Manchester United’s struggles laid bare in Crystal Palace defeat

Manchester United recorded our fourth defeat of the Premier League season as Crystal Palace won 1-0 at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

The Eagles took the lead courtesy of a brilliant strike by defender Joachim Anderson in the 25th minute.

Despite doing all to find an equaliser, Palace goalkeeper Sam Johnstone enjoyed a quiet afternoon as United’s attack rarely troubled him.

Red Devils midfielder Mason Mount missed our best chance in the second half, with Palace seeing out a victory that moved them up to ninth place, one place above United n the Premier League standings.

This home defeat is a clear indication that United boss Erik ten Hag still has more work to do with the team as pressure mounts on him to deliver.
