Jose Mourinho's men efforts in the final minutes of the game paid off at stoppage time, with Nemanja Matic grabbing a victor for United with a spectacular strike.

Gary Neville made it clear that he was unhappy with Paul Pogba's first-half performance against Crystal Palace, ripping into the Manchester United midfielder after a lacklustre showing that had his side trailing at the break against a team now in the relegation zone.

Luckily the risk paid off, although judging by the below footage and what fans have noticed about it, United's players didn't want Matic to shoot either.

Yet, for all their time on the ball, Mourinho's side created precious little to worry Hennessey in the Palace goal.

The game was then an absorbing end-to-end battle as both sides attacked but United found the equaliser when Sanchez's shot was deflected onto the bar and came back for Lukaku who managed to find some space inside the area and fired home.

MANCHESTER UNITED manager Jose Mourinho has no new injury concerns ahead of the game. After 2-0, to lose a game this way.

Early in the second half Patrick van Aanholt beats David de Gea and Crystal Palace were dreaming of their first win over United in the Premier League.

At 2-0 down Jose Mourinho's men looked dead and buried, but got a quick response through Chris Smalling's back-post header.

'And De Gea, you are superhuman man, you could catch a bullet'. The ricochet was skied backwards and landed on Matic's left foot.

Smalling's goal was followed by a superb effort by Romelu Lukaku in the 76th minute which equalised the score for the visitors.

With the title already heading to Manchester City, the question facing United and Mourinho is whether they can bridge the gap next season. A win on Saturday will mean Liverpool will take control of second place in the league.

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.

Two minutes into the second half, Crystal Palace resumed the game quickly after a foul.
