Manchester United's season plumbed new depths as they were thrashed 4-0 by a Michael Olise-inspired Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

After Newcastle and Chelsea's weekend wins dropped United to eighth, Erik ten Hag's side needed to produce a response in their bid for European qualification - instead, their efforts were called "shambolic" by Ashley Young, the former United player, on Monday Night Football.

Casemiro, in particular, suffered a bruising evening after once again being pressed into action at centre-back. He was left floundering by Olise for Palace's first goal, with Jamie Carragher calling his attempted tackle "embarrassing".

Jonny Evans was then comprehensively beaten by Jean-Philippe Mateta as the in-form striker bludgeoned in Palace's second, with Tyrick Mitchell then prodding in a third.

There was still time for Casemiro to contribute to another Palace goal, being robbed by Daniel Munoz on the touchline, with Olise then whipping a shot past Andre Onana, whose positioning was questionable.

Palace declared on four, satisfied with another memorable win less than three months into Glasner's promising reign - but United will once again dominate the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
