Manchester United defeats Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park to go 2nd on EPL Table

Crystal Palace 2-3 Manchester United

Crystal Palace goals: Andros Townsend 11, Patrick Van Aanholt 48

Manchester United goals: Chris Smalling 55' min, Romelu Lukaku 76" min, Nemanja Matic 90" min

Crystal Palace goals from Andros Townsend and Patrick van Aanholt put Roy Hodgson's side on course for a first top-flight win against Manchester United in 19 matches going back to 1991, but Jose Mourinho's men battled back to victory. Serbia international Nemanja Matic scored an amazing stoppage-time winner as Man Utd came from 2-0 down to go second on the Premier League table and leave Crystal Palace in the relegation zone. Mighty Manchester United came back from being 2-0 behind to win in injury-time at Crystal Palace, due to a spectacular left-boot late strike from Nemanja Matic at 90 minutes into the top corner of the net. Chris Smalling scored Man United’s first goal, a header, at 55’, and Romulu Lukaku scored the equalizer at 76' in an exciting clash at Selhurst Park that gave the Red Devils 3 valuable points moving them back up to second place behind arch-rivals Manchester City in their battle for a top-four finish.

United manager José Mourinho was proud of his men’s intensity in fighting back from two goals down, but conceded their late victory was a “fantastic comeback with mistakes” after Nemanja Matic’s strike from 30 yards.

“It was a fantastic comeback but with mistakes,” Mourinho said. “We started bad once more. Not pressing the ball, not pressing the opposition and giving them too much space. Then they scored the goal. In the second half we conceded again, a goal to show kids in academies around the country that top teams can concede silly goals. But after that the attitude was fantastic, and the intensity, the quality, the dynamic. You need luck to win in the last minute but I say we deserved it because our domination in the last half hour was huge. I have to recognize Palace did very well. Roy was aggressive, very clever. He tried to bring the emotion of the game to his team. Congratulations to them. It’s very hard for them to go home without a single point because they gave absolutely everything but don’t get to go home with a single point.”

At the break Mourinho replaced Scott McTominay with Marcus Rashford, and Juan Mata and Luke Shaw also came off the bench. 

“Marcus was good,” said Mourinho. “He immediately created several dangerous situations. He helped to open up lots more spaces in between their defenders, where our attacking players could make runs. So he was very good for us.”

Roy Hodgson only felt “sadness” after the loss.

“I saw a group of players give their all for the club against a team who on paper are bigger than us. I can’t criticise any player or any person for the effort they made or their discipline tactically,” said Hodson. “If Matic doesn’t score a worldie I’d have been sitting here saying what a good performance, what a good point. But any analysis builds backward from the result.”

“The next game is just as difficult playing the reigning champions and the 11 who played today are the 11 I have fit,” added Hodson about his side’s next match against reigning Premier League champions Chelsea. “I don’t need convincing that this team has qualities and enormous fighting spirit. Perhaps some of these fortunate moments will fall our way as the season goes on. But whether you’re in relegation or just out of it the focus is on the same: getting points.”

With the loss of the 3 points, Crystal Palace could end their season on the bottom of the Premier League Table. If they go down by a point or two, this defeat to Manchester United will be a result that they will truly regret after almost winning when they were two goals up at home, with 42 minutes to play, and then conceding three goals to go down in defeat at the end to relegation, a point adrift of 17th place Southampton. Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson is fighting the drop using everything he knows with the setback of having so many players out. Palace have now lost all nine Premier League games they have played this season without Wilfried Zaha in the side. Benteke and Alexander Sorloth were in form and worked hard for a victory, but the Eagles were desperately lacking Zaha's pace and drive. Palace have failed to win a single game in their last six and are without ten first-teamers including Wilfried Zaha through injury. 

Seventy-year-old Roy Hodson is the manager who saved West Brom and Fulham from the drop when both clubs looked buried. Hodson talked about his side’s chances of Premier League survival.

