Manchester United player ratings: Jesse Lingard and Victor Lindelof poor performance, David de Gea and Marcus Rashford Miss vs Crystal Palace

Man Utd lost 2-1 against Crystal Palace in the Premier League fixture due to a late Van Aanholt winner when Daniel James had appeared to have spared them defeat.

David de Gea
Easily beaten by Jordan Ayew for the opener but saved well from Wilfried Zaha as Palace nearly went 2-0 up in the first-half. At fault for the winner. 4
Aaron Wan-Bissaka
Started superbly again down the right and really drove the attack forward. Once Palace became a threat, he had to contend with Zaha. 6

Harry Maguire
Began well and played Marcus Rashford through for a chance at 0-0. Positioning for Ayew's goal was too porous. 6
Victor Lindelof
Did not convince against Chelsea and Wolves and he was easily outjumped by Jeffrey Schlupp to regress to his fearful 2017 level. 3

Luke Shaw
United's early dominance was underpinned by both full-backs but for the second month running Shaw succumbed to injury. 6

Paul Pogba
Tried to make things happen and was allowed to take a free-kick by Rashford. But things did not come off. 5

Scott McTominay
His place would be in genuine jeopardy had United signed a midfielder. Against teams who sit back, McTominay looks limited. Palace sat back. 4
Jesse Lingard
Did not justify his selection and one aimless pass through to nobody elicited groans from supporters. Not the solution at No.10. 2
Daniel James
Spurned a good chance to put United ahead but rushed his shot. More composed than at Wolves, kept going and scored a brilliant equaliser. 7

Marcus Rashford
Wasted a good chance when one-on-one at 0-0 by losing his footing, cocked up free-kicks and then missed a penalty to prolong the spotkick debate. 4
Anthony Martial
Easily United's most threatening forward whenever he got the ball but just did not receive it enough. Gary Cahill should have been sent off for deliberately tripping him. Assisted James. 7
Ashley Young
Failed to deliver a killer pass when he spent enough time in Palace's third. 5
Mason Greenwood
Helped win the penalty. 6
Juan Mata
Came on too late. N/A
