Maguire is playing well and might be winning over the crowd. His effort on goal ther was a fair way wide but from certain angles will have looked close. There were spontaneous cheers when the fans realised the identity of the shooter and the boos seem to have dissipated without anyone knowing.
Malacia has been on corner duty on the right side and his delivers have been really fast and go deep into the box, difficult for keepers to deal with. May not be long before we see him grab an assist from one. A confident Martial continues to shine as he bags his third goal of pre-season with a brilliant finish from Dalot’s pass. A dominant and slick display from Ten Hag’s side in the opening 45 minutes.
Van de Beek is fighting for a spot in midfield and he is certainly staking a claim after just a few minutes. He set up the goal, has been tidy on the ball and just came close after arriving into the box to get on the end of a pass.
Jordan Ayew seemingly doesn’t know it’s a friendly! He goes in massively late on Fernandes, which Fred takes umbridge with and a shoving match begins between the pair before they are separated.
Moments after Palace have a shot to show they’re still in the tie, Sancho puts the match beyond all doubt. More great interplay sees a Martial flick send Sancho through with the whole half to himself. He feints Matthews and slots it home in composed style.
