Patrick Vieira laments Crystal Palace lack of ‘bravery’ in narrow loss to Man United

It turned out to be the only goal of the game as interim manager Ralf Rangnick started his stay at the Red Devils with three points.
United dominated possession throughout, ending the game with 61 percent of the ball, and Vieira was frustrated with the way his team played when given the chance to keep it.
“It wasn’t our best performance,” he said. “We defended well as a team but in possession we were not brave enough. I firmly believe there was room for us to play better.
“I thought the game would end in a draw; the two teams didn’t create a lot of chances. When we had the opportunity to score through Jordan [Ayew], we didn’t take it and we got punished right away.
“This is the next level, we have to learn, we have to learn fast.
“When you look at the number of chances they’ve created, I think a draw would have been a fair result. “
