Jose Mourinho Finds Comeback Win "Amazing" in Numerous Ways

Mourinho's team has retained the second spot in the Premier League table usurping Liverpool and will now lock horns with Jurgen Klopp's side on March 10.

United went 2-0 down before they rallied back in the game with goals from Chris Smalling, Romelu Lukaku and Matic to emerge victorious.

Matic has managed to claim the accolade four times since his debut with the club, after he was named Man of the Match in their 4-0 wins over West Ham and Everton, and in the 2-1 victory against West Brom Albion back in December.

The Eagles went two goals to the good in the first half at Selhurst Park on Monday night thanks to hits from Andros Townsend and Patrick van Aanholt.

A Crystal Palace steward was caught on Sky Sports celebrating Matic's stoppage time victor with the United players. "At the moment we aren't relegated, we're in the relegation zone, so I think that's a positive", he said.

"It was a hard match for me because my team made so many mistakes".

"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". True, much more is expected of star players like Alexis Sanchez and Paul Pogba - who has no issue with Jose Mourinho, despite what you've read elsewhere.

He wasn't being overly pessimistic; he sat with his face sunk into his hands as United roared back with three second-half goals.

Matic then saw an effort cleared off the line by Benteke before, in the 76th minute, his fellow Belgian Lukaku found the vital equalising goal. It would have been nice to have two more points, but we still would have been very much in a relegation battle.

Immediately upon leaving his post to celebrate the goal, a jubilant Man United fan can be seen tumbling out the stand exactly where the steward was supposed to be.

"It shows that no matter how bad we might be playing in that first half, that we can go after teams".

United is still 16 points behind runaway leader Manchester City.

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.
