Manchester United’s impressive pre-season form continued with a 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace on Tuesday in Australia.
Goals from Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Anthony Martial gave United a deserved victory, with Patrick Vieira’s men scoring a late consolation after a raft of substitutions.
Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag is trying to impose a unique style of play at United and he has promised to be firm with players that do not take on his ideas.
During the 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace, Ten Hag blasted Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea for his decision-making.
The Spaniard took a back pass from Aaron Wan-Bissaka but instead of passing back to one of his defenders in order to play out from the back, De Gea opted to lump the ball upfield.
Manchester United lost possession of the ball and Ten Hag was far from pleased and he could be heard screaming: “David! What the f**k are you doing?!”.
Ten Hag was clearly angered at De Gea’s decision to play a long kick up the field, which he regularly did under previous managers like Jose Mourinho and David Moyes.
