Solskjaer "lost for words" after Rashford suffers racist abuse

Solskjaer

Ayew's goal was Palace's first goal of the 2019-20 Premier League season, while the win was Palace's first league triumph over United since 1991.

Daniel James curled in a brilliant equalizer in the 89th minute, seemingly earning United a point at Old Trafford, only for Palace left back Patrick van Aanholt to squeeze a shot under the body of goalkeeper David de Gea at the end of a counter-attack in the second minute of stoppage time.

A search of Rashford's name on Twitter in the minutes after his missed penalty kick showed several abusive messages with the word N***** in it.


Manchester United keep tripping themselves up.

"The first half was poor". "He wins the ball really well for our first goal, plays some great passes, and he knows - and we know - he's going to want the ball all the time".

"I thought, like the rest of the team, he grew in the game", Solskjaer said. "We didn't have that Midas touch today". Crystal Palace on Saturday with the memory of Monday's disappointing 1-1 draw at Wolverhampton still fresh. They've got pace up front, they've got quality up front and they had three chances, scoring two goals. While trailing 1-0, it is very much important to convert the chances and if this problem remained unsolved, it will haunt them in the coming future as well. They tied 1-1, good for one point each.


United were awarded a penalty after the hour mark, when Luka Milivojevic clipped Scott McTominay in the area. Last time at Molineux Paul Pogba missed the crucial penalty and got racially abused on social media and this time Marcus Rahsford repeated the feat.

"I think we were unlucky with Martial's clear and obvious penalty", said Solskjaer.

"We'll have to wait and see".


On Martial, Solskjaer added: "For the last five minutes we should have managed them better, because Anthony [Martial] was injured".
