And the Palace boss believes Leroy Lita's decisive goal was symptomatic of the team's performance on the day.

Holloway said: "We struggled to get our game going and they seemed to have a bit more belief about them than us.

"The second half was better and I thought we looked the team more likely to grab a goal but it just wasn't to be.

"The defending for the goal was poor, we let them get a cross in and Leroy did what Leroy Lita does and put the ball in the back of the net.

"I don't think we deserved to lose, but did I think we did enough to win it? Probably not, I felt a draw would have been a fair result."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
