Marcus Rashford penalty miss vs Crystal Palace: Watch Manchester United star miss the spot kick by mere inches as the Red Devils fail to equalise.
Manchester United gave their fans a glimmer of hope two weeks back when they slammed Chelsea 4-0 in their opening match. Unfortunately for the Red Devils, they haven’t had a lot to chirp about ever since.

Manchester United played Wolverhampton and came back with a solitary point despite being the better side of the two. It looks like they may not even get that one point as time runs out fast with United still trailing by a goal.
United started the match positively with attacking play reminiscent of their heydays. Unfortunately for the Red devils, Crystal Palace managed to find the back of the net with their first shot on goal. The game has just gone downhill for United ever since.
Last week, Manchester United had the opportunity to win the match when they were awarded a penalty. Paul Pogba stepped up to the challenge but failed to make the spot kick count. A lot of fuss was made over Marcus Rashford not taking the penalty.
Today, against the Eagles, Manchester United was awarded yet another penalty when Scot McTominay was dropped hard in the 18-yard box. This time the spot kick was given to Marcus Rashford. Rashford hasn’t had the best of games today and this was his opportunity to turn it around.
Marcus Rashford penalty miss vs Crystal Palace
Rashford, ran diagonally towards the ball. The intention was right, the placement was right as well. The ball was kicked to the left, near the post. The keeper had in fact jumped the opposite direction. Unfortunately for the Reds, the ball kissed the post and ricocheted across the goal line to safety.

At the time of writing, United are still trailing with under 10 minutes left to the game. If United fail to equalise, then the team from Manchester will have seen all three possible results in all their three matches so far.
