EPL: Matic stunner fires Man United to second spot

Blind will miss the Monday clash

The Portuguese tactician's side trailed 1-0 at the break, and things got worse when Patrick van Aanholt extended the Eagles' lead three minutes into the second half.

Manchester United defender Chris Smalling claims "Fergie time" is back after Nemanja Matic's stoppage time victor Chris Smalling claims Manchester United have proved that Fergie time is still alive and well.

Hodgson's side would have climbed all the way up to 13th place with a win. In these kind of games, if we can manage to win we can compete for the title.

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".

And it was there to see again, this time with Rashford an active participant, against Roy Hodsgon's men, as Mourinho did what supporters have been desperately crying out for by simply going for it.

"We took the game to Manchester United".

"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".

Shubhankar Sharma shines again to keep control in Mexico
Sharma is eyeing to become the first since Jim Benepe at the 1988 Western Open to win a first US PGA Tour title in the tour debut. He rolled in a 16-foot birdie putt at 14 to reclaim sole possession of the lead, and he was two clear even after his bogey at 16.

With nine games left, Palace are third from bottom with 27 points but only a point outside the safety zone. 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.

In the end, Mourinho got the result he required as United moved back into second above Liverpool.

Midfielder Matic picked an opportune moment to grab his first United goal.

With a two-point advantage held over their arch-rivals ahead of Saturday's clash at Old Trafford (12.30pm), Matic is relishing the challenge off the back of beating Palace. The first ball in was turned aside, but Antonio Valencia was able to direct a second cross to an unmarked Chris Smalling, who scored with a header.

Is David De Gea the only world-class player at Manchester United? Nemanja Matic scored his first goal for United in 37 appearances.

"I don't think there was any ranting and raving, but there was a degree where we walked in and already knew we weren't playing enough, needed to increase it", Smalling said.
