Manchester United were held to a 1-1 draw by Crystal Palace, courtesy of a sensational 25-yard free-kick from Michael Olise in the injury time. David de Gea made an astounding save in the first half to deny the Eagles their opening goal. Soon after that save, Bruno Fernandes gave United the lead when Christian Eriksen found him in acres of space inside the box. However, with Crystal Palace dominating the ball in the second half, Casemiro had to make a tactical foul for the team to stop Wilfried Zaha. Casemiro got a golden opportunity to hand United a late winner but he failed to tap in Fernandes’ corner.
Harry Maguire is fit after his muscle injury but he may not start, having just returned to full training. Tyrell Malacia has seemingly lost his place in the line-up on the back of inconsistent displays. With a win being essential tonight, Luke Shaw, who is now the regular Premier League left-back, should get the nod. Eriksen has been in-and-out of the starting line-up lately amid fitness concerns, but is expected to start against the Romanian outfit, having been present in the press conference alongside Ten Hag yesterday. In attack, Cristiano Ronaldo could be reinstated into the starting line-up after serving his one-game suspension.3 months ago Man Utd News
