Manchester United player ratings as Crystal Palace win 4-0

06/05/24 22:28

Manchester United have suffered their worst Premier League finish after a 13th loss of the season in a 4-0 thrashing by Crystal Palace in South London. Take a look at how we felt United’s players fared in a disappointing night at Selhurst Park.

Andre Onana 2

Whilst his defence did him no favours, this was far from an impressive outing for Onana. Giving up a brace by Michael Olise plus goals from Tyrick Mitchell and Jean-Phillipe Mateta, it was a night to forget for United’s keeper. He made a couple solid saves, however conceding four goals cannot justify a rating any higher.

Diogo Dalot 3.5

Defensively this was not Dalot’s best game by a wide margin, he did have a couple of positive runs up the pitch, but nothing that led to anything of any value. Just about an average night for the right back.

Casemiro 1

Despite being forced into playing out of position due to the long injury list Casemiro looked out of his depth at centre back. Palace attackers were taking advantage of the large gaps in United’s back line and in my opinion, this began with Casemiro. Another disappointing performance from a player who’s best days look to be far behind him.

Jonny Evans 2

Largely at fault for Mateta’s goal, Evans did not have a great performance in his return from injury. Constantly getting beaten by his man on the way to Palace’s barrage of goals.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka 2

Another player playing out of his natural position, it was not a good game from the full back. He found himself beaten by Palace’s wide players repeatedly and struggled to provide much going forward.

Kobbie Mainoo 4.5

Perhaps a victim of the poor midfield set-up, or just a difficult game in a young player's development, but this certainly was not the best game of Mainoo’s young career so far. He provided a small spark at times in an otherwise dismal United performance, but it is tough to rate this as anything other than below average.

Christian Eriksen 5

Eriksen had his moments this game, but lacked any real conviction in his final ball to create anything of real quality for United. Though this might be more of a mark against the quality of attackers he was providing service to.

Antony 0.5 For much of this match, it was tough to notice Antony was even on the pitch. Outside of a shot straight into Dean Henderson’s gloves early in the second half, he barely had a meaningful touch of the ball. Another disappointing performance.

Mason Mount 2

For Mount’s first Premier League start, it left a lot to be desired for. Taking over the number 10 role in place of the injured Bruno Fernandes, he did not create anything at all and went pretty unnoticed for much of the game until being subbed off just shy of 90 minutes.

Alejandro Garnacho 5.5

Garnacho was United’s best player on the night, though that is not saying much. He was the only attacking player who looked to be able to get at the Palace defence, however he struggled to get a real chance for himself and did not receive much support from his fellow forwards. Tough night for the young forward amidst an otherwise impressive season.

Rasmus Hojlund 2

After having what looked to be the equalising goal at the time ruled out, somewhat harshly, for a foul on Palace goalkeeper Henderson; Hojlund did not do much else all night. It has been a struggle so far for the £65m summer signing, and that only continued tonight.

Sofyan Amarabat 4

Amarabat’s performance after coming on for Antony in the second half begs the question: why was he not starting? He provided some sorely missed cover for a defence that had been ran off the pitch all night. A slightly positive night for a player who’s life at United has been the opposite so far.

Amad Diallo 4

A tough player to rate given that he was only awarded a brief cameo appearance very late in the match, and not an easy match to come into at that, but unfortunately for Diallo you cannot rate him too highly for what minutes he did have.

Ethan Wheatley 4

Again it is hard to rate Wheatley coming into a match like this so late on. The recent academy graduate came on at the same time as Diallo and so did not have much time to make any real impact at all.
