Nemanja Matic believes that Manchester United need to start taking more risks going forward after the 0-0 draw to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
United missed the chance to consolidate their grip on second place in the Premier League with a third straight goalless draw.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side lacked urgency and enthusiasm on a frustrating night where few chances were created in South London.
Edinson Cavani’s return to lead the line could not spark an improvement and his teammates floundered in a game void of any real quality.
Matic came closest to scoring for the Reds in the first-half and admitted his side were simply ‘ not good enough against ‘compact’ Palace.
The Serbian added that United have to do much better as they prepare for Sunday’s Manchester derby against runaway league leaders Man City.
