Manager Erik Ten Hag was visibly upset despite his side taking all three points because he will be without the former Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro for three games.
United took a 2-0 lead before Jeffrey Schlupp reduced the deficit and set up a nervous ending to the game, the Red Devils held on for three points while Palace will now turn their attention to their derby game against Brighton and Hove Albion.
After the game Manchester United manager Ten Hag admitted VAR should have sent off both Jordan Ayew and Jeffrey Schlupp who started the melee.
He told reporters after the final whistle at Old Trafford: “The player from Crystal Palace takes a big risk by this foul that he gets badly injured by pushing him across the line and you know the pitches here. And then everyone is reacting, Crystal Palace and Manchester United players, and not only Casemiro.
“He (Ayew) was one of the players who did even worse than Casemiro. Casemiro, you freeze the moment, I think within the shot he’s crossing the line there, I definitely do. And you have to be consistent as a VAR.
“You say it (Ayew grabbed him by the throat). But my interpretation is the same, you say the same things. That’s what we’re talking about, when Casemiro was sent off in this incident. Definitely (Ayew should have been sent off).”
