Manchester United’s defensive struggles seem to be a recurring issue. It’s disappointing for fans when their team doesn’t perform up to expectations.

Sky Sports commentator Alan Smith has slammed Manchester United‘s defending after Jean Phillipe-Mateta put Crystal Palace 2-0 up in the Premier League clash at Selhurst Park on Monday.

The Palace striker had plenty of room as he raced towards a disorganised United defence. Jonny Evans was left alone to mark Mateta before being dribbled past with ease as the Frenchman doubled Palace’s lead with a fine strike.

“It definitely sums up United,” Smith told Sky Sports. “Defensively they have been a car crash, they really have. I feel for Jonny Evans really here, faced with a one-vs-one against an inform centre-forward. He just does nothing.
