Manchester United entertained Crystal Palace at Old Trafford earlier today as they hoped to secure all three points on their travels. The Red Devils made a slow start to the game and conceded the opening goal in the 25th minute when Joachin Anderson scored with a stunning finish. The Mancunian club went into the half-time break 1-0 down on the scoreline.
Man United failed to take any of their chances in the second 45 minutes and crashed to a disappointing 1-0 loss at the Theatre of Dreams.
Let’s take a look at how each Manchester United player performed during the match against the Eagles.

He failed to keep things solid at the back but was lively going forward.
CB: Raphael Varane – 7/10
The French talent did his fair share of defending and was a strong presence in the air.
CB: Victor Lindelof – 6/10
Lindelof was far from convincing inside his half but was accurate with his passing.
LB: Sofyan Amrabat – 6.5/10