"It's been a Groundhog Day moment," said Roy Hodgson. "We once again go away with no points and like the game against Tottenham - I thought we deserved something. I was expecting to come away with one point but once again it is nothing and I feel devastated for the players. We took the game to Manchester United. If we had drawn the game, I don't think anyone - Jose included - would have said it was a scandal." 

Nemanja Matic talked about his first goal ever for Manchester United.

“Palace had the crowd behind them but we showed character. We did exactly what the manager wanted. I’m happy. When the ball bounced, I knew it was going to be a good shot. I know scoring is not my job but I have to do it sometimes.”

Crystal Palace Vs. Manchester United - Premier League

Red Devils No.1 goalie David De Gea gets massive credit for his stunning one-handed save just after Lukaku’s equalizer to help maintain Manchester United’s record of not losing to Crystal Palace in now 20 Premier League matches.

Andros Townsend's shot on goal at 11 minutes deflected in off Victor Lindelof to put Palace ahead 1-0. Patrick van Aanholt went past United’s defense to beat David de Gea at 48 minutes making the score 2-0, igniting Crystal Palace’s hopes of a first Premier League win against United. Then at 55 minutes, Chris Smalling headed in Antonio Valencia's cross – 2-1. Nemanja Matic shot was cleared off the line by Christian Benteke at 74 minutes. Star striker Romelu Lukaku equalised with a low finish after Alexis Sanchez's shot deflected up onto the crossbar at 76 mins – 2-2. Man Utd superstar goalie David de Gea made a superb save at 77 minutes to keep out a Christian Benteke header. At 90+1 minutes, Nemanja Matic scored to make it a 2-3 win for United, sending the Red Devils second. If Crystal Palace had won against Jose Mourinho’s Man United side, they would have climbed out of the relegation zone and all the way up to 13th place.

Man City goal: Bernardo Silva (50 min)

A top-form Manchester City club hosted reigning Premier League champions, Chelsea, as Pep Guardiola's talented side took another massive step towards the Premier League 2018 title with an intense "Battle of the Blues" victory at Etihad Stadium in Manchester UK on Sunday. Chelsea now in fifth place have 53 points on the Premier League Table 25 points below Man City. Conte’s side have now suffered a fourth successive away defeat, and a fourth loss in their last five league games. Chelsea’s loss to Man City leaves them 5 points behind fourth-placed Spurs in the battle to qualify for the Champions League.

Portuguese international Bernardo Silva opened the match scoring with a goal for Man City past Chelsea’s defense to the back post. An error from Christensen allowed City to move down the left inside channel. David Silva seized on the loose ball and fired it across the goal face. Bernardo Silva then sent his effort into superstar goalie Thibaut Courtois.

Man City only need 18 goals from their remaining 10 EPL matches to reach 100 in the Premier League this season. Man City can become the first team in Premier League history to reach 100 points in a single season, remarked Chelsea manager Antonio Conte. The Manchester Citizens need 5 wins from 10 games to claim their 3rd league title in 7 seasons. City has 14 home wins in a row, and are 18 points clear at the top over 2nd place Liverpool and need just 12 more points from 9 matches to be named 2017-18 champions. Against Chelsea, City set a new record of 902 passes completed in a Premier League match - the most ever in a Premier League game. Chelsea hold the record for most points after reaching 95 in the 2004-05 season. Chelsea’s Italian boss, won the title with 93 points last season. Guardiola's City are 15 points clear at the top and will finish the season on 105 points, 10 more than the current record if they win their remaining 10 games.

"They have the possibility of reaching 100 points because they're showing to be the best in the league," said Conte. "If they continue with this fire, with this hunger, for sure they can achieve this result. It won't be easy."

City still have to face Manchester United at home on 7 April and Tottenham away on 14 April.

Conte is a "master" tactician and will leave his mark on English football, according to City manager Guardiola. Former Italy boss Conte adopted a 5-3-2 formation to guide Chelsea to the Premier League title in his first season in charge. But the Blues are 22 points adrift of leaders City ahead of their game in Manchester.

