Nemanja Matic's stunner helps Manchester United beat Crystal Palace

Juan Mata

Mourinho insisted: "I wasn't surprised by Nemanja's goal because he scored an awesome one for me at Goodison Park for and a victor in the Champions League against Sporting Lisbon".

Victory over Palace has allowed United to move back into second spot in the Premier League table.

That set the stage for Serbia midfielder Matic to score for the first time since his move from Chelsea previous year with a blistering blast from the edge of the area in stoppage-time.

Goals from Andros Townsend and Patrick van Aanholt saw Roy Hodgson's men enjoying a 2-0 lead by the 58th minute of Tuesday morning's match.

Man United manager Jose Mourinho looks on against Crystal Palace. "If we had drawn the game - I don't think anyone, Jose included - would have said it was a scandal", he said.

China's finance ministry says that the country's defense budget this year will rise 6 percent to 1.1 trillion yuan ($173 billion). Li also said China would keep its prudent monetary policy neutral , reaffirming authorities' position.

"I can not tell you half of the things I told my team at half-time because there would be lots of bleeping on television, ' the Portuguese told the Metro".

On the Reds' impressive comeback victory, he added: "After the second goal it was very hard for us to come back; we showed character and did exactly what the manager wanted us to do".

Aguero, 29, still scored 33 goals in all competitions, more than he ever had for City in a single season, but often found himself on the sidelines in the second half of the season as Guardiola opted instead for Gabriel Jesus.

Finally, it was defender Chris Smalling who leapt highest to head home and score the first United goal.

In fact, in the 91st minute, when the ball did fall to Matic, even his fellow teammates expected him to pass it to a forward more capable of scoring a goal.

And speaking of three-pointers, they were certainly expected to come at a huge clip between these two teams, and they sure did. Ariza made a 3-pointer before stealing the ball from Kyrie Irving and finishing with a basket on the other end to cap the run.

"We believed until the end and we did exactly what the manager wanted from us".

They were injury hit too, with nine players missing, yet they had United on the ropes as they went two in front.

Mourinho started by saying that "Marcus was good" when he came on for Scott McTominay at half-time as he "immediately created unsafe situations and opened more spaces" for other players to get into and that caused chaos for the Palace defenders.

Two goals later and the United world had a far sunnier complexion.

Matic is likely to be a key player for the Reds in a crucial run of three successive home games in three different competitions, starting with the visit of rivals Liverpool to Old Trafford on Saturday.
