Garnacho was taken off 30 minutes after replacing Wout Weghorst in the 59th minute as Ten Hag shut up shop with United in a precarious 2-1 lead.

Defender Harry Maguire took his place and Ten Hag warned Garnacho that he has to accept being substituted.

The United boss told MUTV:”First we had to see how they changed, then you have to anticipate and see how we can close, how to be compact, how we close the gaps, how we get away from our goal but also still have a threat in attack.

“I think we had to change something.

“It’s not always nice bringing off a player who we brought on but it’s in the interests of the team and the player has to accept that.”

Garnacho is very highly rated at Old Trafford and is on the brink of agreeing a new five snd a half year contract.

But as the most inexperienced player on the pitch against Palace Ten Hag decided to take him off.

The decision paid off as United held onto their lead to continue their winning streak at home.
