The 21-year-old - who became the 100th player to score a Premier League goal for Manchester United - bent a terrific finish into the corner to make the ideal start to his United first-team career.

He tweeted afterwards, alongside a picture of his no 48 shirt hanging on the Old Trafford dressing room wall:"What an experience that was being involved with the 1st team today thanks for your support".

United now face a crucial Europa League final against Ajax on Wednesday evening with a place in next season's Champions League at stake.

Jose Mourinho didn't take questions after the win over Crystal Palace.

With the victory in the bag and the Premier League season over, Mourinho then only spoke to United's in-house channel MUTV very briefly, saying: "Don't ask me too many things because now I am in a final".

Jose Mourinho's first season with Manchester United is coming to an end.

Harrop was teed up by Paul Pogba but had lots of work to do after 15 minutes at Old Trafford, cutting inside Palace defender Martin Kelly to create an opening for himself. I think I'd probably go for Valencia as he's been the most consistent player in a turbulent defence, whereas Ibrahimovic can be a bit selfish.

Meghan Markle skips Pippa Middleton wedding
For their aunt's wedding, Prince George and Princess Charlotte joined six other children serving as page boys and bridesmaids. Pippa Middleton married financier boyfriend James Matthews yesterday in a stunning ceremony fit for a princess.

Harrop became the 100th different player to score a Premier League goal for United and was soon joined on the scoresheet by another academy graduate, albeit this one was far better known.

The reporter tried in vain to get something out of the manager, asking him:"Do you know your team?"

"Beforehand, Paul Pogba, Carrick, Phil Jones next to me, were helping a lot".

"Especially after the game, I was thinking 'this is what it's all about, it's what dreams are made of".

"It was great to have them alongside to help me through the game and give me confidence".

Crystal Palace's hard season ended in defeat but at least safety had already been guaranteed for next season.
