Manchester United played out their third successive stalemate with a 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace in the Premier League at a misty Selhurst Park on Wednesday evening.

The heavy mist was a blessing at times, as it meant we couldn’t see the absolutely turgid football taking place on the Selhurst Park turf.

Nemanja Matic saw a deflected effort from range well saved by Vicente Guaita in the first half, but United otherwise rarely threatened. Dean Henderson denied Patrick van Aanholt late on to preserve a point for the Red Devils.

Let’s take a breath, recover from all of that excitement, and get into some player ratings.
