Man Utd European qualification hit further blow in 4-0 thrashing of Crystal Palace

Manchester United chances of qualifying for European football hit further blow on Monday as high flying Crystal Palace defeated the Red Devils by four goals to nothing

The main target for summer transfer window of Manchester united, Michael Olise scored a brace of goals as Crystal Palace completed a league double over Manchester United for the first time in their history with a thumping victory at Selhurst Park that will add to the pressure on manager Erik ten Hag.

A makeshift United defence that included Casemiro at centre-back was easily picked apart by Palace on several occasions as Jean-Philippe Mateta and Tyrick Mitchell joined the scoresheet in the impressive win.

United remain in eighth place with 54 points from 35 games, two points behind Newcastle United in sixth, with their hopes of European football next season fading fast. Palace are still in 14th with 43 points from 36 matches.

United had several injury absentees and were without Bruno Fernandes, the first time in his 230-game Old Trafford career he has missed a match with injury, but the ease with which they were beaten will be a huge concern for everyone at the club.

The loss was their 13th of the Premier League season — they have never lost more games over the course of a single campaign.
