Manchester United fans were thrilled with Josh Harrop‘s performance in the 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace.
Jose Mourinho promised he would play Man United’s youngsters and it was brilliant to see Harrop handed his debut for Man United’s final day of the Premier League.
He made it a day to remember after Paul Pogba played him through with a stunning ball with the outside of his foot and Harrop didn’t fail to deliver as he rushed into the box, cut the ball onto his right foot and smashed the ball into the back of the net with an incredibly composed strike.
Here’s what supporters on social media had to say about his performance.

I liked that. Cut inside a couple, Rooney shouting for pass, Harrop ignored him and smashed it in. Great confidence.

Josh Harrop has been brilliant even apart from his goal. Could well be worthy of a place in the squad next season if given a chance.

Harrop scored a hat-trick for United’s reserves in the victory over Tottenham at Old Trafford and had earned his spot in Mourinho’s youngest XI in Premier League history.
He’s a free agent this summer and United will undoubtedly look to hand him a fresh deal, especially after his impressive display against Crystal Palace.
Even though he’s been attracting interest from Championship clubs, Harrop will now have his heart set on impressing Mourinho further at Old Trafford after making his dream come true and scoring on his debut.
