Manchester United suffered a humiliating defeat at Old Trafford this afternoon as we were beaten 1-2 on home soil by Crystal Palace.
The Eagles took the lead on the half hour when Vicente Guaita’s hoof up field was flicked on by Jeffrey Schlupp to give Jordan a one-on-one that he duly converted. Route one stuff that most Sunday League defences would have been able to deal with.
For United, Victor Lindelof was beaten in the air by a 5’10” left winger and Harry Maguire was nowhere in sight. The England international was instead out on the left marking the same right winger that Luke Shaw was already dealing with.
Marcus Rashford hit the post with a penalty in the second half just days after Gary Neville had a breakdown for Paul Pogba missing a penalty in our 1-1 draw at Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Daniel James produced a nice finish in the 89th minute to equalise and we continued to push for a winner. Unfortunately, Roy Hodgson’s side caught us out on the break and left-back Patrick van Aanholt beat David de Gea at his near post. Yes, another howler from the Spanish number one. When can we have the old Dave back?
