Matic Screamer Completes Extraordinary Manchester United Comeback Vs Crystal Palace

Fellaini is out after knee surgery

Nemanja Matic struck in stoppage time as Manchester United came from two goals down to secure a vital 3-2 victory at Crystal Palace.

Andros Townsend had fired Palace ahead during the first half before Patrick van Aanholt doubled the advantage after the break. Drawing two and losing three of their last five, the Eagles now find themselves sat in 17th position as the teams around them have picked up points.

With the win, United climbed above Liverpool back into second place in the table.

Paul Pogba has scored in both of his Premier League games against Crystal Palace - they're now the only team he's scored both home and away against in the competition. It's no wonder Mourinho has left him out.

United paid the price for their lethargic start in the 11th minute.

The Premier League match between Crystal Palace and Manchester United will be broadcast on NBCSN.

Matic was interrupted by Mourinho in his post-match interview...

You need luck to win in the last minute but I say we deserved it because our domination in the last half hour was huge.

At half-time he replaced Scott McTominay with the superb Marcus Rashford, while Juan Mata and Luke Shaw also made important contributions from the bench.

But just three minutes after the interval, United were caught cold again.

Manchester United salvaged a 3-2 win against Crystal Palace on Monday night.

"It was a nice goal", said Matic.

Mourinho was raging on the touchline, but Smalling gave United a lifeline in the 55th minute. The ball dropped to Matic about 30 yards out and the midfielder unleashed a sensational dipping half-volley that swerved into the top corner.

Benteke cleared off the line as United piled on the pressure, before the Palace striker forced a world-class save from De Gea down the other end.

Alexis Sanchez and Paul Pogba, arguably United's two most gifted outfield players, are struggling the make the impact they should.

Roy Hodgson recalled Martin Kelly and Jeff Schlupp from long-term injuries, while United made only one change from their comeback victory over Chelsea in Jesse Lingard.

The opening goal was a just reward for Palace's positivity as Benteke was allowed to cut in across the box before squaring the ball to Townsend, whose first-touch shot found the far corner, albeit a deflection off Victor Lindelof.
