GETTY Crystal Palace vs Man Utd LIVE Premier League updates as Anthony Martial misses out

Serbian Midfielder Nemanja Matic scored a stunning stoppage time victor as Manchester United came from two goals down to win 3-2 and go second in the English Premier League table and leave Crystal Palace in the relegation zone.

Matic secured a long rebound to set up the decider. The Frenchman fired a shot, which was deflected by the defense.

But, according to the Times, Mourinho will not be retrospectively banned as he was last season after a similar incident occurred during a match against West Ham at Old Trafford.

The win keeps United in second place ahead of their showdown with Liverpool to come on Saturday and Mourinho feels the win wouldn't have been possible without the tactical moves that the substitutes had on the team.

"We are improving. We need to do more for sure, because in let's say small games we have dropped some very important points". I don't like my teams to lose their organization like we did, but it was an awesome match and a very important win for us.

Matic picked the ideal time to score his first United goal after Chris Smalling and Romelu Lukaku had dragged United back from two goals down.

"If the Matic goal had went in his net, I would have been disappointed if he didn't save it". Quick thinking from Jeffrey Schlupp saw him release Van Aanholt with a quickly-taken free-kick and the Dutchman lashed a shot past De Gea at his near post from 12 yards out.

Benteke cleared off the line as United piled on the pressure, before the Palace striker forced a world-class save from De Gea down the other end.

It will take more than one impressive comeback to make Mourinho completely happy. He sidestepped a defender before bending in a feed for Smalling, who headed in a score past Hennessey.

The double change, added to the half-time substitution of Marcus Rashford for McTominay, made a marked improvement in United's play and they drew level in the 76th minute on a great individual effort by Romelu Lukaku.

United trailed to goals from Andros Townsend and Patrick van Aanholt before Chris Smalling gave the visitors a lifeline.
