Crystal Palace humiliated Manchester United with a blistering display at Selhurst Park that leaves Erik ten Hag’s position with the Red Devils on a knife edge.

The hosts started as the better side and dominated possession from kick off. Michael Olise then opened the scoring in the 12th minute, cutting inside Casemiro and slotting home from inside the box. From there Palace never looked back. Jean-Philippe Mateta continued his amazing home form by darting in behind and blasting a strike past Andre Onana as United’s defence fell apart repeatedly.

The second half brought more goals. From a short corner Adam Wharton picked out Joachim Andersen at the far post who turned the ball across to Tyrick Mitchell for a tap-in. Olise then scored his second, Palace’s fourth, after Casemiro – who had a night to forget – was bungled off the ball deep in his own half. Daniel Munoz squared a pass and Olise rocketed a strike from range past Onana again.

The timid manner of United’s defeat will only raise more questions over Ten Hag’s suitability as the new owners look to make changes in the summer.

Manchester United’s season hits new low after Crystal Palace humiliation

Olise has been linked with a summer switch to Old Trafford and run amok at Selhurst Park with a dazzling display, scoring twice to move on to nine goals in 12 league starts this season.

Two sparkling efforts by Olise in the 12th and 66th minutes bookended this latest superb result for Oliver Glasner’s side, with Jean-Philippe Mateta and Tyrick Mitchell also on target to make it four wins in five for Palace.

Manchester United sacked their manager in the two seasons they lost 12 matches, 2013/14 and 2021/22. It doesn’t seem as though Erik ten Hag will be in the United dugout next year.

Reaction from Jamie Carragher on Sky Sports: “In Eze and Olise, Crystal Palace have got two players that would walk into Manchester United’s team. Under Oliver Glasner, they have been brilliant. Manchester United never looked like scoring.”

FT Crystal Palace 4-0 Man Utd

Manchester United missed the chance to move into the European places today.

There’s a real chance that they can’t leap above Newcastle or Chelsea in the last three games meaning they would have to beat Manchester City in the FA Cup to be in Europe next season.
