Dramatic Nemanja Matic volley completes Manchester United comeback at Crystal Palace

Nemanja Matic said Manchester United responded to Jose Mourinho's half-time team talk in rallying from two goals down to secure a 3-2 win at Crystal Palace on Monday.

To round off another weekend of Premier League football, Manchester United will travel down to glamorous South London today to take on Hodgson's injury-ravaged Crystal Palace.

The first change came at the start of the second half, with Marcus Rashford replacing Scott McTominay as United went with an all-out attack.

Fierce rivals and league leaders Manchester City now have a gap that's over 10 points to Jose Mourinho's men who are in second. "So, I would say there are four very good teams and one will be out of the Champions League".

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.

A lot had been made of the club's run of games that they have had to endure as of late, and while they have not picked up many points, they still remain just one point off of survival with their toughest remaining games being Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool.

For Manchester United, there are several players to keep an eye out for.


"You always need that little bit of luck to win a match in the last few minutes".

Goal difference alone is keeping Hodgson's team out of the relegation zone, but he has succeeded in giving Palace an identity and confidence and organising a shaky defence. Over their last five games, United have been held goalless twice and scored only five times.

Klopp and his players offer a different type of challenge and Jose Mourinho will truly prove that he still remains a top coach should he succeed in guiding his players to another win.

David de Gea will don the goalkeeper's gloves in the match as the Spaniard has been outrightly impressive in recent games. What I see of United is on Match of the Day, and you know from Match of the Day there is as much talking and analysis as what you see from the excerpts that are edited from the game.

And finally, with two minutes of added time to play, Matic restored United's tenuous foothold in second place.

With games against Chelsea and Liverpool to come, either side of a trip to fellow strugglers Huddersfield, Hodgson needs his side's injury crisis to be resolved, and quickly.

FW Alexis Sanchez, 5 - Quiet game from the Chilean.
