Manchester United fans react to 2-1 loss to Crystal Palace

Manchester United fans were thoroughly displeased with their team’s inconsistent form after losing 2-1 to Crystal Palace at Old Trafford.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men had beaten Chelsea convincingly 4-0 in their first fixture of the season to give supporters hope of a positive campaign.

Unfortunately United went on to draw against Wolves, leaving fans with a bitter taste in their mouths before Palace shocked everyone by winning all three points.

Solskjaer clearly has a lot of work to do with a young, inexperienced squad lacking in depth as things can quickly get away from them if they don’t recover fast.

The Red Devils’ loss can’t be pinpointed to one player with several of their stars underperforming on a day they couldn’t afford to.

Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof were guilty of Palace’s opener while Marcus Rashford, Paul Pogba and David de Gea were guilty of their winner.

The normally composed Swede lost his aerial duel that saw Palace slide through so easily but he was arguably let down by the former Leicester star who didn’t cover for him and played Ayew onside.

Pogba lost possession while Rashford lost his opposite full-back and De Gea allowed himself beaten on the near post in embarrassing style.
