Player ratings from Manchester United’s 0-1 loss to Crystal Palace at Old Trafford in the Premier League.

Andre Onana - 5

He didn’t have a busy game, but you wonder if David De Gea saves that.

Diogo Dalot - 6

Has improved in the final third in recent games and nearly got rewarded towards the end. Didn’t do much wrong defensively.

Raphael Varane - 7

Solid in defensive transition and was let down by some of his teammates in the backline.

Victor Lindelof - 3

Offers nothing on the ball; this isn’t a problem when he’s got a partner to progress the ball but it is a problem when he doesn’t have someone doing it for him. He’s not good enough defensively to compensate for this.

Sofyan Amrabat - 4

Made a good start but struggled off the ball and got harried a little when he was on it. His qualities are still quite important to the side, but that was a tough afternoon for the new signing.

Casemiro - 4

Just really sloppy on the ball and didn’t score a goal to make up for it.

Bruno Fernandes - 5

Had a quiet game by his standard. Most of the attacks came from the left, which didn’t help.

Mason Mount - 6

Made a great start to the game before the game got away from him and his teammates.

Facundo Pellistri - 3

Just don’t see it with him. He works hard but isn’t physical enough to recover the ball and offers no threat going forward.

Marcus Rashford - 4

The threat tends to make up for the frustrating decision making but he didn’t offer any today.

Rasmus Hojlund - 5

There’s a lot to like about Hojlund but he feels like the perfect backup for a main man right now. He could become the main man someday but he’s not quite there at the moment.


Alejandro Garnacho - 6

Had two decent efforts.

Antony Martial and Christian Eriksen - 3

Had no impact.

Donny van de Beek, Harry Maguire - N/A


Erik ten Hag - 3

Playing two center-backs who offer nothing on the ball is painful viewing. Hannibal Mejbri’s energy and calmness on the ball were missing today, so he got a few decisions wrong right from the start. Too many sloppy passes from senior players don’t help, but the manager needs to settle on a way of playing that doesn’t lead to so many sloppy passes. He’s running out of excuses.
