Manchester United’s woes continued as they suffered a humiliating 4-0 defeat against Crystal Palace, leaving them in eighth place in the Premier League standings and at risk of missing out on European qualification for next season.

Michael Olise netted twice, with Jean-Philippe Mateta and Tyrick Mitchell also finding the net for Palace, as the Eagles soared under the guidance of manager Oliver Glasner.

Speculation mounts about the future of United’s current manager, Erik ten Hag, as the team struggles to find form in his second season at the helm. Ten Hag, acknowledging the poor performance, expressed his responsibility for the defeat, but pointed to ongoing injury issues plaguing the team.

United’s defensive woes were evident as makeshift arrangements failed to contain Palace’s attacking threat. The absence of key players like Bruno Fernandes further weakened the Red Devils’ resolve.

Despite past successes, United now face the grim prospect of missing out on European competition for only the second time since the 1989-90 season. The lack of fight and quality from the team is alarming, with their sole league win in the last seven games coming against relegated Sheffield United.

Meanwhile, Palace’s resurgence under Glasner’s management is evident as they remain unbeaten in their last five outings. The impressive performances of players like Olise and Eberechi Eze have attracted attention from top clubs, potentially complicating Palace’s plans for next season.

United’s struggles continued in the game, failing to register a single shot on target in the first half. Despite brief moments of resilience, such as Casemiro’s disallowed goal, they were ultimately outplayed by a superior Palace side.

The defeat further highlights United’s disappointing season, with their goal difference now at -3. With the FA Cup final against Manchester City looming, Ten Hag’s future hangs in the balance, with many questioning whether he can redeem himself in what could be his final opportunity to salvage United’s season.
