What Man Utd players did moments before Cole Palmer's winning goal speaks volumes

What Man Utd players did moments before Cole Palmer's winning goal speaks volumes

Manchester United collapsed right at the death as Chelsea sealed a dramatic victory.

What Manchester United did moments before Cole Palmer’s winning goal for Chelsea has been spotted.

On Thursday night, United produced a spirited comeback to come from 2-0 down to lead 3-2 at Stamford Bridge.

However, deep into stoppage time, the men in red completely capitulated as Palmer scored twice in two minutes to make it 4-3 and sent the Chelsea fans into pandemonium.

The winning goal came after a quick corner found Palmer in acres of space, the Englishman then unleashed a shot which went into the back of Andre Onana’s goal via a deflection off Scott McTominay.

After the match, a still from just before Palmer’s winning goal was posted on social media.

Moments before the corner was taken, United players were seen pointing at Palmer, who was unmarked.

However, no one managed to get out to mark the Chelsea man in time, meaning he had the time and space to plan his next move.

Speaking after the match, United boss Erik ten Hag has urged his players to learn from the Chelsea defeat.

He said: “It's definitely a setback, but now we have to deal with this, to get up again and we will do. We are resilient.

“You have seen today how resilientwe are, how we returned in the game, the quality of our football, how wecan play outstanding football in moments, some really high [moments]. But football is about results and you have to bring it over the time.”

Ten Hag added: “In between and also before the goals, we were unbelievable, but we made unexpected errors. The first goal, that is an unexpected error and we conceded a goal.

“So individual errors make it a bad result, but the team performance was brilliant and we played outstanding and dominated the game. In offence we had some brilliant players for example, this evening, like Antony.”

United will have the chance to put things right when they welcome Premier League leaders Liverpool to Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.
