Manchester United must improve, says Mourinho after Matic snatches unlikely victory

Mourinho will be without six United players against Crystal Palace

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

Nemanja Matic was named as United's best performer on Monday night to give the Red Devils a cracker of a win at Selhurst Park.

United went into the half time break trailing 1-0 thanks to a deflected Andros Townsend strike in what was an error strewn first half.

Gary Neville has criticised Paul Pogba for performing as if "everything he does is like a YouTube or Instagram video" during the first half of Manchester United's come-from-behind win at Crystal Palace.

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".

"I hope you were not the man of the match", Mourinho could be heard saying off-screen.

Palace warranted their half-time lead because, while United's attacking game was disjointed, the hosts pushed for a second as Alexander Sorloth drilled a low shot which De Ge saved diving to his left.

"Matic scored fantastic goals like this when he was with me at Chelsea, at Goodison Park, against Benfica".

The military also said only terror targets are being destroyed and that " utmost care " is being taken to avoid harming civilians. Ankara says YPG is a terrorist extension of Kurdistan Workers' Party which has waged an insurgency against the Turkish state.

Rashford and I are practically the same age, so there is no surprise that, while one was making a difference on the pitch and the other was throwing empty Rubicon cartons everywhere, we were feeling the same way. Their second goal made things much more hard for us, but Chris Smalling's goal was very important.

That second goal was a goal to show kids in academies around the country, to show that top players can concede silly goals. "But it is a goal of two extra points".

Midfielder Matic picked an opportune moment to grab his first United goal.

"That gave us that edge where we thought we could go after them".

"We walked in (at half-time) and already knew we weren't playing enough, needed to increase it, and conceded so early as well (in the second half) with a sloppy goal".

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.

United had slipped to third before the game behind this Saturday's opponents Liverpool.
