Manchester United vs Crystal Palace: Player Ratings

Image result for manchester united vs crystal palace

I stopped watching the game in the 84th minute and started writing this article. A few moments later, I heard some noise only to check and Daniel James had equalised for us, unfortunately Palace scored almost immediately afterwards to drown any hope United had of a win. We had a very low intensity game and our lack of creativity is screaming in our faces not to mention another penalty miss. 

Here are the player ratings from the game.
De Gea  4
Was pretty much untested through out the game. Made some great one on one saves and had very little to do about the first goal we conceded. Yeah, we just conceded another goal. Absolute shambles. De Gea definitely at fault here. Reason his rating is as low as it is.
Wan Bissaka 6
His side was avoided by Crystal Palace and he had some great additions to the attack. Just not good enough for today.
Lindelof 4
Was at fault for the first goal we conceded,. But was pretty much untested for the rest of the game.
Harry Maguire 6
Added some calmness into our defense but he is a bit slow to cover up for other defenders’ mistakes.
Luke Shaw 4
Had a hard time in the game and eventually got injured and not looking good for United now.
McTominay 5
Had an average game playing along Paul Pogba. Just not good enough.
Paul Pogba 6
We still rely on him for creativity and yet he is playing deep. Massively underutilized.
Lingard 3
Apart from running, this guy offers nothing.
Dan James 7
Missed a chance early on and was a bit off game today. Scored our goal with a great finish.
Rashford 5
Still poor at decision making. Missed a penalty and squandered a couple of free kicks.
Martial 7
Looked isolated up top. Had not much work to do.  Assisted Dan James so his rating goes higher.

Young 5
Had a pretty good game compared to Luke Shaw. Was bullied by Zaha at times.

Greenwood 5
No real impact from our wonder boy. Had a hand in pur goal though. Needs more playing time.

Mata 3
Very little time to cause an impact. I hope to see Greenwood and Gomes get much more playing time in the next games instead of Mata and Lingard.
