How Manchester Utd came from behind to stun Palace 3-2

07 March 2018

"I am speaking about my team generally".

And, with 91 minutes on the clock, Matic smashed in a dipping shot from 25 yards to consign Palace to another week in the drop zone and move United above Liverpool.

Crystal Palace: Wayne Hennessey (out of 10) 6, Aaron Wan-Bissaka 6, Martin Kelly 6, James Tomkins 6, Patrick van Aanholt 7, Andros Townsend 7, Luka Milivojevic 6, James McArthur 6, Jeffrey Schlupp 7, Christian Benteke 6, Alexander Sorloth 6.

Gary Neville has criticised Paul Pogba for performing as if "everything he does is like a YouTube or Instagram video" during the first half of Manchester United's come-from-behind win at Crystal Palace. Even at 2-0, one who's watched his team home and away since the 70s said: "I'd settle for a draw now".

"I don't like my teams to lose their organisation like we did, but it was an wonderful match and a very important win for us", said the Portuguese after a stunning added-time Nemanja Matic strike snatched the points.

"So the game was not a game that moved me in the moment because I don't like my teams to lose organisation like they did, but it was an unbelievable match and an fantastic comeback".

The victory marks the first time United turned around a two-goal shortfall since their victory against Hull in 2013 and the first time they scored a 90th minute victor since Rashford's goal against Hull in 2016. Their second goal made things much more hard for us, but Chris Smalling's goal was very important. "Maybe they like me here, because I always praise the atmosphere at Selhurst Park".

"That disgraceful, childish second goal changed everything. The quality is there but we have to be honest - we need to do more", Matic added.

Two goals later and the United world had a far sunnier complexion.

"We once again go away with no points and, like the game against Tottenham, I thought we deserved something".

"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".

Manchester United's Premier League title hopes have been diminished for a while with Manchester City dominating things at the top of the table, but United's hope of finishing second received an unexpected boost on Monday.
