Manchester United ended a disappointing season on a poor note with a 1-0 defeat to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

The Red Devils were still able to secure Europa League football next season following West Ham’s defeat to Brighton.

New Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag watched on as a lacklustre United side lost against Crystal Palace in the final game of the Premier League season.

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea implied that his team-mates are not up to scratch after calling on the Red Devils board to sign ‘good’ players in the summer transfer window. 

United are primed for a big overhaul this summer, with Ten Hag running the rule over the players at Selhurst Park. Long-serving ace De Gea has called for ‘good’ players to be signed in an apparent dig at the quality of his colleagues.

De Gea told BBC Sport: “The new manager and staff are already looking for new players. Hopefully they bring good ones with good character.”

The Red Devils finished the season with our lowest Premier League points tally – 58. There was just one win in United’s final six league fixtures.
