100% long ball, 3/4 dribbles, 7 tackles: Man United star set himself apart in loss vs. Palace


The Manchester United team lost against Crystal Palace 0–1, which was their fourth Premier League loss in as many games this season.

United was defeated and Palace secured all three points thanks to a goal from Joachim Andersen in the first half.

United controlled 78% of the ball compared to the Eagles’ 22%.

Four of the 19 shots that Erik ten Hag’s team took on goal were on target. Palace, on the other hand, had eight attempts at goal, although only two of those required an intervention from Andre Onana.

With 733 passes, United’s completion percentage was 88%.

With a pass accuracy of 65%, the opposition completed 219 passes.

Mason Mount was one player that stood out a little bit from the most of his peers who were underprivileged.

After spending a considerable amount of time out due to injury, the former Chelsea player started his second straight match for United.

Before he was substituted, Mount spent 77 minutes on the pitch and made 68 touches with the ball. With an astounding 93% pass accuracy, he completed 38 out of 41 passes that he tried.

Only one crucial pass was accomplished by him.

With just one of his three crossing attempts, the England international found his mark.

There were two times he attempted to ping the ball long. In both cases, he was successful. Mount deflected one strike.

The centre back started four dribbles. Of these, he finished three. In sixteen ground fights, he emerged victorious eleven times.

Of the two aerial challenges he had to compete in, Mount prevailed in one. In addition to winning an amazing seven tackles, the 24-year-old made one interception.

(Sofascore statistics were used.)

After such a heartbreaking loss, he is undoubtedly one of the few United players who can still maintain their composure.
