Manchester United’s false entry into the Premier League. With Bruno Fernandes in the eleven, Solskjaer’s team was defeated at Old Trafford by 1-3 by Crystal Palace, in the second round of the championship (the first for the red devils due to the postponement of the first round).
After seven minutes of play, Andros Townsend opened the scoring and Wilfried Zaha extended the advantage on 74 ‘, converting a penalty. First, Jordan Ayew missed the maximum penalty but the move was repeated due to De Gea’s advance before the free kick was called. In the 79th minute, Donny Van de Beek, reinforcement contracted from Ajax and launched in the second half, reduced distances but Zaha would have scored twice in the 85 ‘to give scandal contours to the result.
