For the first time ever, Crystal Palace won the first two games of the top season. This was a well-deserved victory that could have made them more at ease. Manchester United performed terribly, especially on the defensive end, but the Crystal Palace scored high for them.
For Manchester United, this was a distressing day, but it should not overshadow the outstanding performance of the Palace. This is not lucky-they have the form to win the six big clubs away, and they did it again.
This is the first premier league match that Manchester United lost since Bruno Fernandez joined in January. For them, it was a desperate day, especially in such a quiet forwarding window.
After rising to third place last season, Manchester United is taking on Crystal Palace today to start a new season of 2020/21.
