EPL: What Mourinho said after dramatic win at Crystal Palace

EPL: What Mourinho said after dramatic win at Crystal Palace

Matic nearly equalized with a thunderous strike that Benteke cleared off the line and United's pressure was rewarded in the 76th minute.

Chris Smalling launched the fightback with a header in the 55th minute and Romelu Lukaku equalized in the 76th at Selhurst Park.

"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", Mourinho said.

"There were a few strong words at half-time relating to their attitude and the intensity of the game".

"What I can say was all about the tactical positioning".

"We'll show the same character as we did (against Palace). but we have to be honest. we have to play better, especially when you see our first half performance". The Serbian has repeated his tendency, frustrating as it was at Chelsea, to tail off in the latter half of the season.

"He scored with Chelsea an fantastic goal like this one at Goodison Park [against Everton]", Mourinho said. The only thing is that has saddened me today is the fact we've gone home with no points.

"It's very hard but we kept faith and belief". I will be like that until my last day.




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.

"No, I was not", Matic replied.

The victory here on Monday lifted United back into second place in the English Premier League, though with just a two-point advantage over Liverpool, their next opponents, reports Efe news agency.

Smalling feels it must have been disheartening for Manchester United's league rivals to see them coming back in such a manner at a hard away ground such as Selhurst Park.

"Twice in eight days we've thoroughly deserved at least a point, if not all three".

And his old club's defeat was doubly sweet for the 34-year-old, who is a Manchester United supporter.

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson on possible relegation: "At the moment there is no need for any of us, certainly not the players or myself, to give that any thought. I'm happy that we go in to the Liverpool game with these three points".

"But you always know the quality they possess and the strength and depth they have".
