Exclusive: Ralf Rangnick has agreed to become Manchester United's interim manager. Six-month contract sorted, with additional two years in a consultancy role. Feels a really smart appointment amid the tumult.

Ajax will go into the #UCL round of 16 off the back of six wins out of six in the group stage. They continue to punch above their weight under Erik ten Hag. 📝 @honigstein

Rangnick’s first game was as we might have expected: a narrow attack causing lots of turnovers but creating little. Decent start.

🎧 Talk of the Devils 🎧 Thoughts on Ralf Rangnick’s first game, with focus on Fred, 4-2-2-2 + Diogo Dalot. Had to dash to see screening of Robbo (very good, by the way) with @AndyMitten + @ianirvingtv holding the fort. @TheAthleticUK #MUFC

'By the way, Cristiano Ronaldo’s work off the ball ... chapeau.' Who said Ronaldo wasn’t the right fit for Ralf Rangnick's Manchester United? Judging by the early evidence, they are going to get on just fine. #MUFC

Ralf Rangnick spoke mostly about “control” ahead of this game + though the score was only 1-0 United felt more comfortable in that victory than in most other performances this season. The right reaction from players. A platform to build on. #MUFC

That is gorgeous from Fred. Right footed! Dalot’s dynamism crucial, nice lay off Greenwood, sensational finish. A sign Fred - who has been good recently - could do quite well under Rangnick. United’s play has gone awry second half but substitutions changed momentum. #MUFC

Encouraging first half under Rangnick. Good intensity + keeping majority of play in Palace third. Telles + Dalot pushing on, as required in this system. Rashford bright. #MUFC

Anthony Elanga impressed in training yesterday + gets reward with place on the bench. Wouldn't be surprised to see him come on depending on state of the contest. #MUFC

Thought Rangnick would pick same team due to one training session after positive display. This piece looks at the starting XI with a note on the Red Bull Salzburg version of Cristiano Ronaldo (who scored lots of goals). #MUFC @TheAthleticUK
