Ralf Rangnick has said Manchester United were better than he expected in the win over Crystal Palace on Sunday.

The German was in the Old Trafford dugout for the first time as Fred's 77th minute strike proved the difference against Patrick Vieira's side.

And Rangnick admits the performance exceeded his expectations.

"I am very happy with the way the team performed, especially the first half-hour, with the pressing, it was exceptional. The only thing missing was the 1-0 or 2-0," he told BBC Match of the Day.

"The way we defended, we had control of the whole game, the clean sheet was the most important part.

"These are the things we must improve. We need to keep clean sheets. With just the one training session, I was really impressed. We did much better than expected."
