BBC Sport - Crystal Palace 1-2 Man Utd: Louis van Gaal praises work ethic

Work ethic key to win - Van Gaal

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal praises his side's work ethic in their 2-1 defeat of Crystal Palace.

Juan Mata scored from the spot to put the visitors ahead before Jason Puncheon levelled for Palace, but Marouane Fellaini headed in the winner on 78 minutes.

Only Liverpool can prevent them finishing in the top four and United will return to the Champions League if Brendan Rodgers' side lose at the home of newly-crowned champions Chelsea on Sunday.
