Tough times for United as Palace dominate 4-0

Manchester United saw bad things at Selhurst Park last night when Michaele Olise punished the visitors to seal a 4-0 victory for Crystal palace

Michael Olise ran 20 yards under no challenge to eventually slot beyond Andre Onana to put Oliver Glasner’s side in the lead after 13 minutes.

Jean-Philippe Mateta and Tyrick Mitchell slotted two goals for the hosts  when Casemiro and Evans paired at the center back partnership in this campaign denying the Europa chasers any chance.

Ten Hag’s side threatened in a couple of moments with Casemiro twice having goals ruled out – the first for a foul on Dean Henderson and the second for offside.

The loss leaves them eighth in the Premier League and out of the European places – although a victory against Manchester City in the FA Cup final would guarantee a Europa League spot.

And, despite having 10 first-team players out injured, Ten Hag was not pulling any punches.

Ten Hag’s future as United manager has been up for debate for months – despite the Dutchman having a year left on his contract.

United have taken 10 points from the past 11 Premier League games and conceded late goals against Fulham, Brentford, Chelsea, Liverpool and Burnley in that run, costing them 10 points.
