manchester united player ratings red devils underwhelm vs ... Heavy fog might have been something of a blessing for viewers in a dreadful game at Crystal Palace
Manchester United labored to a 0-0 draw in the deep mist of Crystal Palace's Selhurst Park on Wednesday, an underwhelming result that could leave them worried about the chasing pack outside the top four with just two wins from their last eight Premier League matches.
The point extended United's unbeaten run away from home in the Premier League to 21 games, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's thunderous face at full time suggested that he was far from impressed by his side's showing away to a diligent Crystal Palace side, who remain in 13th and are now 11 points from the relegation zone.
Nemanja Matic's fearsome drive brought a smart save from Vicente Guaita in a first half where Palace were all too willing to sit deep and soak up pressure. United did little to charm their way through that backline and when they did get half a chance they would often find one last defender blocking their path, with Joel Ward making a crucial intervention to keep Aaron Wan-Bissaka's fine cross from Edinson Cavani just before the break.
The second half brought ever-deepening fog at Selhurst Park but it would be a generous viewer who said that that was a justification for a plodding display from United. Indeed Palace looked the more likely scorers early in the half, Jordan Ayew hitting their first shot on target in the 51st minute. Though substitute Daniel James found space for an unmarked header late on it would have been far more than the visitors deserved if they had netted a late winner.
Instead they find themselves looking over their shoulders somewhat, just seven points clear of Chelsea in fifth having played a game more.
Dean Henderson: As is so often the way for Henderson, he came into the side when there was little chance that he would have anything to do. In the first half he didn't even have a save to make. He was not much busier in the second though he saved excellently late on from Patrick van Aanholt, though it would likely have been given offside had the Palace left-back scored. Rating: 6
Aaron Wan-Bissaka: Against his former club there were impressive flashes in an attacking sense from a player who is clearly not a natural on the front foot, including one brilliant delivery in the first half. Rating: 6
