Manchester United faced off against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park earlier tonight as they looked to secure a positive result on the road in the Premier League. The Red Devils made a solid start to the game and got their noses ahead in the 43rd minute when Bruno Fernandes found the back of the net. Man United went into the half-time break 1-0 up on the scoreline.

The visitors were defensively solid for most of the second 45 minutes but conceded the equaliser in injury time when Michael Olise scored for the Eagles. The match ended with the Red Devils being held to a 1-1 draw away from home.

Let’s take a look at how each Manchester United player fared during the match against the Eagles.

GK: David de Gea – 6.5/10

The Spanish keeper made a few solid saves at the back but will be disappointed after conceding in the dying embers of the contest.

RB: Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 7/10

He didn’t put a foot wrong in the game when defending inside his half. Wan-Bissaka made one key chance in the final third.

CB: Raphael Varane – 6.5/10

The French talent made some crucial contributions at the back but failed to secure a clean sheet tonight.

CB: Lisandro Martinez – 7.5/10

Martinez was solid on the defensive end of the field and was good on the ball as well.

LB: Luke Shaw – 6.5/10

Shaw gave a good account of himself on the defensive end of the field and made one good chance going forward.

CM: Casemiro – 7.5/10

The Brazilian talent anchored the midfield with conviction and engineered a couple of decent chances in the final third.

CM: Christian Eriksen – 7/10

He struggled to get a foothold in the game but picked up an assist for setting up Fernandes’ goal.

RW: Antony – 6.5/10

Antony was quiet for most of the game and was lackluster in the final third.

CAM: Bruno Fernandes – 8.5/10

He was a valuable contributor at both ends of the field and did well to get his name on the scoresheet just before the half-time break.

LW: Marcus Rashford – 6/10

Rashford managed to threaten the opposition goal at times but there was no goal for him tonight.

ST: Wout Weghorst – 6.5/10

He struggled to be a menace inside the Palace penalty area but got replaced in the 68th minute.

Substitutes:

CM: Scott McTominay – 5.5/10

He offered very little in the final third.

LW: Alejandro Garnacho – 6/10

Garnacho was accurate with his passing.

CM: Fred – N/A

He didn’t get enough time to make an impact.
