Manchester United have confirmed that Mason Mount’s substitution against Crystal Palace was not due to injury.
Erik ten Hag, though, substituted Mount at halftime, with Victor Lindelöf coming on in place of the midfielder – and some raised concerns about why this may have been.
Mount only returned to action for United when he started against Crystal Palace, having been injured since the side lost 2-0 against Tottenham Hotspur, so rightfully some thought that he may have had a recurrence of the initial problem.
The club, however, have thankfully explained that Mason Mount’s substitution was a pre-planned one by Ten Hag as he continues to manage the player’s minutes returning from injury.
The fixture saw Mason Mount collect his first goal contribution of the season as Casemiro met his cross from a corner to score the club’s second goal of the evening at Old Trafford.
The other two goals came from Alejandro Garnacho and Anthony Martial, who are now both off the mark for the current campaign and will look to kick on from now.
Crystal Palace will return to Old Trafford on Saturday as the two teams face off again, this time in the Premier League.
