Manchester United was made to pay dearly for their missed goal scoring chances as Crystal Palace defeated the Red Devils 2-1 at Old Trafford in Saturday’s Premier League game.
Goals from Jordan Ayew and Van Aanholt’s late minute goal was enough to end Man United unbeaten record in the league this season.
Soccernet rates the performance of the players of the Red Devils at Old Trafford.
David de Gea 6 – Superb save to keep Crystal Palace from going 2-0 up but he later made an error and conceded poorly.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka 7 – Can’t question his defensive solidity and was even more attacking than usual. Manchester United’s constant wide output.
Harry Maguire 6 – Strong aerially but it could be debated whether he was equally at fault for the opener having failed to cover Victor Lindelof.
Victor Lindelof 5 – Had a terrible couple of minutes when he seemingly couldn’t win any of his duels leaving Crystal Palace to score the first goal.
Luke Shaw N/A – Few pieces of decent play but was subbed off after picking up a knock having made a lung-bursting run.
Scott McTominay 6 – Chased after every ball and even made a few runs forwards himself, winning the penalty Marcus Rashford failed to convert.
Paul Pogba 6 – It’s clear to see United aren’t getting the best out of him in his new role. Better off being pushed further forward.
Daniel James 7 – Took his man on at every opportunity and had one or two chances to grab a goal so his persistence eventually paid off.
Jesse Lingard 5 – The perfect game for a number ten to take apart a stubborn Crystal Palace side. Unfortunately, Lingard’s poor form continues.
Marcus Rashford 5 – Hardly had much to shout about before the penalty and so his miss made everything worse. Failed to track his opposite full-back and allowed him to score.
Anthony Martial 7 – Provided the assist for James and couldn’t have done much more as a number nine.
Juan Mata N/A
Ashley Young 6- Was not as bad as fans may have feared he’d be.
Mason Greenwood 6– Relatively quiet game from out wide.
