Manchester United made it three full games without a goal as they were held 0-0 by Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. Following stalemates with Real Sociedad and Chelsea, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have been hoping his side returned to goalscoring form.

But against the miserly Eagles, United registered just one shot on target as their faltering Premier League title challenge took yet another blow.

The draw in South London means Manchester City are a staggering 14 points ahead, with just 13 games of the season remaining.

It does however, raise question marks about their ability to secure a top four finish, with the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool and Everton all in reach.

After two shutouts in the last week, Solskjaer was once again allowed to rely upon Edinson Cavani after the Uruguayan returned from injury.

That failed to spark them to life as further doubts are raised about the Red Devils under Solskjaer.

Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live, pundit Pat Nevin took aim at Marcus Rashford’s body language, asking whether he is becoming ‘fed up’ of playing out of the lef-side of United’s attack.

He said: “Marcus Rashford’s body language just doesn’t look right. It’s noticeable with somebody like him as he always has good body language, he’s generally always up for it.

“I don’t know… is he a bit fed up being stuck on the left wing? Does he want to play a bit more central? Who knows.”

“Crystal Palace have looked the better side in this second half,” Nevin added after the full-time whistle.

“Bruno Fernandes has had very little impact in this game. Marcus Rashford, exactly the same.

“It’s a fair result. Maybe Manchester United had a bit more of the possession and the play in the dangerous areas but did that make them deserving of the win?

“I think that would’ve been pushing it a little bit. It’s been disappointing from United. There just hasn’t been enough quality.”

On the result, United boss Solskjaer admitted his side failed to hit their usual level of performance, bemoaning a number of periods of sloppy possession.

“It’s disappointing. We were just a little bit off,” he told Sky Sports. “If you’re not spot on you won’t win games. Palace always make it hard for you. In the second half we never got going.

“We kept giving the ball away. There were times in the first half we built some pressure, had some half decent chances but kept giving it away. Then you don’t build momentum and that’s the game you get.”

The bore draw also means that it’s the first time since October 2015 under Louis van Gaal where United have failed to score in three consecutive matches, a run which coincidentally included a shutout against Palace.
