Wayne Rooney endured another frustratingly disappointing afternoon in Manchester United’s 0-0 Premier League draw at Crystal Palace on Saturday.
The draw left United fourth in the table, four points behind leaders Manchester City, and Palace in eighth position.
Here are the talking points from the encounter:
1. One hell of a reckless game at Selhurst Park:
The game saw a total of 26 fouls and 6 yellow cards including one for Matteo Darmian, suspending him for the next game. Anthony Martial and Yohan Cabaye were frequently on the receiving end of the tackles. The match officials would have to review their performance as there were many such instances where cards should have been brandished and weren’t.
