Both sides went into the match with little to play for, and it resulted in an end-to-end classic which saw a massive 42 shots between the two sides.

There were 43 shots that day, with United responsible for 26 of them as they ran riot against a care-free Leeds team.

Villa have featured just once on that list of matches with the most shots, with 39 in their match against Marcelo Bielsa's side at home earlier in the season.

The tally at Selhurst Park was unexpected, certainly from the hosts' perspective. Palace average just 9.2 shots this season, with only Sheffield United and West Brom producing worse numbers than that.

Dean Smith's side are more reliable when it comes to attacking output though, their tally of 13.7 shots a game bettered by only the two Manchester clubs, Liverpool and Chelsea.

This was the final match both sides will play before fans return to stadiums midweek - supporters will be hoping their teams have left some excitement in the tank for when they are in attendance.
