The deadline-day acquisition, who joined on loan from Fiorentina, made his club debut last week against Palace in a Carabao Cup third-round match, making an impression on his full English football debut.
Tyrell Malacia, Luke Shaw, and Sergio Reguilon were all injured, therefore the Moroccan international started at left back against Roy Hodgson’s team. However, after 25 minutes, he conceded the free kick that resulted in Palace’s first goal.
Amrabat pushed Jordan Ayew over as he appeared to be going nowhere on the right side, and Joachim Andersen volleyed home to give the hosts the lead.
The midfielder had a challenging first half, giving up a lot of pointless free kicks as United struggled in front of their own supporters.
Former goalkeeper Schmeichel reviewed the game at halftime and focused on his subpar first half performance.
Schmeichel told Premier League Productions, “We talked about Amrabat before the game. It is his first full Premier League game, and he has just not had a great game so far.”
He commits a careless foul, resulting in this free kick.
I anticipated a Danish player, United’s Rasmus Hojlund, to score at the other end today, so what an incredible goal Joachim Anderson scored.
Some United supporters questioned Andre Onana’s involvement in Andersen’s goal on social media after he committed a disastrous error against Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
Schmeichel, however, absolved the Cameroon international of any wrongdoing.
Whether the custodian or the defence could have performed better is a topic we may discuss. Just take in this. It is an excellent conclusion.
Alejandro Garnacho, Casemiro, and Anthony Martial all scored goals as United easily defeated Palace 3-0.
