Crystal Palace 4-0 Man Utd: Erik ten Hag criticises side as Casemiro has night to forget

Ten Hag’s future as United manager has been up for debate for months – despite the Dutchman having a year left on his contract.

They have taken 10 points from the past 11 Premier League games and conceded late goals against Fulham, Brentford, Chelsea, Liverpool and Burnley in that run, costing them 10 points.

Ten Hag says he is battling against an injury crisis, the like of which he has never known throughout his managerial career, but pressure will be growing on new owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe to clarify Ten Hag’s situation.

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has little sympathy.

He said: “This is one of the most poorly coached teams in the Premier League, that is a fact. Ten Hag needs performances, he needs a belief.

“You have to make us believe there is something there. I would expect Man Utd’s under-23 team not to lose 4-0 like that. I have been coached by some of the top coaches and a lot of what I see here is just wrong.”

Everton’s former United defender Ashley Young, added: “If they put on displays like tonight, they will miss out on Europe.

“If they aren’t willing to at least run about, they will be in trouble. It has been an up and down season, but tonight too many players were not at the right level. Palace made it look like men against boys.

“I think it is as bad as it gets.”
