Man Utd player ratings: David De Gea shines but Diogo Dalot flops against Crystal Palace in front of Ten Hag

Manchester United lost 1-0 to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in front of incoming manager Erik ten Hag.

A miserable Premier League season has finally come to an end for United in the same fashion they have gotten used to throughout this term.

And that is another poor performance combined with a miserable loss.

Former Red Devils ace Wilfried Zaha scored the winner for Palace on 37 minutes after turning Diogo Dalot inside out and hitting David de Gea's bottom right corner.

But who stood out in another poor afternoon for the visitors and who disappointed?

Here's how SunSport's Kostas Lianos rated United stars on their final Premier League game of the season:

David de Gea – 7

David de Gea was by far Manchester United’s most prominent and consistent performer on the pitch at Selhurst Park.

A number of key saves and has no responsibility for Wilfried Zaha’s goal, without him United would have lost by much more

Diogo Dalot – 3

Diogo Dalot really struggled defensively against Crystal Palace’s left flank and carries responsibility for the goal as he was turned inside out by Zaha.

Didn’t contribute anything substantial when moving forward and was booked for a clumsy tackle on Conor Gallagher.

Victor Lindelof – 4

Victor Lindelof didn’t convince at the back during Crystal Palace’s fiery counter-attacks.

Lindelof also carries responsibility for Zaha’s winner as he gave him space for the shot.

Harry Maguire – 5

A miserable campaign comes to an end for United captain Harry Maguire, but he goes out with a much more decent performance.

Didn’t struggle as much as his centre-back partner Victor Lindelof and didn’t allow a lot of dangerous shots


Alex Telles – 5

Alex Telles didn’t struggle as much as his counterpart Diogo Dalot on the right as he did put together some explosive runs down the left.

But didn’t add much substance during a difficult afternoon for himself and his team.

Scott McTominay – 5

A poor display by United’s midfield in general as they couldn’t close spaces for Palace and get the ball to the forwards.

Some critical mistakes by Scott McTominay, who dispossessed at times and gave the ball away

Fred – 4

Fred struggled just like his midfield partner Scott McTominay as he couldn’t find solutions against Palace.

Had some heavy touches and was dispossessed at times, especially in the first half

Anthony Elanga – 5

Didn’t see much from Anthony Elanga as United’s attack was quite toothless throughout the encounter.

Had a good moment in the first half when he almost set Bruno Fernandes up in front of open goal but his ball was too strong

Bruno Fernandes – 5

A poor afternoon for Bruno Fernandes and his team as he wasn’t his usual influential self.

Didn’t add the necessary spark and couldn’t create any dangers for Palace goalkeeper Vicente Guaita

Hannibal Mejbri – 6

A lively performance from young Hannibal Mejbri who took advantage of this rare opportunity to compete in front of his soon-to-be new manager Erik ten Hag.

Mejbri put together some exciting runs down the wing and caused problems for Palace’s defence as he even forced a difficult save out of Vicente Guaita – was taken off after a booking.

Edinson Cavani – 4

Didn’t offer any attacking threat throughout the match and gave Palace a rather easy afternoon.

Edinson Cavani almost definitely played his farewell match for United ahead of a major overhaul


Juan Mata – 6

A lively performance by Juan Mata in his farewell match as a United player.

But his shots were wide and he couldn't add the necessary substance to get a result.

Shola Shoretire – 5

A well-deserved opportunity for Shola Shoretire but he couldn't make a difference on the pitch.

Would be interesting to know if Ten Hag is willing to give him chances next season.

Alejandro Garnacho – N/A
