Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has hit out at the players over their poor performance in our defeat against Crystal Palace.

The former United winger has urged the club’s board to back manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with new signings.

Asked if the result is a call for new signings to be brought in, Giggs told Premier League Productions: “Yeah maybe. I think the fans will want that.

“The fans won’t be happy now because even before, if they’d got a positive result, they still want to see new faces though the door and also a few going out as well. So there’s a lot to think of for Ole and the board.”

“We can talk about new players coming in, but there’s enough quality on that pitch to beat Crystal Palace.

“Just the intensity wasn’t there. Crystal Palace wanted it more, in the 50-50s, they just looked better for the whole 90 minutes.

“OK when United scored you thought they could go on and get another, but Palace could have scored more. With Zaha staying onside, a little more quality with the final pass, actually Palace could have gone and broke and scored more.

“Palace were the better team, they started better, but they haven’t had to do a lot for their goals, they haven’t had to do something special. They were soft goals which could have been prevented. Not enough intensity, not enough will to stop the cross.

“And then Harry Maguire has got to close down and do more to stop the shot. But it’s not good enough from the two centre-halves. Wilf is sharp enough to get to the first ball, but that’s not good enough from a United centre-half. They’re 2-1 down, 10 minutes to go, you have to go and win that.”
