Harry Maguire & Marcus Rashford were caught in a heated, explicit exchange of words vs Crystal Palace

The details of a heated back and forth between Manchester United pair Harry Maguire and Marcus Rashford during the club’s meeting with Crystal Palace last night have since taken centre stage online.

Selhurst stalemate

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men made the trip to Selhurst Park on Wednesday, for their latest Premier League outing.

The Red Devils headed into proceedings having seen the club’s title challenge essentially go up in smoke over the last couple of weeks, in turn forcing them to switch their focus to maintaining a spot in the top-4.

When all was said and done in the capital, however, United’s woes only deepened.

A frankly dreadful 90 minutes at Selhurst eventually saw the spoils shared, in a 0-0 stalemate.

Their latest result leaves Manchester United a full 14 points adrift of Premier League table-toppers Man City, with the likes of West Ham, Chelsea, Liverpool and Everton ready to put the pressure on the Reds in the race for Champions League football.

Rashford vs Maguire

And, as outlined above, en route to their third successive goalless draw on Wednesday, amid a heated atmosphere at Selhurst, tensions between two members of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad came close to boiling over.

The players in question? Harry Maguire and Marcus Rashford.

Footage and images have surfaced online, as detailed by those in attendance at last night’s clash, highlighting the details of an expletive-filled back-and-forth between the United stars.

The incident came about midway through the 2nd-half, when, amid a sustained spell of possession on the part of the visitors, Maguire lofted a ball forward into the final-third.

The stopper’s pass, however, was met by Rashford, who had been stood in an offside position.

This prompted United’s captain to shout: ‘Rashie, you’re offside!’

His fellow countryman, however, was evidently in no mood for criticism, and responded with: ‘What the f**k do you want me to do?’

Maguire retorted: ‘Get f**king onside!’

And from here, it quickly became clear that Rashford had heard quite enough from his skipper, hitting back with: ‘F**king knobhead’:
