Manchester United interim boss Ralf Rangnick is satisfied with the performance against Crystal Palace as the players gave him more than he expected on his debut:
Rangnick told the BBC: “I’m very happy with the way the team performed, the way they played, especially the first half-hour, that was exceptional, I thought. The only thing missing in that period was one or two nil … we had control of the game … I am very happy with the result and the clean sheet.
“I said in my first press conference, there are things we need to improve on, to get clean sheets, to get control of the game. What they [my players] showed was more than I expected, to be honest.
“Patience was important but we always tried to be on the front foot … that’s what I liked today … we were always trying to keep them away from goal … We wanted to play with two strikers and with two 10s, to get more control in the centre of midfield”
