Manchester United 0-1 Crystal Palace: Player ratings as the Red Devils suffer second successive Old Trafford loss in Premier League

Manchester United’s awful start to the season continued with a 1-0 loss to Crystal Palace at Old Trafford today.

A breathtaking first-half strike from defender Joachim Andersen was the difference between the two sides.

Man United finished the game with 77% ball possession and played over 700 passes – three times more than Crystal Palace (219).

The Red Devils are tenth in the Premier League standings after seven games.

Player Ratings:

Andre Onana – 5/10

He was helpless for Andersen’s powerful strike. 

Diogo Dalot – 7/10

A fine performance from the full-back, who stuck to his task. He made a good recovery challenge in the first half and almost provided a goal for Mason Mount.

Raphael Varane – 6/10

Another player whom fans cannot have any complaints from. He played a commanding role at the back.

Victor Lindelof – 5/10

The Sweden international played second fiddle to Varane and largely dealt with any attacking threat.

Sofyan Amrabat – 4/10

Ten Hag started Amrabat in the unfamiliar left-back role again. He conceded an unnecessary foul that led to the only goal of the game.

Casemiro – 5/10

The Brazilian midfielder was strangely booked early in the game. He came close to scoring the equaliser twice but failed to keep his shots on target.

Mason Mount – 5/10

He had a great chance to bring the score to parity but failed to hit the target.

Bruno Fernandes – 5/10

The United captain pulled out a great save from Sam Johnstone. He also made a crunch tackle near his own box to win the ball. However, expectations are higher for Fernandes.

Marcus Rashford – 4/10

The England international barely offered any threat going forward. The groans from the Old Trafford crowd made him aware of his poor use of the ball. 

It’s high time for Rashford to pull up his socks.

Facundo Pellistri – 5/10

With Antony back in the Man United squad, Pellistri needs to find the end product quickly to safeguard his starting spot.

Rasmus Hojlund – 4/10

Hojlund had two great chances but failed to score each time. It is not coming off yet for the youngster.


Alejandro Garnacho – 6/10

Rashford is a big name to drop. However, Ten Hag has to find a way to start Garnacho next time. He is their most threatening attacking player.

Christian Eriksen – 3/10

The midfielder failed to create any robust chance in his 13-minute cameo. 

Anthony Martial – 4/10

He operated too far away from the box.

Harry Maguire – N/A

Too late to rate.

Donny van de Beek – N/A

Too late to rate.
