Manchester United Survive Crystal Palace Scare As Manchester City Defeat Chelsea

It's the fourth time Matic has claimed the star-man accolade in his debut season at United so far, after also being named Man of the Match in the Reds' 4-0 wins over West Ham and Everton, and the 2-1 triumph at West Bromwich Albion in December. The climax was completed when Nemanja Matic leathered the ball from 30 yards to score the victor and cause euphoria within the United camp.

Crystal Palace took the lead through an Andros Townsend's deflected goal in the 16 minute. "If we had drawn the game - I don't think anyone, Jose included - would have said it was a scandal", he said.

"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", said Mourinho.

United won the only trophy the club had yet to win, a trophy which meant the team played in this season's Champions League. where they've cruised through the group stage and look well placed to advance ahead of next week's home game against Sevilla.

"If that ball goes over the crossbar or hits the crossbar and comes out or goes wide of the goal, I'd have been sitting here saying "well done guys" and what a good performance, what a good point".

"We walked in (at half-time) and already knew we weren't playing enough, needed to increase it, and conceded so early as well (in the second half) with a sloppy goal".

Non-bailable warrants issued against Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi
The official said the seized documents are "very important" and the chawl address is related to Nirav Modi's company. The special court was set up to hear matters under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

"We're in the relegation zone, but after seven games everyone told me that we were relegated".

United's players switched off for Palace's second goal in the 48th, Jeffrey Schlupp taking a quick free kick and Patrick van Aanholt running through before applying the finish.

Matic's outstanding strike was his first goal for the club and he said: "After 2-0 it was very hard for us to come back because they had the crowd behind them but we showed character".

When the went two goals down, the United players waited to kick-off again, several with their hands on their hips.

The victory saw United strengthen their hold on a place in the top four, returning to second in the table and opening up a nine-point gap on fifth-placed Chelsea.

United have not been too impressive in recent weeks and Liverpool have a real chance to give them a beating this weekend, but Klopp needs to make sure he gives himself the best chance possible going into the game at Old Trafford.
