Anthony Martial kept up his good form in Manchester United's pre season, by getting on the end of a brilliant team move against Crystal Palace.
Martial is back at United, after being on loan at Sevilla for the first half of this year, and has been given a run in the team in Thailand and Australia.
He's started pretty well, with goals against Liverpool, in a 4-0 win, and Melbourne Victory, in a 4-1 success, and he added another on Tuesday.
United faced fellow Premier League side Palace, and the Frenchman got on the end of Diogo Dalot's swung in cross, after another brilliant pass from fellow left back Tyrell Malacia.

TEN HAG BALL😍 pic.twitter.com/qsqCFIj5cH
United fans have been enjoying 'Ten Hag ball' so far in the summer but Patrick Vieira's side should give them a great reminder not to get too far ahead of themselves.
The south London side were also the opposition for Ralf Rangnick's first game in charge of United, last December, and the Red Devils started the game so well.
There was praise in the first half of how well the Old Trafford side were pressing their opponents, but it soon fell away and they eventually turned into a pretty poor side under Rangnick.
Whilst there's no suggestion it'll happen the same way under Ten Hag, they should exercise some caution, after all it is only pre season.
As well as the goal, Martial did have another chance saved back Jack Butland, which led to the keeper having to be taken off with an injury.
Elsewhere on the pitch, captain Harry Maguire was having an odd evening at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, as the crowd appeared to boo his every touch.
Martial then nearly got on the end of a cross from Rashford, and fans started to think the trio of that pair with Jadon Sancho was looking pretty good.
Of course if Ronaldo is to come back into the team, and he seems to be running out of options to force a move, then it could quickly be broken up.
How many goals do you think Martial will get next season? Let us know in the comments.
