Manchester United have gotten their 3rd win in this year's pre-season tour against PL side C.Palace
Manchester United have managed to win 3 out of 3 matches so far in this year's pre-season tour, with today's win against Crystal Palace.
After wins against Liverpool and Melbourne Victory, the Red Devils managed to extend their perfect tour form with a 3-1 win against Crystal Palace. Erik ten Hag’s system is getting increasingly clear on the pitch and United fans are loving it.
Manchester United opened the score after 16 minutes, with a goal from Anthony Martial that came from a wonderful cross from Diogo Dalot, making it 3 goals from 3 matches for the Frenchman. The next goal came from a spectacular team play courtesy of Martial, Sancho, Van de Beek and finally Marcus Rashford, with the latter two grabbing the assist and goal. The final goal came from a Martial flick which sent Sancho through on goal who slotted it home in composed style.
After being substituted in the 65th minute, Will Fish was sent off for a foul on Victor Akinwale, denying a clear goalscoring chance.
Today's match had the most impressive performance of pre-season so far, which was expected as Ten Hag needed time to implement his style of play, and even though the performances arent perfect yet, they're definitely better than in prior years and on course to be what we got used to seeing while watching Ajax games the last 4 years.
The attacking trio of Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho thrilled going forward while gathering lots of praise from fans all over the world. Full-backs Diogo Dalot and Tyrell Malacia also got a lot of praise for their stellar performances in defence but especially going forward in attack.
United's tour continues with a match on Saturday 23/07 against Aston Villa in Burswood, Australia
