Man United’s dreams of making it a tenth successive win were broken by Michael Olise of Crystal Palace. Manu United’s hopes of moving up to second place in the English Premier League table have been halted for now. The last gasp equalized led to a one-all draw for an away game with Crystal Palace on Wednesday.

A stunning turnaround was on the cards and seemed a very distinct possibility from a Bruno Fernandez goal a little before half-time. But Michael Olise took a superb free kick to restore parity in stoppage time.

The week has seen talks centered more around the ownership bid made by Jim Ratcliffe, as he moved in to gain control of England’s most valued and decorated club and bring it back to its former glory. But the politics going on off the pitch are not expected to affect the players, as Man United are in the pink of health.

Loss Of A Point Could Prove Crucial For Man United’s Title Aspiration

They brimmed with confidence even as they scored off a Chris Kristen Eriksen pass. Man United controlled long stretches in the second 45 minutes but finally caved in as Olise put a curling free kick across de Gea.

United moves into the third spot with 39 points. They have the same as Man City, but the latter has a better goal difference. Arsenal remains on top with 47 points and is set to meet Man United on Sunday.

Manchester City next faces Tottenham Hotspur, who are in fifth place at the moment, on Thursday. The loss of a point to Palace may well turn out to be costly for Man United and their title aspiration. The gap with Arsenal has now widened to 8 points even as the Gunners have an extra game in hand.
