Crystal Palace 2 v Manchester United 3 - story of the match

After the match, Matic revealed what Jose Mourinho told his team at halftime.

Palace were a matter of minutes away from taking a point on home soil before Nemanja Matic scored a stunning strike to give United a 3-2 triumph.

United were made to pay three minutes into the second half after Patrick van Aanholt beat David de Gea's near post.

"We're back in the relegation zone but after seven games we were eight points adrift and everyone told me we were already down".

"I can not tell you half of the things I told my team at half-time because there would be lots of bleeping on television", Mourinho said, as quoted by Manchester Evening News.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho surprisingly leapt to the defence of former club Chelsea and embattled coach Antonio Conte, calling criticism of them "unfair".

Mourinho had at half-time introduced Marcus Rashford for Scott McTominay and adopted a more attacking shape, and after Palace went 2-0 up it began to show.

"It was a nice goal", said Matic. "We made changes. The players accepted the risk, and then I have to admit we were a bit lucky". "We had unbelievable attitude and had very good quality football in the second half, but we made so many defensive mistakes and I'm not just speaking of my defenders".

He wasn't being overly pessimistic; he sat with his face sunk into his hands as United roared back with three second-half goals.

The 29-year-old was thrilled with his contribution to their incredible win and it was deemed an even more wonderful feat as it was his first goal in a United shirt.

The Red Devils looked down and out early in the second half last night as they went two goals behind.

Sergio Aguero's next goal will his 200th for Manchester City, but it is the Argentine's willingness to do much more than just score that has won the confidence of his manager Pep Guardiola.

With the win, United climbed back to the second spot in the league table with 62 points, two more than Liverpool who stand third.

Matic is likely to be a key player for the Reds in a crucial run of three successive home games in three different competitions, starting with the visit of rivals Liverpool to Old Trafford on Saturday.
