Three reasons why Manchester United must beat Crystal Palace

Nemanja Matic scored a stunning long-range goal in injury time as Manchester United came from two goals down to beat Crystal Palace 3-2 in a wild English Premier League game on Monday.

"We had an awesome attitude, very good quality in second half, but we made so many defensive mistakes, and I don't just mean my defenders, I'm speaking about the team in general".

Whilst local neighbours City continue to run riot and away with the Premier League title, the battle for the three remaining places below them intensifies, with United fighting hard with Liverpool and Spurs for second place and to ensure Champions League qualification, with Chelsea not yet out of the picture, although their poor recent form makes the picture a little easier for the afore-mentioned teams. I will be like that until my last day.

"But then the players kept an awesome attitude".

"I can only tell you the other half, and the other half was about the tactical positioning".

"The message was: half I can not tell you because you would have lots of (bleeps) on the television, half of it was tactical information". We showed character after going 2-0 down and they had the crowd behind them.

"I think Marcus [Rashford] was good and immediately he created risky situations and immediately he opened more space in between defenders". He said at half-time that we had to do more than in the first half and I'm happy for these three important points.

"I have to say that Roy (Hodgson) had a fantastic gameplan, really aggressive, two big strong strikers to play direct to them and cause us problems with crosses and direct football and second balls, also counter-attacking with Townsend and Patrick". The start was not good because they were good and match like this are only possible if the two teams are good and if the referee is good and the referee I don't know if he made any mistake here and there, but his intention was to let the game go, not to give many whistles. So sometimes the victor is the one that deserves congrats but I have been many times on the losing side and sometimes I felt I did many things right and I think Roy did everything right.

"We want to finish second, but it is huge pressure for us to finish in the top four". We gambled a little bit with a two against two at the back without Matic's protection in front of them. "Even a point would have been good for us tonight after being 2-0 behind".
