Solskjaer On Man Utd' Second Straight Penalty Miss

Diogo Dalot sidelined for Manchester United

A big blow this was for Manchester United as the English giants spent much on the defensive reinforcements in this transfer window.

‏And Rashford was quick to defend fellow teammate Pogba on Twitter following the abuse he received in the aftermath of the game against Wolves last week.

Pogba, who missed a penalty in Monday's 1-1 draw at Wolverhampton Wanderers, compounded another poor performance when he gave the ball away in the danger zone and Van Aanholt pounced to beat De Gea with a low shot from 12 yards.

Manchester United's acquisition of Aaron Wan-Bissaka for £50 million ($61 million) in June raised eyebrows for a right-back with fewer than half a century of senior appearances in a far less pressurised environment at Crystal Palace.

Manchester United's Ashley Young and Harry Maguire reflect on their defeat (Nigel French/PA).

"Sometimes it happens", the United manager said, according to Metro. "They never looked like creating anything". That's when you need that tempo change. "[The first goal] was one long kick, such an easy goal, and the last goal, David has not touched the ball [all game] and they score again".

Wan-Bissaka represents one of a number of players to have benefitted from Solskjaer's vow that he would place a greater emphasis on youth this season. "We don't have loads of options". If there is a good offer, maybe he will go.

"He's been training well and there's no doubt about his quality so let's see".

Roy Hodgson will certainly be looking for Palace to keep this form going.

However, in the third minute of stoppage time, a complacent United permitted Patrick Van Aanholt to net the victor as the Theatre of Dreams sat back shocked.

"We were getting asked a lot of questions which we knew we would. It's just insane that we are talking about this in 2019". We dug in and luck was on our side today.

"I think we didn't have enough urgency and penetration", said Solskjaer.
