EPL: What Mourinho said after dramatic win at Crystal Palace

Grant SmithMar 08, 2018

Smalling triggered the Manchester United comeback with a headed goal, with Romelu Lukaku levelling the scoreline with a fine finish in the 76th minute.

In the last eight days, Manchester United have shown they can fight.

Andros Townsend described his Crystal Palace team-mates' devastation after they were the victims of a remarkable Manchester United comeback on Monday night.

Mourinho's side started slowly at Selhurst Park and found themselves 2-0 down in the first half, pushing the Portuguese boss to take out his frustration on a nearby water bottle early in the second.

The win took United back up to second place, while defeat for Palace left them in the relegation zone and Hodgson feeling they had been just as hard done by as they were in last month's 1-0 defeat by Tottenham Hotspur. The game was a minute into added time when the Serbia worldwide unleashed a screamer from distance into the left corner to make Mourinho's post-match press conference slightly easier.

With Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez particularly profligate, United was awful in the first half and conceded the opening goal when Andros Townsend's shot from the edge of the area spun into the top corner off the back of United defender Victor Lindelof in the 11th.

"We played very good quality football in the second half, but we made so many defensive mistakes in the first". The win moves them back into second in the Premier League above Liverpool, who visit Old Trafford on Saturday.

Palace extended their lead shortly after half-time through Patrick van Aanholt to leave Manchester United on the brink of successive away defeats. An Alexis Sanchez pass, which hit the advertising hoardings with Antonio Valencia in acres of space, summed it up.

Former Manchester United defender Neville believes the Red Devils were startling inefficient at Selhurst Park which will worry Mourinho.

He said: "It's been a Groundhog Day moment".

United manager Jose Mourinho described his team's defending for that goal as "disgraceful, childish".

Asked about the momentum gained ahead of the Liverpool game, he said: "I think it has teed up perfectly that we have gone above them again".

Manchester United have six first-team players missing.
