Danny Gabbidon fired the Eagles ahead in the 26th minute with Andy King levelling matters 11 minutes later.

Stephen Dobbie restored Palace's lead midway through the second half, before Chris Wood made it two apiece 18 minutes from time.

Pearson said: "We were unlucky not to win it.

"I think we were the better side. We had to deal with a Palace side who made quite a few changes and adopted a different style.

"But I think for the most part we coped with that threat well and showed some resilience to come from a goal behind on a couple of occasions.

"We created a lot of decent chances and played some good football."

ou spend £200 million in one year and you say 3 years to win the title, I don't think the Man U board signed you to win the title in 3 years after shelling out that sort of cash. Spending that sort of money you should be challenging for the title in this season, not getting an early excuse in to try appeasing the fans and board.
