Man United are running out of excuses after poor Palace loss

MANCHESTER, England -- Several teams have got the better of Manchester United already this season, and it's easy to see why. Tottenham Hotspur are revitalised under Ange Postecoglou, Arsenal are genuine title challengers, Roberto De Zerbi's Brighton & Hove Albion are one of the most well-coached teams in the Premier League and Bayern Munich are Champions League contenders. However, Saturday's defeat -- 1-0 at home to Crystal Palace -- is almost inexplicable.

Of all the setbacks Erik ten Hag's team have suffered this season, this is the biggest red flag of the lot.
