Gary Neville: What will worry Jose Mourinho about Man United

Adjust Comment Print

Serbian Midfielder Nemanja Matic scored a stunning stoppage time victor as Manchester United came from two goals down to win 3-2 and go second in the English Premier League table and leave Crystal Palace in the relegation zone. The only thing is that has saddened me today is the fact we've gone home with no points.

United trailed to goals from Andros Townsend and Patrick van Aanholt before Chris Smalling gave the visitors a lifeline.

Manchester United's dramatic comeback against Crystal Palace has set them up perfectly for Liverpool's visit to Old Trafford this weekend, according to Nemanja Matic.

"He scored with Chelsea an unbelievable goal like this one at Goodison Park against Everton", Mourinho said.

"In the end we needed that little bit of luck in the last minute".

"Normally we don't find ourselves 2-0 down but on an occasion like tonight, at a tough place like Selhurst Park, we dug in and it's a big win".

Joyner is one of the best young safeties in the game while Watkins caught eight touchdowns past year from Jared Goff. Few running backs have ever earned $26.6 million guaranteed over two seasons, as Bell now stands to do.

Since Sir Alex Ferguson stepped down as manager, Manchester United has struggled to secure a top four finish. I will be like that until my last day.

Matic's goal capped a relatively decent personal performance from the Serb, who is looking like returning to the form he showed just after signing for the Red Devils.

The fact remains Matic has been an upgrade on the previous options for Manchester United and was a key player in the vital points they picked up before Christmas, winning 13 of their first 18 matches.

"I think Sanchez has been worse than Pogba", said the former Liverpool defender. "We worked hard, we played today a good game, we created a lot of chances against a top team and I don't know, I hope the situation is gonna turn around to our side in a moment, I'm sure, if we continue like this".

"The quality is there for sure but we have to be honest we have to do more because in this league every team is very strong".

Liverpool great Souness, who won three European Cups and five league titles in his six full seasons at the club, remains adamant that this fixture remains the standout one in the English football calendar.
