.

But who could figure in United’s XI next season? Sportsmail’s DAN DAVIS takes a look….

A new era dawns for Manchester United as Ralf Rangnick takes charge of his first game as boss.

The German has been spending the past few days devising a plan to get his reign off to a winning start against Crystal Palace, and would have been buoyed by at least some of what he saw on Thursday.

Cristiano Ronaldo passing the 800-goal barrier would have been among those pleasing aspects, but the failure to control the game and concede two goals against Arsenal, less so.

So what sort of performance can his side deliver as he takes the hotseat today? Sportsmail’s ADAM SHERGOLD has you covered…
