United star compares Palace comeback to Fergie era

Matic scored his first United goal with a superb, volleyed added-time victor as they recovered from two goals down to seal a 3-2 victory that took them back up to second place above Liverpool ahead of Saturday's blockbuster Premier League clash. And in the second half, we conceded again.

Manchester United is in second place with 62 points, 16 points behind the leaders, Manchester City.

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.

"We have to do more if we want to win, as Liverpool is a team with great quality".

Manchester United have come from two goals down to win a Premier League game for the first time since December 2013 (at Hull), while this was Crystal Palace's first defeat in the English top-tier competition from a two-goal lead.

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.

"He scored a winning goal in Lisbon in the Champions League against Sporting".

"I can only tell you the other half, and the other half was about the tactical positioning. I can not tell you because you would have lots of (bleeps), but half of it was tactical information".

Alexis Sanchez's shot deflected off James Tomkins and ran to Lukaku, who worked himself into position to fire low past Hennessey.

Liverpool are in action against Porto on Tuesday and despite going into the game 5-0 up on aggregate, Jurgen Klopp has said he will not rest players looking ahead to the Manchester United game.

Third bottom Palace deserved better, but they remain one point from safety after a heartbreaking loss. "I was expecting to come away with one point but we've got nothing and I find that tough for the players to take".

Speaking after last night's game, Matic told Sky Sports: 'I think that we are improving.
