Van De Beek scored as a substitute, but he lost the game Cola Crystal Palace 1-3.
Chelsea , Leicester City and Arsenal , the teams below Man Utd in the 2019-2020 season, all have three full match points for the new season. Everton even played jubilantly and won both matches early in the season. However, “Red Devils” have to experience the feeling of defeat, despite being played at home, receiving the struggling opponent Crystal Palace last season.
Everything soon got out of the control of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s teachers and students. On the seventh minute, Andros Townsend opened the scoring after a series of mistakes in the red shirt defense. Starting from Jeffrey Schlupp’s sprint on the left flank, Victor Lindelof was not fast enough to cover the cross. The other two teammates in the defense, Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw, slowly stepped back to fill the gap. They did not have time to cut Schlupp’s cross, and let Townsend tap the ball into the ball.
Before Townsend registered on the electronic board, many pillars of Man Utd like Paul Pogba, David De Gea made mistakes on the home field. It didn’t seem like a momentary fumbling to enter the game, because after conceding, the home team could not speed up. Crystal Palace is not pressing from the “Red Devils” box, but every time the ball reaches the midfield line, neither Pogba nor Scott McTominay can develop the ball upwards. Bruno Fernandes, the boom player in the two seasons last season, suffered pain from the middle of the first half and almost lost the game. Ending the midfield and putting rookie Donny Van De Beek on the bench, Man Utd as if walking in the fog. In the 14th minute, they almost conceded the second goal when Lindelof’s header was light and was almost stolen by Wilfred Zaha.
