Late Matic strike gives United win in 5-goal Palace thriller

Late Matic strike gives United win in 5-goal Palace thriller

For Jose Mourinho, two points is crucial in this year's Premier League campaign.

United went 2-0 down before they rallied back in the game with goals from Chris Smalling, Romelu Lukaku and Matic to emerge victorious.

Andros Towsend got Palace's first goal and he teed up a teasing cross towards the back post for Christian Benteke to latch onto with ten minutes remaining at Selhurst Park.

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson was left saddened after his side let a lead slip in a 3-2 loss to Manchester United on Monday.

It's hardly a gamble rotating the squad when you have so many quality options in reserve and while people have paid good money to watch the game at Anfield tonight, Klopp could still put out a strong side even without his first choice front three.

"We took the game to Manchester United".

United's players switched off for Palace's second goal in the 48th, Jeffrey Schlupp taking a quick free kick and Patrick van Aanholt running through before applying the finish.

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. "Maybe they like me here, because I always praise the atmosphere at Selhurst Park".

Mourinho started by saying that "Marcus was good" when he came on for Scott McTominay at half-time as he "immediately created unsafe situations and opened more spaces" for other players to get into and that caused chaos for the Palace defenders.

"After the second goal it was very hard for us to come back; we showed character and did exactly what the manager wanted us to do".

"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".

Mourinho further added: "This season against Benfica, it was half a goal for him and half a goal for the Benfica goalkeeper [Mile Svilar]".

During Jesus's two-month layoff, Aguero doubled his tally for the season to move onto 30 goals and re-establish himself as City's number one striker.

The win lifted United back above Liverpool in the race for Champions League qualification _ five days before the fierce rivals meet at Old Trafford.
