Marcus Rashford Misses Penalty As Manchester United Slump To Defeat

Marcus Rashford Misses Penalty As Manchester United Slump To Defeat

Marcus Rashford has missed a penalty for Manchester United this afternoon after the controversy of Monday night as Manchester United slumped to their first ever defeat to Crystal Palace at Old Trafford.

Following the controversy of Paul Pogba taking and missing a spot kick against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday night, Marcus Rashford stepped up in the second half to try and equalise for United.

However, Rashford struck the post with his kick and Twitter reacted to the England internationals attempt.

After Rashford taking and scoring his penalty in the opening game of the season against Chelsea, Pogba took one against Wolves and had it saved by Rui Patricio.

Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville picked up on the change, lambasting the attitude of the players.

He told Sky Sports: "Initially I was fuming at Pogba, I thought 'it's typical you, it's selfish, why are you even thinking of taking a penalty off a player?'

"But actually even last week's one, I'm looking at it and it's weird, something's not right.

"They have a long chat and I don't like it. Why is there a debate on who is taking the penalty?

"There should never be a debate but there wasn't a leader out there and they couldn't make a decision between them.

"Rashford scored last week - take the penalty. Pogba has missed four in the last 12 months."

In today's game, Jordan Ayew shockingly put Roy Hodgson's side ahead in the first half.

This is despite United's dominance of the ball for much of the opening exchanges.

Daniel James equalised for United in the 89th minute for his second goal of the season and it looked like he'd salvaged a point.

But Patrick Van Aanholt scored in the 93rd minute to condemn United to their first defeat of the season.

Luke Shaw also went off with an injury to compile the misery on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.
