'Do you want to lose?', 'Please bin' – Man United fans fume as Mourinho starts one man v Palace
Jose Mourinho named his starting XI for the Premier League clash against Crystal Palace on Monday night and fans can’t believe Chris Smalling is starting over Eric Bailly.
The 28-year-old enforcer has played the last six straight Premier League games but fans were hoping that Mourinho would start Bailly today.
The team news was announced on the official Man United Twitter page ahead of the 8pm kick-off.

Tonight though, they have to get past Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park and fans are dreading the thought of 90 minutes with Smalling at the back.
Here are the best reactions from Man United fans ahead of the game that is set for broadcast on Sky Sports:
Can we please bin Young, Smalling, Fellaini & Darmian in the summer. I don't want the thought looming of them possibly starting at my club for another year.
