The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern were left sweating until the final moments against Crystal Palace last night. The Red Devils were facing defeat until the closing stages, until Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic saved the day. A fierce last-minute strike from the latter sealed the three points for the Red Devils, and the result could prove crucial come the end of the season.
Clearly, though, despite the win, it was far from a perfect performance from the Red Devils. They seriously struggled to put their mark on the game for much of its duration, and that won’t please Jose Mourinho.
Particularly in the first half, a number of players looked poor, and once again – Paul Pogba has become a key target for criticism in the Transfer Tavern. He was uninvolved for much of the fixture, and that simply isn’t good enough for a player of his quality.

Indeed, many fans have pointed towards the midfielder’s poor display as a real concern, with supporters clearly not convinced by him.
Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
Not your best performance tonight but we'll take it, take the spotlight on Saturday against Liverpool and help us get the 3 points!

Stop overdoing with long diagonal passes! PLEASE.
Improve. You need to be among the best in the world. Too casual at times.

Today you were poor. But next game form goes out the window and you and the players need to step up if we are gonna get something from Liverpool.
