Man Utd v Crystal Palace

Postby Conner99 » Tue Sep 10, 2013 10:07 pm

Man Utd suffered their first defeat of the season as they lost 1-0 to Liverpool at Anfield , the loss left the champions in 7th place and manager David Moyes record of never winning a premier league match at Anfield continues as his team tried in vain to get something out of the match . He was happy enough with his team though despite the defeat ..saying it was the best performance of the season from his side .."It's the best we've played this season."


Crystal Palace gained their first points of the season as they enjoyed a 3-1 win over Sunderland , it was a welcome result for manager Ian Holloway , who was handed a 2 match touchline ban for improper conduct and bringing the game into disrepute following his comments after the 1-0 defeat by Tottenham . After this game his words were only about his team`s performance .." I was very, very pleased with the determination, the work rate and the performance, some of that passing was nice to watch."

I Think United will bounce back from the defeat to Liverpool, hoping that Kagawa will play some part in this game. Wellbeck and RVP were on form on international duty aswell and a chance for Fellaini to show he can cut it at the top.

This could be a lot tighter than some imagine ,Palace have acquitted themselves
well thus far ,and we're unlucky not to get a draw from Spurs.

I've been very impressed with Jedinak ,that fella's an absolute monster in the middle
and he offsets all of Palaces apparent weaknesses through the centre with some
strong link up play. I think Palace will do well to hold on to the player after this
season ,admittedly at 29 he's getting on ,but the big Aussie has looked frightening
this season,and would give any team a touch of metal through the middle.

1-2 United

Palace to score first ,Valencia or Nani to exploit the flanks and score the winner.

I think this is the perfect game for Fellaini to make his debut and also for RVP to return back to form after a little barren spell.

Man Utd 4-0 Crystal Palace

I fully expect the Eagles to pull off what what many may consider a shock draw.

1-1.

Did you know that Manchester United have failed to score in two successive Barclays Premier League games for the first time since August 2007.

Any more comments or predictions?

What a surprise! Wayne Rooney who couldn't play for England due to a cut head is now well enough to start for Man Utd!

Gary Lineker tweet

The amount of times Ashley Young throws himself to the ground, he should think about getting a Rooney headband!

1:17 PM - 14 Sep 2013 ......Just prior to the penalty


Ashley Young has gone down more than a skint crack head .....Mine that one

Fellaini's just come on for Anderson

Kagawa is nowhere to be seen,obviously Amos and Januzaj are more important right now as they are on the bench instead.

In my opinion Fellaini should have started.. you instantly noticed it when he was on the pitch..

I just can't understand why Kagawa gets no play time.. it's ridiculous...

Moyes' excuse was that Kagawa has played too much football over the summer with the confederations cup etc,but then again so have many players and they are fine..

Maybe he simply doesn't like him.

FT

Man Utd 2-0 Crystal Palace
1-0 van Persie 45’ (pen.)
2-0 Rooney 81'

David Moyes wins his first ever league match at Old Trafford in a comfortable but not spectacular Man Utd performance.

Any comments on todays result?

.. a must-win for Manchester United, but I doubt they can play for the Premier League title with this attitude and such lineups...
there is a lack of creativity.. and with players like Young playing instead of ones like Kagawa I see them fighting for finishing even 3rd this season..

It was a very bad decision by the ref to award the penalty and also to send of the Palace player just before half time.

This isn't the first timne Ashley Young has been accused of diving and Patrice Evra also cheated to try and win a spot kick.

Crystal Palace didn't have a single shot on target and need to stop trying to play ball out of defence in places like Old Trafford
