Loads of fans react to Man United’s ‘lucky’ first-half against Crystal Palace

Manchester United and Crystal Palace have reached half-time in a game which has severe implications in the race for the top-four.

After seeing rivals Chelsea and Leicester City win their latest games against Norwich City and Sheffield United respectively all the pressure is on the Reds to grab all three points this evening.

The first-half has been far from a sporting spectacle with United starting much the slower of the two sides.

Crystal Palace who obviously took notes from Southampton’s performance on Monday came flying out of the blocks and looked to press the Reds intensely.

Palace winger Wilfred Zaha came closest to opening the scoring after just five minutes when he got the better of ex-Eagles defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka and fired a shot on goal which forced David De Gea into action.

It wasn’t until around the 35 minute mark that United finally started to grow into the game with increasing joy coming down the right hand side.

United attacker Marcus Rashford opened the scoring just shy of the half-time break after some decent link-up play in the box with team-mate Bruno Fernandes.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be keen to regroup his side and inspire a better second-half display despite narrowly leading the game 1-0.

Fans have taken to their social media to express their concerns and relief after their side’s lacklustre first-half display.
