It promises to be a good season for Manchester United as they English team has put up an excellent performance so far in the pre-season games.
The Red Devils, after defeating English rivals ‘Liverpool’ on Saturday, went ahead to beat Melbourne Victory to a 4-1 palm at the giant Melbourne Cricket Ground, the home of the opposing team.
Manchester United stars today, continued their wining streak against Crystal Palace, under the management of Erik Ten Hag.
The match kicked off at about 11:10 WAT, and the players of both teams were seen making tireless efforts to get a goal, as early as 17 minutes into the game, Man United striker ‘Anthony Martial’ wasted no time to get the pigskin behind the net after getting a super assist from United full-back D. Dalot.
Several goal attempts made from both sides proved futile up until the first half of the game was drawn to a close by the referee Martin Atkinson.
Three minutes into the second half of the competition, Manchester United’s midfielder D. van de Beek, who came on as a substitution for S. McTominay, assisted Marcus Rashford to get the second goal of the game.
It was so much energy and applauding from the United spectators and at the 59th minute, Jadon Sancho scored yet another goal for the Red Devils, making it a 3 – Nil lead.
Crystal Palace, continued to press hard for a goal but none was forthcoming till the 74th minute when the club’s defender managed to get the ball dancing past United’s goalkeeper, De Gea, into the net.
The goal by Crystal Palace seemed to have brought hope for the team as both fans and the players began to see the hope of equalising but were kept from doing so by the strong opposition defence.
The Match was brought to a conclusion after a goalless 3 minutes of extra play with United bagging another win.
