Man-U made to sweat by Crystal Palace

"I don't think I should need convincing that the team has qualities". United trailed 2-0 at Crystal Palace and were on the verge of taking a big hit in the standings before producing a stunning second-half comeback to win 3-2.

Sanchez gave the ball away 19 times in the first half while Pogba's attempted long-range "Hollywood pass" led to Palace's first goal, scored by Andros Townsend.

The United boss continued to say that to win the game "we had to take risks" like moving Jesse Lingard to right-back to be "an extra man attacking other areas" which caused a different type of problem for the Palace players.

"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 hope you were not the man of the match", Mourinho could be heard saying off-screen. I don't like my teams to lose their organization like we did, but it was an incredible match and a very important win for us.

After the game, Mourinho refused to elaborate on what he actually told the players at half-time, but confirmed he used some colourful language.

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.

"We had an unbelievable attitude, very good quality in second half, but we made so many defensive mistakes, and I don't just mean my defenders, I'm speaking about the team in general".

"No, I was not", Matic replied.

"I always believe we can win".

"But, with that disgraceful, childish, so many adjectives for the second goal everything changed".

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

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

The victory here on Monday lifted United back into second place in the English Premier League, though with just a two-point advantage over Liverpool, their next opponents, reports Efe news agency.

United have not been too impressive in recent weeks and Liverpool have a real chance to give them a beating this weekend, but Klopp needs to make sure he gives himself the best chance possible going into the game at Old Trafford.
