One outstanding moment of the game was when Ten Hag, known for his perfectionist tendencies, was left fuming at De Gea for sticking with the ball too long from a back pass.

In a clip from the match doing rounds on social media, the United boss can be heard yelling an expletive at his goalkeeper, who only kicked the ball upfield as he was being closed down by a Crystal Palace attacker.

Shortly after De Gea kicked the ball away, mics picked up Ten Hag screaming, ”What the F*** are you doing?”

It was Anthony Martial who opened the scoring for his side, benefiting from a Diogo Dalot cross before Rashford double the lead in the second half after being teed up by Donny Van de Beek.
