So much for Manchester United's revival. After a slender win at Burnley and a convincing Carabao Cup victory over Crystal Palace, Erik ten Hag's side are right back to square one after a limp 1-0 defeat at home to Palace.
A deflected Joachim Andersen goal in the first half proved the difference but what was most concerning was United's severe lack of attacking spark. And the blame must fall on Marcus Rashford, who had a really poor game once more and could be in danger of losing his place to Alejandro Garnacho if he keeps this dire form up.
Sofyan Amrabat also had a disappointing first Premier League start after an excellent home bow four days ago while Casemiro also looked leggy again after a short-lived improvement. United made Old Trafford a fortress last season but now they have lost consecutive league games at their home for the first time since November 2021.
