Manchester United wobbled to yet another goalless draw after huffing and puffing to a boring stalemate against Crystal Palace on Wednesday at Selhurst Park.
Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s side lacked the cutting edge as Palace sat deep and absolved everything thrown at them; the clash could have been postponed after fog took over the pitch but the two sides managed to see it through.
The result left United second on 51 points from 27 games, 14 behind runaway leaders Manchester City ahead of the Manchester derby on Sunday while Palace stayed 13th on 34 points and would celebrate the point earned on the foggy night.
"It's disappointing. We were just a little bit off. If you're not spot on you won't win games. Palace always make it hard for you," United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said after the match."
