Mourinho takes hilarious tumble as Man Utd win at Crystal Palace

Ibrahimovic has been ruled out ahead of a potential move to America

United came back from 2-0 down to win at Crystal Palace with Nemanja Matic's dramatic injury time clincher in a throwback to the days of Sir Alex Ferguson when they were famed for last gasp victories.

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.

The visitors fought back to win thanks to goals from Chris Smalling, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic.

United is still 16 points behind runaway leader Manchester City.

After the game, Mourinho refused to elaborate on what he actually told the players at half-time, but confirmed he used some colourful language.

"Sanchez has lost the ball 19 times in that first half and that's unbelievable".

"Instead of three midfielders we played only with two. We had everything in front of us to do, and we did it".

"We had an awesome attitude, very good quality in second half, but we made so many defensive mistakes, and I don't just mean my defenders, I'm speaking about the team in general".

"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". "I am happy for the team, not because I scored but because we won and picked up the three points".

"The quality is there for sure but we have to be honest, we have to do more". Five or six teams can realistically compete for the title.

"To come away with nothing, as we did in our last game against Tottenham, and lose to that worldie from Matic is very hard to take".

Jose Mourinho admitted that he embarked on a foul mouthed half-time tirade to inspire Manchester United to a sensational 3-2 victory over Crystal Palace.

"We're back in the relegation zone but after seven games we were eight points adrift and everyone told me we were already down. It wasn't even impossible that we'd score the third goal". Mata collected the ball before passing back to Paul Pogba.

He was playing so badly that United legend Gary Neville, working for Sky Sports, was moved to say: "It's like everything he does is like a YouTube or Instagram video".

"It's like everything he does is like a YouTube or Instagram video". "It's like it's not serious it's like a joke to him in terms of the way in which he goes about things".

Mourinho and Conte have not seen eye-to-eye for the majority of the latter's time in England, with the pair engaging in a protracted and often unseemly war of words this season. In no way do they appear to be the team with a typical "Jose defence".

"He won't recognise, I don't recognise this as a performance".