"I think Conte is going to leave something to English football. I am sure of that," said Guardiola referring to Chelsea’s 5th Premier League triumph. "What Antonio has done here in the Premier League, maybe the people don't realise. He introduced another way to attack with five at the back, another system. A lot of teams, even Arsenal, had to do a lot of imitating to do that. Tactically, he is a master. He did it amazingly with the national team with Italy and when he went to Turin."

Manchester City’s recent Carabao Cup win was the club’s first silverware under Pep Guardiola.

City won the Carabao Cup defeating Arsenal 3-0 at Wembley, giving Guardiola his first Chelsea trophy as manager. City have lost only once in the league this season and need five wins from their remaining 10 games to clinch the title.

"In this moment they seem unstoppable," said Conte. "We must have great admiration. Sometimes it is very difficult to find a weakness in this team. When you work very well and there is a great feeling between the manager and the club, you can work in the way you want, to try to improve your team in the best way. Manchester City has the possibility to spend a lot of money. When you link this situation - a good manager, much money to spend in the transfer market, the same ambition - this is the final result."

PREMIER LEAGUE: BURNLEY 2-1 EVERTON

Burnley defeated Everton 2-1 at home coming from behind with goals from Ashley Barnes (56 min) and Chris Wood (80 min”) to end their long winless streak to reach a top eight spot on the Premier League Table. Everton's only goal was by new signing Cenk Tosun who opened the match scoring at 20 minutes. 

Everton fans braved harsh weather traveling to play Burnley in what ended up their 6th straight away loss. Burnley manager Sean Dyche won his 250th game in charge and completed the Clarets first league double over Everton since 1959-60. This was the first game Burnley have won in the Premier League since the first part of December. Everton have only won once on the road in the EPL since the start of February 2017. That’s one win in 23 away matches. The game was a showdown between the seventh and ninth place clubs in the chase to a top seventh or eighth place finish just below the Big Six for both of the famous old historic sides. The Clarets are now in the seventh spot, while the Toffees remain in the top half in 9th. 

After their loss, Boss Sam and Everton were booed off the field by their traveling supporters.

Big Sam Allardyce was interviewed post-match.

Before the match, Big Sam Allardyce was interviewed by the press.

“The performance at Watford, while not the best, looked like it was going to end up as a result. From an attacking point of view we got into the final third on 36 occasions and in the penalty area even more so. But we only had seven shots at goal and two on target, so we’re trying to be a bit more creative on the front line. And defensively we were sound apart from the goal we let in. So we have to try to balance the two. Let’s try and be creative and score more. It’s going to be tough against Burnley because they’re very good on their own patch. Michael Keane wants to show how good he is on his return, hopefully he will be solid and sound as he was for Burnley.”

Squads

Burnley made only one change to their squad from their recent draw away at Turf Moor with Southampton. James Tarkowski replaced Kevin Long in the defence and Everton made three changes to the XI named in their defeat at Watford. Cenk Tosun and Dominic Calvert-Lewin started, while Seamus Coleman returns at right back. Wayne Rooney and Oumar Niasse were dropped to the bench, while Jonjoe Kenny was not named.

Focus on Chris Wood, Burnley

Chris Wood signed a new four-year contract with top-tier Premier League club Burnley for an undisclosed club-record fee on August 21, widely reported as £15 million. Wood made his Burnley debut on 27 August against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley Stadium in the Premier League, and scored on his debut. Wood was on loan to 6 different clubs before joining Leicester City in 2015. After a loan spell with Ipswich Town in 2015, he signed for Championship club Leeds United where he became the top goal scorer in the 2016–17 season. Last summer Wood joined Burnley for a club record fee in the Premier League. Wood has been capped 56 times for the New Zealand national team, scoring 24 goals. Wood played for the side at the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

Leicester City v Burnley - Premier League

Wood scored his first pro football goal for West Brom on 15 September 2009, a beautiful 25-meter strike into the top left corner, in a 3–1 win over Doncaster Rovers. Wood scored his second senior goal in a 2–0 win over Huddersfield Town less than seven minutes after coming off the bench in West Brom's FA Cup third-round tie on 2 January 2010.
