Jamie Carragher took aim at Manchester United players for “embarrassing” behaviour at full-time of Monday’s 4-0 defeat at Crystal Palace.

The Eagles hammered Erik ten Hag’s side at Selhurst Park with Michael Olise scoring twice alongside goals from Jean-Philippe Mateta and Tyrick Mitchell.

Despite the defeat, United’s away fans gave the players a defiantly positive reception at full-time which was picked up by the Sky Sports cameras.

Shortly afterwards, Antony was spotted walking off the pitch alongside Mason Mount and Andre Onana while talking with their hands over their mouths.

Liverpool legend and pundit Carragher slammed the “whispering” of the United players as they spoke to each other while avoiding lip-readers from deciphering their conversation.

“Just get off the pitch,” remarked Carragher.

“Talking, whispering behind your hand - you’ve been absolutely awful. You’re probably talking about one of the players or somebody else or the setup or the manager.

“Just get off the pitch, shut up and get in. You’ve been beaten 4-0... whispering, talking about other players. Honestly, embarrassing.”

United boss Ten Hag praised the reception his fans gave the Red Devils at full-time after his side were left outside the European qualification places.

“We have to put it right on Sunday,” he told BBC Sport. “We have to learn from this game and improve.

“I was really grateful [to the fans]. They back us. They see also we have our problems. You have to stick together. You have to take responsibility. The fans gave us such huge and tremendous support.”
