Jonny Evans FAILED a Manchester United fitness test vs Crystal Palace



| Last Updated:


Reports have emerged that Jonny Evans failed a fitness test on Monday evening before Manchester United lost 4-0 to Crystal Palace.

During a game where Manchester United very much needed to take all three points, Erik ten Hag‘s men put in one of their worst displays of the season.

During a period where there have been too many injuries, Casemiro and Jonny Evans started as the defensive pair and coughed up two of the worst performances.

Michael Olise, Jean-Philippe Mateta, and Tyrick Mitchell were the four goalscorers at Selhurst Park as United fell to eighth in the league table, but it was Evans and Casemiro who were at fault for the goals.

It has now been revealed by AttackingFooty that Jonny Evans failed a fitness test ahead of the game, but the club decided to play him anyway.

With Raphaël Varane, Willy Kambwala, Lisandro Martínez, Harry Maguire, and Victor Lindelöf out, Evans was the club’s only centre-back who might make it for the tie.

Evans played the full 90 minutes but was destroyed by Crystal Palace’s attacking line. The 36-year-old looked completely lost throughout the fixture.

With United facing Arsenal, Newcastle United, and Brighton in the next two weeks, the club could drop even further down the table should the first-team centre-backs return soon.
