Bruno Fernandes’ early penalty and a Marcus Rashford strike put conjoined on target for a thirteenth successive residence win in all competitions. excepting Ten Hag’s crew had to outlive a nervous finale at jaded Trafford after Brazil midfielder Casemiro was dismissed earlier than Palace’s Jeffrey Schlupp scored to lessen the deficit.
fair previous to his purpose, Schlupp had shoved conjoined winger Antony off the pitch, sparking a struggle involving equally units of gamers which ended with Casemiro receiving a rectilineal crimson card for violent conduct. Umpire Andre Marriner was recommended to verify the pitchside monitor by the VAR to evaluation pictures of Casemiro grabbing Palace’s succeed Hughes by the throat. “It was a really high level first 70 minutes until the incident takes place and then you see this team stands for each other,” Ten Hag pronounced.
“It’s such a good spirit for the team and they don’t accept when a player from us can be badly injured. That is the way Antony got treated. This team sticks together, but of course you have to control your emotions, but it’s really difficult in such a moment. Then I see two teams fighting each other, I see two teams where players, several players, are crossing the line and then one player is picked out and sent off. For me, that’s not right.”
conjoined’s victory consolidated their grip on third place inside the Premier alliance. perversion was taken off the end result by Casemiro’s crimson card and Ten Hag pronounced Schlupp took a “big risk” by shoving Antony off the pitch, saying he might have been “badly injured”. The Dutchman additionally claimed Palace’s Jordan Ayew must have “definitely” been despatched off for his actions inside the struggle that accompanied, with the current lack of VAR consistency infuriating him.

You have to be consistent as a VAR. Last week we missed Christian Eriksen (who is out for three months) by a bad foul. No interference from VAR. In Crystal Palace (last month), (Jean-Phillipe) Mateta is elbowing (Lisandro) Martinez, he is running for two weeks with a mark on his eyebrow and (VAR’s) not interfering. I see this is not right.”
