Crystal Palace 0 -0 Man Utd
Manchester United’s already slim Premier League title hopes were dealt a blow as they were held to a goalless draw in a drab encounter at Crystal Palace.
The visitors dominated possession but struggled to create many meaningful chances, with Nemanja Matic going closest in the first half when he brought out a decent save from Vicente Guaita.
Palace did not manage a shot on target until early in the second half when Jordan Ayew fired straight at keeper Dean Henderson after a good one-two with Christian Benteke.
“It’s not good as you know if you want to move up the table, you need to win. You have to earn the right, you have to win tackles, you have to fight you have to play passes better we kept giving the ball away,” Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said.
“The tempo was missing, once in a while it happens. It wasn’t one of our best nights that’s for sure.
