Follow live coverage as Crystal Palace face Manchester United in the Premier League today.

Manchester City are reigning champions after a dominant 2020/21 season and Pep Guardiola's side are favourites to win it again boasting as they do one of the best squads in Europe.

European champions Chelsea have proven they have what it takes to dethrone City, however, having done it in last season's Champions League final and will be hoping to add a domestic title to the one won in Porto.

Liverpool were winners back in 2020 ending a 30-year wait for league glory and Jurgen Klopp is sure to have them back challenging again at the sharp end this season too while Manchester United will be looking to be back in the title picture with Cristiano Ronaldo returning to his former club in the summer.

It's not all about the action at the top though with Norwich, Watford and Brentford promoted to the top tier for 2020/21 and hoping to hold their own against the best English football has to offer and avoid the drop.

We will bring you all the action and updates from today's game in the live blog below:

The three points for the hosts means that they finish the season in 12th position, and can look forward to another season of Premier League football next campaign. For the Red Devils, they cling on to sixth place and Europa League qualification by virtue of West Ham's defeat to Brighton and Hove Albion. This marks the last game of Rangnick's tenure, and new manager Erik Ten Hag has a big summer ahead of him as he tries to restore United to their former glories.

Referee Atkinson blows the whistle on the 90 minutes and both of these team's seasons, with the hosts running out 1-0 victors. Both sides had chances in the first half, until Palace took the lead through their talisman Zaha after 37 minutes. He showed great strength to hold off Dalot before weaving into the box, and drilling into the bottom left corner past De Gea. United hunted for an equaliser, and nearly found one when Mejbri sent a dink over Guaita from just outside the box. However, the Spanish goalkeeper did well to scramble back and tip it over and retain his side's lead. The visitors went close again when Fernandes picked out Garnacho at the back post, but the youngster couldn't turn it in and the Eagles held on for a 1-0 win.
