Crystal Palace handed Manchester United their fourth defeat in just seven Premier League games with a narrow 1-0 victory. The match witnessed an awful performance from the home side, leaving fans and coach Erik ten Hag scratching their heads in worry.
The defining moment of the match came early on when Joachim Anderson netted an early goal for Crystal Palace. This single strike turned out to be enough for the visitors to secure all three points in this disappointing outing for Manchester United in front of their home crowd.
The game started with great excitement, as both sets of fans eagerly awaited to see an engaging clash. However, it quickly became evident that this would not be the typical United performance. The team struggled to find their rhythm and lacked the flow that has made their play in the past. Crystal palace defender Joachim Anderson’s goal came as a shock to the Old Trafford faithful as he scored the winner in the very early stage of the game from a free-kick.
