Crystal Palace 2 Manchester United 3: Late Matic stunner completes breathless comeback

  • Mourinho will be without six United players against Crystal Palace

"Honestly, I know what you're writing as a effect of yesterday", Mourinho told reporters at Selhurst Park, 24 hours after Conte's side came under fire for their defensive approach in a 1-0 defeat at runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Victory over Palace has allowed United to move back into second spot in the Premier League table.

The drama wasn't over and in stoppage-time Matic stole the points for United, seizing the loose ball on the edge of the Palace area and cracking his strike into top corner to spark wild celebrations from the visitors.

The Portuguese tactician's side trailed 1-0 at the break, and things got worse when Patrick van Aanholt extended the Eagles' lead three minutes into the second half.

Manchester United secured a win against a gutsy Crystal Palace team to maintain sole possession of second place.

"Fantastic match for the people in front of the screen and at the stadium, hard match for me because my team made so many mistakes".

United appealed in vain for offside but the flag stayed down and van Aanholt held his nerve to slot past De Gea for his first goal since May 2017. "There's not been many games where we've come back". True, much more is expected of star players like Alexis Sanchez and Paul Pogba - who has no issue with Jose Mourinho, despite what you've read elsewhere.

"We're in the relegation zone, but after seven games everyone told me that we were relegated". "When I received the ball and it bounced I knew it was going to be a good shot but I didn't know it would be a goal".

Aguero, 29, still scored 33 goals in all competitions, more than he ever had for City in a single season, but often found himself on the sidelines in the second half of the season as Guardiola opted instead for Gabriel Jesus. "But it is a goal of two extra points".

"We were eight points adrift of any sort of safety, now I think we're one point adrift of safety and there's lots of games to go".

"Not many, but he's scored a few goals - this season against Benfica [it was] half of the goal for him, half of the goal for the Benfica goalkeeper".

United had slipped to third before the game behind this Saturday's opponents Liverpool.

Smalling feels it must have been disheartening for Manchester United's league rivals to see them coming back in such a manner at a hard away ground such as Selhurst Park.
