Former Blackburn and Chelsea striker Chris Sutton claims Sofyan Amrabat looks like a fish out of water. Manchester United were unable to repeat Tuesday commanding 3-0 Carabao cup win. Joachim Anderson deflected first half effort was the only goal of the game , despite dominating possession. Erik Ten Hag was unable to break through with Sergio Reguilon unavailability for the game. Amrabat was drop again to the left but surprisingly he played well. The Moroccan was excellent in that role during Tuesday cup clash drifting into midfield and marshalling Rak Sakyi with ease.
Also, he found things a lot harder on Saturday against experience Jordan Ayew. And after he gave away a soft free -kick midway through the second half. Sutton provided his verdict on a tough afternoon. Given away a free -kick been driven back back towards his own goal and he palms it, a keeper would be proud of that. Sutton told BBC Radio 5Live. He’s not looking comfortable in the left back position today, like a fish out of water.
On the other hand, united continue to push for late equalizer but failed to generate many clear cut chances. This defeat marks their fourth defeat of the season already. Crystal Palace more than deserved their win, Sutton added. We know if they get their noses in Infront they are very difficult side to break down. A fantastic strike from Anderson and fantastic defensive display.
Manchester United played very well of which will be dangerous for any opponent in the rest of the fixtures. Seasons are sometimes unpredictable, so we wait to see what will happen.
