  • Blind will miss the Monday clash

United were 2-0 down at Crystal Palace but bounced back to win 3-2, with Nemanja Matic bagging the victor with an added-time rocket.

Jeffrey Schlupp's quick thinking at a free-kick just inside the United half allowed Van Aanholt to charge clean through on goal and he produced an emphatic finish to beat De Gea, who was rooted to the spot.

Meanwhile, Gary Neville has criticised Paul Pogba for performing as if "everything he does is like a YouTube or Instagram video" during the first half.

However, Werner would jump at the chance to play in England, and United appear to be his preferred destination ahead of the likes of Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal.

"It was a bit of a Groundhog Day moment", he told Sky Sports.

"It's like everything he does is like a YouTube or Instagram video. It's like it's not serious, it's like a joke to him in terms of the way he goes about things".

Jose Mourinho was enraged in the sidelines.

Mourinho was able to pick better players, but for almost two-thirds of the game Palace were the better team.




"They're usually efficient teams, they do things really calmly and are usually solid in defence".

Since the former United manager's retirement in 2013, the team have often appeared to lack numerous traits they consistently demonstrated during his reign. "They are nowhere near that level out there".

But, United managed to come from behind to take all three points, thanks to goals from Chris Smalling, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic.

"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".

"If we didn't concede that second goal and we came from the dressing room direct to change the result I would say I did something good at halftime", he said.

"I don't like my teams to lose their organisation like we did, but it was an unbelievable match and a very important win for us", Mourinho said after the match.

"We started bad once more". Five or six teams can realistically compete for the title.
